If you don’t have an older backup, you have really bad luck. This function generates the bit key needed using your passphrase.
The inverse is true for “encrcdsa”, version 2, i. The new format version 2 introduced with Mac OS X Skip to main content Among the topics discussed at the 23rd Chaos Communication Congress was FileVault, the encryption technology in OS X 23v3 might be described as “security for the rest of us.
The solution for this is: Make sure you click the checkbox “securely erase”.
john-users – Re: FileVault?
With version 1 of the header, at every change of the image, the “header” has to be re-appended to the end of the file. Alternatively, in the Terminal:. Here is what I used: This would include using secure virtual memory and disabling “safe sleep” for now.
LLC, makers of Knoxhits the high points of the conference, which can also be found in a PDF viefault that was obviously not produced with Keynote, along with tools for “analyzing” FileVault. Another good source of information on mounted disks is Disk Utility.
I just put together the results for the purpose of recovering my stuff and hopefully, that of others too.
Of course, what’s not said about FileVault, both in terms of how it works and potential issues, is less accessible. Replace names in the first two lines or rename your images accordingly. As two readers have been reporting thanx to Pietro and G.
Besides that, it appears the biggest vulnerability of FileVault comes from poor password choice, a glossary being the best attack vector. For the latter whether it is an image or a real diskthere’s no better tool than Disk Warrior.
You can counter-Check it with the following:.
Security of Mac Keychain, Filevault
You can contact me instead. Be sure to seek to the position where you found the string, minus Of course, whether or not it’s a good idea to base encryption on a technology vulnerable to the inelegant dismounting of a disk image, such as during a power outage, is another discussion, one best had with a UPS and battery backup.
They neglected to ship a makefile for vfdecrypt, but it’s really straightforward to compile. There is an easy way to check if Your image has the header at the beginning or at the end:. I’m posting here also the binaries ppc and intel for vfdecrypt, in case you don’t have gcc installed.
Might be useful for You, too:.
Recover/repair a corrupt aes-encrypted sparse image (or File Vault) on Mac OS X
The former implements a brute force dictionary attack against. 23f3 assuming the name ” WorkingBackup. Using vfdecrypt I could successfully decrypt an encrypted. The case handled here is: If you vliefault it, try to copy that block back to a file best on another device, vilefaylt avoid overwriting it. In one of the interesting talks I missed during last year’s 23C3 while being busy doing other things Jacob Appelbaum, Ralf-Philipp Weinmann and David Hulton presented their successful attempt to reverse-engineer the file format.
Among the topics discussed at the 23rd Chaos Communication Congress was FileVault, the encryption technology in OS X which might be described as “security for the rest of us.
Without even vilefaul possibility to repair it somehow!? So my advice is: Please note by “corrupt image” I don’t mean necessarily “corrupt filesystem” which may additionally be the case, but it is only indirectly handled here. The Key, the salt, the iv initialization vector and other info are stored into the image header, a 4kb block, which is in turn encrypted using 3DES-EDE.
But this actually happens only for new images. In fact, I believe that if the header of a version 2 image has been corrupted or deleted, most probably you’ll also have to reconstruct more of the image, that is, the partition map for example.
