TPM / Bitlocker implementation on a domain join machine which is being shared by multiple users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Project - There are more then 2 users who access the same Windows 8 machine using their domain credential and we need to ensure that we should implement TPM/bitlocker for that machine and users should not share their Bitlocker password.

    Machine Detail.

    TPM mother board.

    OS - Windows 8 x64.

    Domain joined machine (DC - windows 2008 R2)

    Number of users going to use this machine with their domain credential - more then 1

    Any suggestion, pointer to implement the same would be great.

    Thanks in advance,

    Arun

  • Hi,

    I'm a little unclear about the question.

    Bitlocker is a per device function so users will able to access the drive when they have the password.

    You can use EFS instead which is per user encrypt function. But you still cannot stop users from sharing password if they would like to.

  • Thanks Shaon,

    The machines which are bitlocked are shared by more then 1 person, so if we do bitlocking then we have to share the drive unlock password with them and that is what we don't want.

    I will review the EFS option here though,
