End Point Encryption


The End Point Encryption project is a forthcoming joint initiative from the Endpoint Operations and Services (EOS), The Information Security Office (ISO), and IT Client Services (ITCS) are working to support IS-3 Security policy requiring University devices to be encrypted by July 1, 2020.

The project will define processes to implement the IS-3 Policy's encryption requirements and processes needed to support end-users.

Disk Encryption will be implemented using Microsoft Windows BitLocker on Windows endpoints (Education, Enterprise, and Professional versions) and Apple FileVault 2 on Mac endpoints. Encryption key escrow will be done using Dell Encryption’s management console.

Current Phase

EOS is working with ITCS and Department IT staff to test the Windows and Mac encryption installer from the Self Service application on computers using the campus Berkeley Desktop configuration (managed computers).
