Defining default keys for file based encryption with Data Exchange
Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) SafeGuard Data Exchange
Operating systems All supported operating systems
There are different ways to assign default keys to the FileBased encryption of SafeGuard Enterprise:
Note: When you are using a "selectable" key configuration and at the same time selecting the option "Initial Encryption of all files = NO", then the first key in the user's keyring will be used as default key until the user chooses another one. Therefore, new files might be encrypted with a preselected group key or company key (which is the first key in the database for this user) although the user has not yet defined a key. The sort order of the keyring on the client cannot be controlled in any way.
