By Ryan LomaxPublished November 02, 2018 09:05:01You’ve probably heard of Network Security key, a key that allows you to encrypt and decrypt the files that you open on your Mac or PC.
It’s a bit like having a key to unlock your wallet or car keys, and you can use it to open and encrypt files that contain sensitive data.
Networks like Dropbox, Microsoft’s OneDrive and others all require the same basic configuration to enable the Network Security service.
However, the service can be configured on Macs or Windows computers.
You can get Network Security on Windows, but it requires installing the same file encryption software that’s installed on your computer.
Here are the steps to get it installed.
Install Network SecurityKeyOn Windows, go to System > Settings > Security > Security Options.
You can also access the security settings on your system using the command line.
Once you’ve finished the installation, restart your computer and open the File Sharing preferences.
On your Mac, open Finder and choose Applications > Utilities.
Open Network Security.
You should see the Network Services > Security tab.
Select Network Security, and select it.
Once the options appear, you’ll be prompted to set a password.
You don’t need to enter a password here.
Select yes to the prompt to begin encrypting files on your PC.
Close the Finder window and open Terminal.
Type in the following command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-key add – sudo apt,security.apt-keys.pubOnce you’re done, your Mac should now be updated to include Network SecurityCore.
Open File Sharing on your Windows machine.
Select File Sharing, and click the icon to the right of Network Services.
Click on Network Security and select Network Security Core.
Your Mac should then automatically download and install the security service.
If you’re on a Mac, you can continue using the File sharing preferences to configure Network Security as well.
