Hi All:


I was wondering what your approach or thoughts are surrounding:


1.)    key management of Vista's built in Encryption capability - are
you going to try and centralize key management via Active Directory or
just let each individual hold their own keys?

a.      My concerns with individuals holding their own keys are:  what
if they get hit by a bus? What if we are asked by their Dean, the FBI or
local law enforcement to do a Forensic exam on their system?  

2.)    Are you going to establish a policy or guidelines that talk about
Faculty and Staff key encryption key management responsibilities?  If so
would you mind sharing such a policy with us?
