Enforce bitlocker software encryption on FDE disks (Samsung SSDs) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    some of our Samsung SSD are affected by a security issue: 

    As Samsung will not offer a patch for the internal SSDs we are thinking about adding a bitlocker encryption. As far as we now, as soon as bitlocker recognized an hardware encryption modul it will use the hardware encryption instead of a software encryption. So we need to make sure bitlocker is using software encryption. We just checked the documention but weren't successful. Any idea on how to:

    - verify if bitlocker is using software or hardware encryption
    - force software encryption through gpo

    Thanks for you help
