Streaming Repository Encryption

(Available with the High Security module)

Files stored on the disk in EFT Server's Virtual File System (VFS) can be transparently encrypted during read/write using Microsoft's Encrypting File System (EFS). Data is encrypted as it is written to disk, and decrypted prior to transmission.

To enable streaming repository encryption

  1. In the administration interface, connect to EFT Server and click the VFS tab.

  2. In the left pane, right-click the parent folder you want to configure, then click Encrypt Contents.

  3. If the folder you selected has subfolders, a confirmation message appears.

  4. Specify whether to Apply changes to this folder only or Apply changes to this folder and all subfolders, then click OK.

  5. The folder and subfolders, if selected, display a red asterisk to indicate that the folder contents are encrypted.

  6. To remove encryption, right-click the encrypted folder and click Encrypt Contents to clear the check box.

  7. If the folder you selected has subfolders, a confirmation message appears. Specify whether to Apply changes to this folder only or Apply changes to this folder and all subfolders, then click OK.

The asterisk is removed from the folder and subfolders, if selected.
