libfvde is a library to access FileVault Drive Encryption (FVDE) (or FileVault2) encrypted volumes.

The FVDE format is used by Mac OS X, as of Lion, to encrypt data on a storage media volume.

Project information:

* Status: experimental
* Licence: LGPLv3+

Supported FileVault2 implementations:

* Mac OS X Lion (10.7)
* Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
* Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9)
* Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10)
* Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11)

Supported encryption volume types:

* removable media volume - with encrypted context (initial support as of 20121113 version)
* system volume

Supported protection methods:

* password
* recovery password
* VMK key data (as of 20121114 version)

Work in progress:

* DEFLATE compressed XML plist
* removable media volume - without encrypted context
* removable media volume - decrypted
* extend CoreStorage volume support
* partial encrypted volumes

Planned:

* Dokan support
