Actually I asked after some success because I thought it would benefit everyone ;-) Here is the complete process. Some links are missing because I don't have enough reputation to embed them all. Sorry about that. High-level, we "just" need dislocker. But to install it, there are some dependencies to resolve... we need: "Fuse for OS X" Simply download ...

It is most certainly a bug that needs to be addressed in future versions of OS X. I have the same problem and have found out the following curiosities: When I added a rule to change the color of encrypted emails to give at least a visual indication in the list view, it worked fine, so there's really no reason not to show the lock icon.

When a wipe occurs, the file system key is deleted. It's as simple as that. Page 11 of the September 2015 iOS Security White Paper states that the file system key is stored in NAND. The metadata of all files in the file system is encrypted with a random key, which is created when iOS is first installed or when the device is wiped by a user. The file ...

As a proof of concept, I formatted a USB Thumb-drive using a GUID Partition Map and formatted it Mac OS Extended (Journaled) naming it "Encrypted". Then in Finder, I selected the disk named "Encrypted" and control-clicked selecting Encrypt "Encrypted"..., while setting its password to "password". When it was done encrypting, using Terminal, I ascertained ...
