Apple “Best Practices for Deploying FileVault 2″ white paper now available

Apple released a new white paper this week, dealing with best practices for deploying FileVault 2. The white paper covers FileVault 2 on Lion, so there’s no information covering fdesetup, but it provides a ton of detail that’s relevant for FileVault 2 on both 10.7.x and 10.8.x. For me, Appendix B of this paper was particularly interesting because it provides details of the process that happens between the user hitting the power button and getting access to their desktop.

If you’re planning a FileVault 2 rollout, or you want to get a really good look on what’s going on under FileVault 2’s hood, I recommend checking it out.

    Thanks for the post. I found the discussion about the password being stored in EFI during standby mode very informative, in fact, it surprisingly gives a command for destroying it. #pmset destroyfvkeyonstandby 1
