    BitLocker in Windows Embedded Standard 2011

    In this blog article I will be talking about a new security feature in Windows Embedded Standard 2011 (“Quebec”). This security feature has been part of Windows Operating System since Vista timeframe. I will touch upon the usefulness of this feature. The main idea of this article is to go over the procedure of adding this package to your image and using it afterwards.

    BitLocker in Windows Embedded Standard 2011 – Overview

    Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption (BitLocker) is a new security feature that provides better data protection for your device by encrypting all data stored on the Windows Embedded Standard 2011 operating system volume. BitLocker allows an admin of a machine to encrypt volumes to protect data contained on them.

    Big Data and Charlie Brown

    Posted By Valerie Olague
    Americas Business Group Lead

    Only animal lovers could understand the bond I have with my dog, Charlie Brown, a pit bull/Chow mix that I found as a stray dog roaming my neighborhood eight years ago. My friends make fun of the human characteristics I attribute to Charlie, but those of us who believe in books such as The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein know that our companions are more than just pets. 

    So when Charlie developed a cyst on his back last month, I didn’t hesitate to pay for surgery to remove it. The veterinary clinic offered to throw in a free dental cleaning while he was under anesthesia and so it goes that during this cleaning, they found that Charlie had melanoma inside of his mouth. It turns out that the Chow genes that help color Charlie’s tongue purple also contributes to a higher rate of melanoma in canines.

    Posted By Robert Peterson
    Sr. Product Manager

    I recently posted about devices and the cloud and now want to delve deeper into how cloud computing can help OEMs drive new solutions for their business and help their customers.

    So let’s look at three scenarios involving Data Analytics, Services and Solutions

    Regenerating Answer File from an Existing Device Using PkgScn and TAP

    While the typical development scenario for Windows Embedded Standard 7 is to first create an Answer File in Image Configuration Editor (ICE) and then deploy that to a device, it is also possible to do the reverse and generate an Answer File from an existing device.

    There are several cases where this is useful:

    • The original Answer File has been lost
    • Updates have been installed directly to the device (through Windows Update or manually), and you would like to replicate the configuration (including all updates) to install to other devices
