Introduction
®
McAfee File and Removable Media Protection (FRP) 4.3.0 delivers policy-enforced, automatic, and
transparent encryption of files and folders stored or shared on PCs, file servers, emails, and removable
media such as USB drives, CD/DVDs, and ISO files.
FRP is managed by McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) by creating a central point of
management that makes sure the data is safe wherever it goes.
Typical FRP use cases include encrypting files such as spreadsheets and sensitive documents, allowing
access to a specific folder on a shared network, encrypting removable media or blocking the copying
of non-encrypted files, and sending self-extracting files in email attachments to partners or clients.

How FRP works
Features
How FRP works
FRP encrypts files and folders on local drives, network shares, or removable media devices according
to the policies enforced by the administrator using the McAfee ePO server.
FRP supports system and user based policies, and provides a single point of control to protect data in
your environment by integrating with the McAfee ePO server. FRP relies on Microsoft Windows
credentials, so registered domain users and local system users are assigned product policies and
encryption keys.
When the FRP client is installed on a McAfee ePO managed system, the system synchronizes with the
McAfee ePO server and fetches product policies and encryption keys. The FRP client acts like a filter
between the application to create or edit files and removable media. When a file is saved, the FRP
filter executes the assigned policies and encrypts the data, if applicable.
FRP acts as a persistent encryption engine. When a file is encrypted, it remains encrypted even when:
•
The file is moved or copied to another location.
•
The file is moved out of an encrypted directory.
This is applicable only when you are using supported media files.

Introduction
Features
Features
These are the key features of FRP.
8
•
Centralized management — Provides support for deploying and managing FRP using McAfee ePO
software.
•
Windows authentication-based policy enforcement — FRP depends on leverages Microsoft
Windows AD credentials for authentication, so registered domain users and local system users are
assigned product policies and encryption keys.
•
User Personal Key — An unique encryption key is created for each user; administrators can
reference “User Personal Key” generically in policies.
•
Delegated administration through Role Based Key Management — Enables the logical
separation of management between multiple administrators. This capability is critical for separation
across business functions and subsidiaries.
•
Auditing of key management and policy assignments — The key management and policy
assignment-related actions performed by McAfee ePO administrators are recorded in the audit log.
This is critical to ensure compliance and prevent abuse by privileged administrators.
•
Protection of data on removable media — Provides the ability to encrypt removable media and
access encrypted content even on systems where FRP is not installed.
•
Network encryption — Enables secure sharing and collaboration on network shares.
•
User-initiated encryption of files and email attachments — Allows users to create and attach
password‑encrypted executable files that can be decrypted on systems where FRP is not installed.
•
Auditing and reporting for USB removable media and CD/DVD/ISO events — Captures all
end user actions related to USB removable media and CD/DVD/ISO events, with an auditing
capability that provides an effective feedback loop for use by administrators in making policy
decisions.
•
Configurable key cache expiry — Enables the administrator to configure how long a key is
cached on the client before it is removed due to non-connectivity to the McAfee ePO server.
•
Integration with the McAfee tray icon — Consolidates the tray icons into one common McAfee
icon.
•
Migration from EEFF v3.2.x to FRP 4.3.0 — Enables customers to migrate keys from legacy
versions of the product to McAfee ePO-managed versions, with or without level information, with
minimal effort.
•
Use of McAfee Common Cryptographic Module (MCCM) — The FRP client makes use of the
McAfee Core Cryptographic Module (MCCM) User and Kernel FIPS 140-2 cryptographic modules.
FRP provides an option to install the product in FIPS mode. MCCM also provides performance
benefits and, in particular, leverages Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard Instructions (AES NI),
resulting in additional performance improvements on systems with AES NI support.

Manage removable media protection
FRP enables you to encrypt removable USB devices to protect the data stored in the device.
You can view the contents of a removable media device on any supported Windows or Mac OS X client,
without requiring to have any McAfee encryption software installed (otherwise, referred to as "offsite"
access). In addition to enabling secure sharing of data with partners and vendors, this feature also
enables users to carry data securely on USB drives and access it on other computers.
When the removable media device is inserted into the offsite client system, you will be prompted to
enter authentication credentials. After successful authentication, you will be able to access the files on
the device using the McAfee Removable Media Protection application that is available on the
device.
An offsite application is now available for Mac OS X systems for FRP 4.3.
Tasks
•
Initialize removable media on page 15
When you insert a non-protected removable device on a client with FRP installed and the

Managing CD/DVD/ISO media
The McAfee Encryption for CD/DVD/ISO feature enables securely encrypted data to be written to
optical media or ISO images.
Individual files up to 4 GB in size can be placed on an encrypted CD/DVD or ISO image.
Although FRP allows the writing of encrypted files to optical media with the Enforce Encryption (onsite access
only) protection level, subsequent use of these optical media is then restricted to FRP-enabled systems.
Using the McAfee Encryption for CD/DVD/ISO feature allows the creation of media that can be
securely authenticated and accessed by any system with a supported Windows OS, without the need
for the FRP client to be present. This is allowed by both the Allow Encryption (with offsite access) and Enforce
Encryption (with offsite access) protection levels, with the Enforce Encryption (with offsite access) protection level
preventing writing to the optical media by an alternative method.
This feature can also be used to create secure encrypted ISO images of data, for subsequent burning
to optical media or secure offsite back up. Once an ISO is created, it can be securely distributed and
burned using any system that supports normal optical media burning.
For situations where a repeatable encrypted backup of a defined set of data that might change
between backups is needed (for instance, source code folders, transaction records and so on), a
project can be defined identifying the files/folders to be backed up, which can be saved to disk as
an .emo file. The .emo file can then be loaded and run later to create the image, whenever required.
This project file mechanism allows you to create a sophisticated mapping between the source data and
the eventual target media layout. This is flexible enough to allow reorganizing of the target file/ folder
layout, addition of new folders, renaming of target files/folders, and so on, so that the eventual
encrypted media image can be structured as required.
When the encrypted CD/DVD is inserted into a system or the encrypted ISO is mounted on a system
where FRP is not installed, you are prompted for credentials to gain access to the CD/DVD/ISO media.
Successful authentication enables access to the data using the offsite Explorer.

Managing CD/DVD/ISO media
Writing McAfee Encrypted CD/DVD/ISO
The process of writing an encrypted CD/DVD/ISO is performed in a number of stages, based on the
selected parameters.
Creating encrypted image
This stage creates a temporary encrypted image of the selected files and folders. This is done in the
temporary directory of the system as defined by Windows. The availability of sufficient disc space is
verified before image creation.
If files could not be added to the encrypted image, an informational dialog box appears after this
stage, indicating how many files were added and skipped. These are the possible reasons for skipped
files:
•
Source files not available at time of image creation
•
Source files not accessible due to wrong access rights
•
Source files are FRP encrypted, but key not available at time of creation
Writing out ISO image
This stage writes the temporary image to an ISO file at the selected location. If this location is a local
disc, attempts are made to make sure that enough space is available. However, for mapped drive
locations, this check is not performed and available space is assumed.
Burning disc <x> of <y>
This stage appears for each physical copy requested. The sub-stages within this stage include:
1
Waiting for blank <media> or larger (<media> will be the Media Type specified earlier)
2
Burning encrypted image
3
Finalizing media
4
Verifying media (optional sub-stage depending on options selected)
At the end of the process (or after a cancellation from a user), an informational dialog box displays the
status of the operation. At this point, all temporary files are deleted on the system and the user is
returned to the main application.
Working with McAfee Encryption for CD/DVD/ISO projects
When working with McAfee Encryption for CD/DVD/ISO, it is possible to create, save, and open project
files with the .emo extension. These files contain the metadata detailing files and folders to be
included in the encrypted media image to be created.
Project rescan
When an .emo project file is opened (either from within the application or by double-clicking on the
file itself to launch the application), a rescan operation is carried out.
If any of the files or folders specified in the project are not available at the defined source location, a
dialog box prompts you to either delete the missing files/folders from the project, or keep them in the
project, in which case they appear in red in the project view (and are not added to a subsequent
encrypted media image unless available at media creation time).
If any new files or folders are found in source folders already included in the project, a dialog box
prompts the user to either add the new files or folders to the project, or ignore them.
