Using a Stored Value token in Drive Encryption

A Stored Value token supported in Drive Encryption stores some token data on the token itself. You must initialize these tokens with Drive Encryption before you can use them for authentication. The token needs to contain the necessary token data to allow successful authentication of the user.

The Stored Value token is initialized the first time the user logs on to the Pre-Boot environment or the Windows authentication page. Drive Encryption, primarily the Pre-Boot environment, is responsible for initializing the token. The initialization process does not require access to the Active Directory.
