Technical Solution


Currently there is no way to automatically sync the Whole Disk Encryption passphrase when the password is reset through active directory.

This request was made to create medium where a remote utility can be used to to reset the password for an encrypted disk if the domain password is reset from remote.

The goal is to reset the users Active Directory (Windows) password via automation and then also sync to the users PGP passphrase in so that when the customer logs back in they will be able login with the new passphrase after a single call to their IT department.
