Is is possible to decrypt an encrypted Time Machine backup with Ubuntu Linux? If so, how?

1 Answer 1


Yes there is a way to mount a FileVault2 encrypted disk under Linux called libfvde, it uses the fuse Filesystem layer, but it is still experimental code.

The project is located here: https://github.com/libyal/libfvde

If you are interested in the detailed analysis of FileVault2 which lead to this implementation look here: http://eprint.iacr.org/2012/374.pdf
