Slides from the “Managing FileVault 2 on macOS High Sierra” Session at MacAD UK 2018 Conference

For those who wanted a copy of my FileVault 2 management talk at MacAD UK 2018, here are links to the slides in PDF and Keynote format.

Hat tip to the attendee who brought to my attention that fdesetup sync is not supported on encrypted APFS boot drives. I’ve now updated the slides to reflect that it works on macOS High Sierra for HFS+ drives only.

HFS+

    Suppose you have 10.13 laptop with an FV encrypted APFS system disk, you have users that can unlock the container at preboot, but none of those users have a SecureToken. Could you (1) boot that laptop in target mode, (2) connect it to another system where you have a common user with a SecureToken (ie AD user), (3) use one of the IDs on the encrypted APFS container to unlock it, and then (4) use the ID that has a SecureToken on the host computer to grant that APFS volume user a SecureToken on the target disk?

    Hi Rich, Any idea what would happen if I add an institutional recovery key to an already encrypted Mac ?

    Anyone knows if fdesetup authrestart with -inputplist works on APFS or if it’s HFS+ only ? If HFS+ only, is there another way to automate restart of encrypted device on APFS ?
