How It Works of the Security Features

Previous  Next

The bootmanager BootStar does not protect your partitions but your bootprofiles. The principle applied is the same as for the distribution of rights on the Internet. There too passwords are required when registering, with these passwords then referencing certain various resources.

 

Thus, it follows that if you want to protect a partition on your computer, you have to protect all those bootprofiles with a password that contain these partitions.

 

In some cases, a bootprofile is created solely for the system administrator. Such a bootprofile should be hidden completely. It will be displayed only after a specific key combination (hot key) has been pressed. This function may be activated separately for each bootprofile.

 

You should definitely protect the bootmanager BootStar itself with a password, so that none of the users can view or even change the settings after downloading the program (from the Internet).
