Re: FileVault Security Compromised with Compressed Air

I believe the correct solution to the problem of latent encryption key “fingerprints” in RAM is to obfuscate them when going to sleep or shutting down. That could be done by writing over them.

Read Glenn Fleishman’s article in TidBITS for an overview of this situation. Though I don’t agree with his authentication suggestion.
