Displaying Synchronized Encryption policies on endpoints

SafeGuard Enterprise offers the command-line tool ShowSyncEncPolicyn.exe for displaying Synchronized Encryption policies currently applied on an endpoint.

You always have to run the tool in the proper user context. For example, running the tool as administrator on user A's endpoint will not display the correct policies for user A.

It displays:
  • the application list. It contains all applications for which file encryption is executed automatically (In-Apps).

  • a list of file extensions that are considered by initial encryption and Asynchronous Encryption.

  • the encryption rules for Synchronized Encryption. They contain the paths where files are encrypted or excluded from encryption and the appropriate keys.

Parameters

You can call ShowSyncEncPolicyn.exe with the following parameters:

ShowSyncEncpolicyn.exe [-h] [-A] [-a] [-e] [-d]

  • Parameter -h displays the help.

  • Parameter -A displays the application list, file extensions, and encryption rules.

  • Parameter -a displays the application list.

  • Parameter -e displays file extensions.

  • Parameter -d displays encryption rules.
