Description

Data encryption policy cmdlets are the Exchange Online part of service encryption with Customer Key in Office 365. For more information, see Controlling your data in Office 365 using Customer Key (https://aka.ms/customerkey).

You can assign a data encryption policy to a mailbox by using the DataEncryptionPolicy parameter on the Set-Mailbox cmdlet in Exchange Online PowerShell.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-DataEncryptionPolicy -Name "US Mailboxes" -AzureKeyIDs "https://contosoWestUSvault01.vault.azure.net/keys/USA_Key_01","https://contosoEastUSvault01.vault.azure.net/keys/USA_Key_02" -Description "Root key for mailboxes located in US territories"

This example creates a data encryption policy named US Mailboxes with the specified Azure Key Vault keys and description.

Required Parameters

-AzureKeyIDs

The AzureKeyIDs parameter specifies the URI values of the Azure Key Vault keys to associate with the data encryption policy. You need to specify at least two Azure Key Vault keys separated by commas. For example, "https://contosoWestUSvault01.vault.azure.net/keys/USA_Key_01","https://contosoEastUSvault01.vault.azure.net/keys/USA_Key_02"

To find the URI value for an Azure Key Vault, replace <ValutName> with the name of the vault, and run this command in Azure Rights Management PowerShell: Get-AzureKeyVaultKey -VaultName <VaultName>).id. For more information, see Get started with Azure Key Vault (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=521402).

Type:MultiValuedProperty
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-Name

The Name parameter specifies the unique name for the data encryption policy. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.
