Transferring Encryption Keys

Users can transfer encryption keys between removable storage devices and computers by exporting and importing the encryption keys.

Ivanti Device and Application Control administrators can export and import encryption keys for user using the Media Authorizer module. Encryption keys can be exported to a file or device, and imported from a device. Export to a file is the most secure method for transferring encryption keys. Transferring an encryption key directly to a device is less secure because security is primarily dependent upon the password complexity.
