  An Unencrypted Look at FileVault
Subject:   Vault and the swapfile

The truly paranoid in the Unix world :) worry about the virtual memory system that copies memory to disc when real memory runs out.


I've always figured that File Vault doesn't address this question. Sure the original key-corporate document is encrypted, but if you edit it with Word, chances are that at least bits of it are copied in clear-text to the swap file.


Is Apple looking to address this, for the truly paranoid :)
