Dedicated encryption keys | Common questions

Before enabling dedicated encryption keys, see Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise security overview or Adobe Document Cloud security.

To upgrade your plan to include storage and services, contact your Adobe Account Manager.

Adobe is updating dedicated encryption on the Admin console from directory-level to organization-level encryption. Currently, when you enable encryption for a directory, the assets of users of that directory are encrypted. Going forward, when you enable encryption on the Admin console, assets of all users in the organization would be encrypted.

Adobe is updating dedicated encryption on the Admin console from directory-level to organization-level encryption. Currently, you can revoke encryption for a directory. Going forward, when you will revoke encryption on the Admin console at the organization level.

The following data is not encrypted using the dedicated encryption key and is therefore not affected if the key is revoked:

  • Metadata (file name, collection name, font use, MIME type, and other attributes necessary to browse a collection)
  • Videos published by Adobe Voice
  • Lightroom photos
  • Colors that are stored by the Adobe Color service
  • All data that is managed by the Behance and Adobe Font services
  • All data managed by the Marketing Cloud
  • Saved application preferences
  • Information about the account holder such as name, email, licenses, and other basic user account information.
  • Data of members of an organization with an Adobe ID account (unless the user is collaborating on content when Enterprise ID or Federated ID users initiated the collaboration)
Note:

So as to provide benefits such as enterprise storage and other enterprise-level features, we are migrating all existing Adobe IDs to Business IDs. All new business customers will use Business IDs for their team members.

You'll receive advance communication when your organization is scheduled for this upgrade. For more information, see Introduction to Business IDs and new storage features. Until your organization is migrated, you will continue to use Adobe ID type to access the organization. Support for Adobe IDs will then be reserved for individual customers only.

No, standard encryption keys will not be used. The user will not be able to upload data because no valid key is present.
