Is it possible to use syskey in combination with Secure Auto Logon (SAL) from Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption ?


Yes it is possible. But SAL does not prefill the password field of the syskey function.

This password must be entered manually and after that SAL will work as expected to. The logon to the operating system will be done by SAL without user interaction.
