Bitlocker requirements

כל התגובות

  • Hello,

    As far as I know BitLocker require TPM in order to keep the key in this chip.

    If you don't use TPM the key will be stored on external drive (USB key for example)

    Best Regards,

  • Hi!

    As stated earlier, the TPM chip generates and stores the actual encryption keys.

    On computers without a compatible TPM, BitLocker can provide encryption, but not the added security of locking keys with the TPM, therefore you’ll have to use a USB flash drive as a “startup key” that must be present every boot if you enable this option.

    Kind regards,
    Leon

    - yes, and all that means Bitlocker CAN be used WITHOUT TPM.

  • What hasn't been mentioned: in corporate environments, you would not want to allow the user to manipulate his hard drive at will. Using bitlocker without a TPM, the user may manipulate the hartd drive using his password or USB based key! With a TPM, he can't do that. So no, it's not a requirement, but by all means, it is recommendable to combine bitlocker with a TPM.
