Introduction
ProtectTools Security Manager
ProtectTools Security Manager software provides security
features that help protect against unauthorized access to the
computer, networks, and critical data. Enhanced security
functionality is provided by the following software modules:
■
Smart Card Security for ProtectTools
■
Embedded Security for ProtectTools
■
BIOS Configuration for ProtectTools
■
Credential Manager for ProtectTools
The software modules available for your computer may vary
depending on your model. For example, Embedded Security for
ProtectTools requires that the Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
embedded security chip (select models only) be installed on your
computer, and Smart Card Security for ProtectTools requires an
optional smart card and reader.
ProtectTools software modules may be preinstalled, preloaded,
or available for download from the HP Web site. Visit
http://www.hp.com for more information.

For ProtectTools, the security duties and privileges can be
divided into the following roles:

Security officer—Defines the security level for the company
or network and determines the security features to deploy,
such as smart cards, biometric readers, or USB tokens.

HP. For more information, visit http://www.hp.com.
■
IT administrator—Applies and manages the security features
defined by the security officer. Can also enable and disable
some features. For example, if the security officer has
decided to deploy smart cards, the IT administrator can
enable smart card BIOS security mode.
■
User—Uses the security features. For example, if the security
officer and IT administrator have enabled smart cards for the
system, the user can set the smart card PIN and use the card
for authentication.

by passwords. The following table lists the commonly used
passwords, the software module where the password is set, and
the password function.
The passwords that are set and used by IT administrators only are
indicated in this table as well. All other passwords may be set by

Creating a Secure Password
When creating passwords, you must first follow any
specifications that are set by the program. In general, however,
consider the following guidelines to help you create strong
passwords and reduce the chances of your password being
compromised:
■
Use passwords with more than 6 characters, preferably more
than 8.
■
Mix the case of letters throughout your password.
■
Whenever possible, mix alphanumeric characters and include
special characters and punctuation marks.
■
Substitute special characters or numbers for letters in a
key word. For example, you can use the number 1 for letters
I or L.
■
Combine words from 2 or more languages.
■
Split a word or phrase with numbers or special characters in
the middle, for example, “Mary2-2Cat45.”
■
Do not use a password that would appear in a dictionary.
■
Do not use your name for the password, or any other personal
information, such as birth date, pet names, or mother's
maiden name, even if you spell it backwards.

■
Change passwords regularly. You might change only a couple
of characters that increment.
■
If you write down your password, do not store it in a
commonly visible place very close to the computer.
■
Do not save the password in a file, such as an e-mail, on your
computer.
■
Do not share accounts or tell anyone your password.

Basic Concepts
Smart Card Security for ProtectTools manages the smart card
setup and configuration for computers equipped with an optional
smart card reader.
With Smart Card Security, you can
■
Access smart card security features.
■
Initialize a smart card so that it can be used with other
ProtectTools modules, such as Credential Manager for
ProtectTools.
■
Work with the Computer Setup utility to enable smart card
authentication in a preboot environment, and to configure
separate smart cards for an administrator and a user. This
requires a user to insert the smart card and optionally enter
a PIN prior to allowing the operating system to load.
■
Set and change the password used to authenticate users of
the smart card.
■
Back up and restore smart card BIOS passwords stored on the
smart card.

card data from one smart card to another smart card. This file can
also be used to back up the original smart card or to restore the
data when a smart card is lost or stolen.
Ä
CAUTION: To avoid having a recovery file that does not match a smart
card with updated information, immediately create a new recovery file
and store it in a safe place. If you keep a backup smart card, you must
also update the information on the backup smart card by restoring the
new recovery file onto the backup smart card.

You can restore the smart card data from the recovery file. This is
especially useful if a card was lost or stolen, or if you want to
create a backup smart card. If you use a card with previous data
saved on it, the data will be overwritten.
Before you begin, you will need the following:
■
Access to a computer with Smart Card Security software
installed
■
Smart card recovery file
■

To create a replacement smart card with a randomly generated
smart card password:
»
Insert a smart card into the reader, and then load the
appropriate recovery file onto it. For more information, refer
to “Restoring Smart Card Data,” earlier in this chapter.
To create a replacement smart card with a manually generated
smart card password:
1. Initialize a new smart card. For instructions, refer to

Embedded Security for ProtectTools
The TPM embedded security chip enhances and enables other
ProtectTools Security Manager security features. For example,
Credential Manager for ProtectTools can use the embedded chip
as an authentication factor when the user logs on to Windows.
On select models, the TPM embedded security chip also enables
enhanced BIOS security features accessed through BIOS
Configuration for ProtectTools.
Setup Procedures
Ä
CAUTION: To reduce security risk, it is highly recommended that your
IT administrator immediately initialize the embedded security chip.
Failure to initialize the embedded security chip could result in an
unauthorized user, a computer worm, or a virus taking ownership of the
computer and gaining control over the owner tasks, such as handling
the emergency recovery archive, and configuring user access settings.
Follow the steps in the following 2 sections to enable and
initialize the embedded security chip.
Enabling the Embedded Security Chip
The embedded security chip must be enabled in the Computer
Setup utility. This procedure cannot be performed in BIOS
Configuration for ProtectTools.
To enable the embedded security chip:
1. Open Computer Setup by turning on or restarting the
computer, and then pressing f10 while the “F10 = ROM
Based Setup” message is displayed in the lower-left corner
of the screen.
2. If you have not set an administrator password, use the arrow
keys to select Security > Administrator password, and then
press enter.
3. Type your password in the New password and Verify new
password boxes, and then press f10.

Initializing the Embedded Security Chip
In the initialization process for Embedded Security, you will
■
Set an owner password for the embedded security chip that
protects access to all owner functions on the embedded
security chip.
■
Set up the emergency recovery archive, which is a protected
storage area that allows reencryption of the Basic User Keys
for all users.
To initialize the embedded security chip:
1. Right-click the Embedded Security icon in the notification
area, at the far right of the taskbar, and then select
Embedded Security Initialization. The ProtectTools
Embedded Security Initialization Wizard opens.

■
Only files and folders on NTFS partitions can be encrypted.
Files and folders on FAT partitions cannot be encrypted.
■
System files and compressed files cannot be encrypted, and
encrypted files cannot be compressed.
■
Temporary folders should be encrypted, because they are
potentially of interest to hackers.
■
A recovery policy is automatically set up when you encrypt a
file or folder for the first time. This policy ensures that if you
lose your encryption certificates and private keys, you will be
able to use a recovery agent to decrypt your data.

The token is saved either on the computer hard drive or in the
Windows registry. When you log on with a virtual token, you are
asked for a user PIN to complete the authentication.
To create a new virtual token:
1. Select Start > All Programs > HP ProtectTools Security
Manager > Credential Manager.
2. Click My Identity.
3. Under I Want To, click More, and then click Register
Credentials.
4. Click Next.
5. Click Virtual Token, and then click Next.

7. Enter a name and location for the virtual token file (or
click the Browse button to find a file location), and then
click Next.
8. Set and confirm a master PIN and a user PIN.
9. Click Finish.
