C2K protects critical data providing Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA) that accepts digital certificates, smart cards or USB tokens as valid user identification. If no acceptable identification is supplied, the boot process is terminated.
Complete physical and/or logical encryption of hard disks and removable media prevents the computer from being booted by alternative means, even if the would-be thief has physical access to the media using a different computer. Users can only access information with permissions: the process is transparent and no change in user behaviour is required.
