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.
