ProtectKeyWithPassphrase method of the Win32_EncryptableVolume class

The ProtectKeyWithPassphrase method of the Win32_EncryptableVolume class uses the passphrase to obtain the derived key. After the derived key is calculated, the derived key is used to secure the encrypted volume's master key.

Syntax


uint32 ProtectKeyWithPassphrase(
  [in, optional]  string FriendlyName,
  [in]            string Passphrase,
  [out]           string VolumeKeyProtectorID
);

Parameters

FriendlyName [in, optional]

Type: string

A string that specifies a user-assigned string identifier for this key protector. If this parameter is not specified, a blank value is used.

Passphrase [in]

Type: string

A string that specifies the passphrase.

VolumeKeyProtectorID [out]

Type: string

A string that uniquely identifies the created key protector.

If the drive supports hardware encryption and BitLocker has not taken band ownership, the ID string is set to "BitLocker" and the key protector is written to per band metadata.

Return value

Type: uint32

This method returns one of the following codes or another error code if it fails.
