Exercise 1 - Configuring Disk Encryption Using BitLocker

Windows BitLocker is a storage encryption technology that gives administrators the capability to secure fixed and removable disks including portable USB drives using encryption services built into the operating system.

BitLocker was first introduced in Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 Enterprise and then carried over to later versions. Disk encryption can be enabled using a local or domain group policy. To unlock an encrypted disk volume, the user must type the password to unlock it. In the event the user forgets the password for unlocking the encrypted volume, the Recovery Keys generated by BitLocker can be used to gain access to the encrypted drive.
