I’ve created a short video showing how to attack OS X Lion with FileVault2 enabled using my tool, Inception.

In the video, I attack a fully patched Mac OS X Lion machine with full-disk encryption enabled (FileVault2), while the machine is powered on and a user is logged in. Using Inception, I am able to dump the memory of the target, and use strings and grep to find the FileVault2 password.

If you are curious to understand ho this works, see my post from a couple a weeks ago, or download the tool and try for yourself.

I’m sorry about the low quality, my media codec-fu is apparently weak today… I’ll post more videos showcasing other features of Inception soon. Stay tuned!
