In an email to the Mac Enterprise list, Ed Marczak of Google announced that Google is open sourcing their much heralded FileVault 2 code, once again proving how awesome the Mac team at Google really is:
I’m very happy to announce Cauliflower Vest: a new, open source
product that is an end-to-end Mac OS X FileVault 2 recovery key escrow
solution. In short, this brings missing features that allow you to
better manage FileVault 2 machines.
Cauliflower Vest allows you to:
- Forcefully enable FileVault 2 encryption.
- Automatically escrow recovery keys.
- Delegate secure access to recovery keys so that volumes may be
unlocked or reverted.
If you *just* want to have a command-line tool to enable FV2, that’s
in there, too.
