We are thrilled to announce the open source release of Cauliflower Vest, a solution that we’ve developed to automate enabling FileVault 2 and escrowing recovery tokens.
Come fa un amministratore di sistema a costringere tanti utenti a fare una salvaguardia cifrata dei loro dati? Google mette a disposizione Cauliflower Vest, che fa una copia sullo spazio Google Apps
FileVault 2 is a major, welcome addition to Mac OS X starting with Lion, as full disk encryption is an important part of securing your computer and its data. While the new FileVault 2 offering is very well suited to consumers, some enterprises may require additional features that are not provided out of the box. For example, FileVault 2 encryption is initiated voluntarily by users, lacks enforcement, and, by default, escrows recovery keys to Apple’s central server. It also relies on individual Apple IDs, which cannot be managed as a group.
Cauliflower Vest bridges these feature gaps by allowing enterprise Mac admins to:
This release includes a GUI client to easily enable encryption, an escrow service, and a web UI for management. Also provided is a standalone CLI tool to automatically initiate encryption and generate a recovery key without requiring any user actions.
- Forcibly enable FileVault 2 encryption.
- Automatically escrow recovery keys to a secure Google App Engine server.
- Securely access recovery keys so that volumes may be unlocked or reverted.

Ma dopo la perdita di credibilità che sta subendo Google ultimamente... vi fidate ancora a sufficienza di Google?
