I asked my IT department a question today and may have opened pandora's
I've been allowed to run Fedora on my company laptop for a couple of
years now. I am using a personal hard drive for Fedora that way if I
needed to I could put the original Windows drive back in and access what
ever I needed.
I haven't used my Windows drive in over a year now and it's causing some
issues with corporate AD and the anti-virus. So I requested installing
windows in a VirtualBox and having corporate IT join it to the domain,
install av, office suite, and the other stuff I may need but likely
never will use, and then I can easily boot it once a week to keep my av
up to date.
The response was that our insurance requires the use of Bitlocker.
Their potential solution is to partition the drive to have Windows and
Linux but both be encrypted with Bitlocker so they could access the
drive contents should I ever leave or die or what ever...
I realize encrypting the linux partition with bitlocker is not likely
ever going to happen (right?) but are there corporate linux systems that
allow IT access to encrypted volumes like Bitlocker and AD?
I feel dirty even asking this. Doesn't this defeat the entire purpose of
encryption to begin with? ugh... I guess it makes sense, but it sounds
like inferior by design.
