    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.

    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.

    Disk protection in Windows Embedded Standard – more than just a useful feature

    **Updated 3/26/09 with preface

    [The following article is authored by one of the Windows Embedded MVPs (Most Valuable Professionals). Our MVPs have a heavy background in Embedded systems and are a great repository of information on Windows Embedded products. We’re providing this space on our team blog as a service to our readers by allowing MVPs to share some of their knowledge with the rest of the community.] 

    Disk protection in Windows Embedded Standard is part of the so called “Embedded Enabling Features” or EEFs. This name describes a group of functionality that, unlike the rest of Standard’s features, is not available in XP Pro SP3 and has been designed specifically to meet the needs of embedded device manufacturers.
    Among all EEFs, disk protection is the most prominent one, because it is able to satisfy unique scenarios that are very common across the vertical markets embedded devices are used in.
