This paper provides a complete workflow for administering FileVault on computers with
OS X v10.11.

Activating FileVault disk encryption involves the following steps:

  1. Choose a recovery key.

  2. Create and export an institutional recovery key (for institutional recovery keys only).

  3. Create a disk encryption configuration.

  4. Deploy the disk encryption configuration.

After activating FileVault disk encryption on computers, you can create smart computer groups to use as the basis for performing the following additional tasks:

  • View FileVault information for a computer.

  • Issue a new FileVault recovery key to computers.

  • Enable or disable a local account for FileVault.

  • Enable or disable the management account for FileVault.

  • Access encrypted data.
