  • Need help with case study on EFS Key Archival

    I am trying to put together a case study comparing the benefits and detriments of the following 3 technologies. EFS Key Archival, EFS certificate on a smart card and Credential Roaming. I am hoping someone might be able assist me with information or experiences thay have concerning them. I have been able to find some information on these, however most of it is on how to implement them. Not the benefits of using one over the other.
    Any help is greatly appreciated
    Thanks
    Chris
