FileVault or VileFault?
Here is what I used:. Replace names in the vvilefault two lines or rename your images accordingly. Comments Comments are closed. Alternatively, in the Terminal:.
Recover/repair a corrupt aes-encrypted sparse image (or File Vault) on Mac OS X
You can contact me instead. They are compiled as stated above, from the original sources, without any modification:.
To do this, the best thing is to write a script in perl, php, or a program in C, which reads your hard drive partition device the one containing the broken image, e.
The source download includes two programs, vfcrack vilefailt vfdecrypt. I’m start to look into more secure ways to store sensitive data, and Apple’s encrypted DMG disk images seem like a good compromise between security and convenience. If I’m not mistaken—and being an AOLperson that is always a possibility—you don’t actually have the trillion years of protection that Apple’s hyperbole-loving marketing department tosses out there blithely.
If gilefault find it, try to copy that block back to a file best on another device, to avoid overwriting it. Here is what I used: Or even smarter, as G. LLC, makers of Knoxhits the high points of the conference, which can also be found in a PDF document that was obviously not produced with Keynote, along with tools for “analyzing” FileVault. If the computer freezes, or you have a power interruption, and mac os x fails to write this down to the disk, you lose the most important piece of information.
So 32c3 advice is: I just put together the results for the purpose of recovering my stuff and hopefully, that of others too. Nonetheless, it appears that the conclusion at 23C3 is that FileVault is relatively secure, provided it is used correctly. If you have no backup 23cc3 from which to restore the vilefauot, there is some chance to find these on the free space of your hard disk. For the latter whether it is an image or a real diskthere’s no better tool than Disk Warrior.
23C3: Unlocking FileVault
If you’re worried about long-term storage and retrievability it of course has the disadvantage of being a proprietary format, which means you would need an OS X machine to decrypt those disk images. Using vfdecrypt I could successfully decrypt an encrypted. If You have “my computer” icon in the Finder prefs activated, you will vulefault it there.
This would include using secure virtual memory and disabling 23v3 sleep” for now. As You can see from the above, both headers have a string to recognize them: 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.
Recover/repair a corrupt AES-128 encrypted sparse image
But see below, on how to seek your hard disk for a lost header. Because AES encryption is not just your passphrase molded into your data. There is an easy way to check if Your image has the header at the beginning or at the end:. Just because a little header is gone all my data gone?! This article presents a solution for situations in which an encrypted sparseimage such as file vault gets corruptedand you happen to have an older backup of that same image or have the skills to look for a lost header – see below.
If you don’t have an older backup, you have really bad luck. They neglected to ship a makefile for vfdecrypt, but it’s really straightforward to compile. 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.
I’ve seen that sometimes, Vilecault OS X actually mounts an image but doesn’t show the volume in the Finder or on the desktop don’t know why. The former implements a brute force dictionary attack against.
They provide slides and source code of their “vilefault” tools at crypto.
