FileVault 2 Decoded

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the changes that Steve Jobs briefly mentioned in the course of the WWDC 2011 keynote address was that Apple had revamped its FileVault encryption solution for Mac OS X 10.7.x, changing it from encryption that primarily protected your accounts home folder to encryption that protects your whole boot volume. Since that initial announcement, FileVault 2 has evolved into an encryption solution that can be easily managed by both home users and enterprises alike.

This session is going walk though various topics, including information  on how FileVault 2 works, the different kinds of recovery options for FileVault 2, how to use Apple's fdesetup tool for managing FileVault 2 from the command line, and various tips and tricks for better managing this encryption solution.

Key Take Aways:

At the end of this session, the attendees should have the following knowledge:

  • How to set up FileVault 2 for their own use
  • How to build and deploy an institutional recovery key
  • How to use most of the functions of Apple's fdesetup command line management tool for FileVault 2
