FileVault 2 for Mac OS X Decoded Learn by Video

Video Description

FileVault 2 is increasingly becoming the default encryption solution for enterprises that support Macs running OS X. There is not much documentation on this solution, however, and most of what is available focuses on the consumer market. Here to guide the enterprise professional, popular presenter Richard Trouton gives a detailed, one-hour guide to FileVault 2. By the end of the video, you'll know how to set up FileVault 2 for your own use, build and deploy an institutional recovery key, and use the most commonly-used functions of Apple's fdesetup command line management tool. Rich Trouton has been a Macintosh system and server administrator for over fifteen years and has supported Macs in a number of different environments, including university, government, medical research and advertising. His current position is providing support for Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Farm Research Campus in Ashburn, Virginia.
