What does one do for encyption for the Surface Pro?
With a traditional hard drive one can use Truecypt to encrypt a hard drive or data. What does one do for this critter for encryption?
You can use Bitlocker to encrypt all your drives. I'm using it to encrypt my SDXC card.
Additionaly you can enable the TPM chip on your Surface Pro. This increases security in case you lose your Surface Pro.
Just be sure to save the key files for Bitlocker and TPM in a secure place.
The TPM chip in the surface is always enabled. I enabled bitlocker on the SSD but skipped it on the SD card since I only store media on it.
I'm using BestCrypt Volume Encryption to encrypt both my C: drive and the MicroSDXC card.
I use bitlocker. Built-in tool with Wn 8
Do you see any performance decrease by encrypting your SSD?
I haven't seen any perf impact. It's as speedy as ever.
I definitely do not notice any performance degradation whatsoever.
I use Truecrypt containers. Does anyone know if Truecrypt whole-disk encryption works on this?
If anyone uses TrueCrypt let us know if and how good it works
Use Truecrypt. It works fine.
