[access-uk] Re: Silent logon

Hi,

No it's not the key fob type, although the company does use those for
the select few who work at home.
The system requires three codes before it will allow the system to boot
up, in order to protect the hard drive contents.
Then more codes are required, which once JAWS has started, is no
problem.

At the moment, the only solution is for someone else to tell me what the
system displays, or get a KNFB reader!

Cheers

Dave

Is this one of those fantastically inaccessible key fob security
solutions? If so, we have a solution here at work ... And am aware of a
secondary software solution too. Don't really want to discuss BBC
security on an open list tho so mail me if you're interested.

Have you raised with this with the IT department, there may possibly be
a physical token alternative that may serve as an alternative or so you
only need to enter one password instead of two.  As what you describe
sounds like pre-boot encryption there are not many solutions to this
because it is before any operating system gets going.

Hi all,

I currently use a desktop PC at work, and I am currently looking into
getting a laptop instead, so I can move to other offices, sites and use
it in meetings and classrooms etc.

One problem that has arisen is that company laptops have an initial,
encrypted logon, which entails entering the asset details and two
passwords, and only when that has been successfully completed, will
Windows boot up, and then yet again another password is required.

The problem being, that until windows boots up, JAWS does not come into
action.  Therefore the initial encrypted logon will have to be done
without JAWS.  On top of this, from time to time, the passwords require
to be changed, so most of the time, it would be possible to operate
blind! ha, but then corrupt the system when the passwords require
changing.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Dave
