Full Disk Encryption Connectivity Parent topic

Endpoint Encryption uses a FIPS 140-2 approved encryption process for data passed between the Full Disk Encryption preboot and PolicyServer. Full Disk Encryption agents that have network connectivity to PolicyServer can receive policy updates and upload audit data from the agent. All client-server communications are internally encrypted and can be sent over insecure connections such as the Internet.
Yous can place PolicyServer within a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) for access to both internal networks and the Internet. For information about different network topology configurations, see the Endpoint Encryption Installation and Migration Guide.

Full Disk Encryption Connectivity Requirements

Updated security policies from PolicyServer are sent to the Full Disk Encryption preboot or by connectivity established within Windows, LAN, or VPN.
TCP/IP Access
Network connectivity requires full TCP/IP network access; dial-up or telephone access cannot be used to provide connectivity with PolicyServer during preboot authentication.
Endpoint Encryption agents communicate using port 8080 by default. To change the default port number, go to Recovery Console and update the PolicyServer. For details, see Changing the Full Disk Encryption PolicyServer.
