Abstract

See full text

A technique is provided for acquiring security domain access credentials on a computing device. The security domain access credentials are acquired by storing a persistent identity on the computing device, and deriving data that includes the security domain access credentials from the persistent identity. The derived data is transferred to a security domain to allow the computing device to join the security domain.
