FileVault 2 has compatibility issues that are bothering me more and more:
- after installation, your ‘Recovery HD’ option disappears from ‘Alt’ boot menu, while still being accessible with Cmd+R. Why ??? It’s quite handy to fix errors - especially since someone explained how to rescue data from a Recovery terminal when the recovery key is available - http://blog.inig-services.com/archives/917
diskutil coreStorage list|grep "Logical Volume"|grep -v Group
diskutil coreStorage revert THIS-UUID -passphrase SECRET-PHRASE
- its data is not easily accessible under Linux, even if some preliminary work has been done - http://eprint.iacr.org/2012/374.pdf
Yet at the moment it is still the easiest way to protect data with OSX. I hope these issues will be resolved someday, and that its source code will be opened to a better security audit.
