7.2 Importing Encryption Keys

You can import keys from a backup or another Management Console. Importing keys from another Management Console allows endpoints managed by this console to read files protected by Data Encryption policies created in the other Management Console. When importing keys, duplicates are ignored. Imported keys become part of your “key set” and do not replace the current common key. All keys are passed down when a new policy is published.

  1. In the Management Console, click Tools, then click Import Encryption Keys.

  2. Browse to or specify the file to be imported.

  3. Specify the password for the encryption key.

  4. Click OK.
