One thing that is befuddling...


Joe Consumer hardly cares about an encrypted disk. It is a neat feature but lets face it, those that really have to have it are the people who work for or work with the government... and the government demands that the crypto is NIST certified FIPS compliant for storge of sensitive data.


From reading this, there is nothing here that says that if a disk is encrypteed with FileVault 2, that it is using NIST certified crypto.  This is the big white elephant in the middle of the room.
