Environment

McAfee Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders (EEFF) 4.1

Summary

This article provides corrections to the following:
  • Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 4.1 Product Guide (PD24182)
  • Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 4.1 Migration Guide (PD24184)
  • Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders 4.1 Help extension

Problem 1

Documentation mistake:
The EEFF 4.1 Product Guide, EEFF 4.1 Migration Guide, and the Help extension incorrectly state that the minimum version of McAfee Agent (MA) to be used with EEFF 4.1 is MA 4.6 Patch 2.


Documentation correction:
The correct minimum version of MA required with EEFF 4.1 is MA 4.6 Release to World (build 1694).

This mistake has been corrected in the following (EN-US only):
  • PD24428EEFF 4.1 Patch 1 Product Guide
  • PD24429EEFF 4.1 Patch 1 Migration Guide 
  • The Help extension has also been corrected (EN-US only).
NOTE: The localized versions have been corrected in EEFF 4.2.

Problem 2

Documentation mistake:
Appendix A of the EEFF 4.1 Product Guide states the following incorrect information:
Key caching
Try to make use of the encryption key caching feature. This might not be possible due to security
reasons. However, considering this option for any encryption key created will help reduce the
communication payload on the McAfee Agent to McAfee ePO.

Documentation correction:
In EEFF 4.x, you cannot configure Key Caching in the same way as in EEFF 3.2.x. In EEFF 4.x, the following apply:
  • Key caching depends on policies.
  • Key caching is always enabled.
  • The policy cache has a lifetime of 90 days without interactive logon/McAfee Agent policy enforcement.
