Encrypt almost any disk in Mountain Lion
Authored by: Waffles on Aug 01, '12 05:25:15AM

You can use the command line to do lots of stuff with encrypted CoreStorage volumes that you can't do with Disk Utility, such as see the progress of drive encryption operations and modify/add/delete partitions on an encrypted volume. The relevant commands begin with "diskutil cs" or "diskutil coreStorage" (without the quotes, of course). See this page for a nice rundown of what's currently possible: http://blog.fosketts.net/2011/08/05/undocumented-corestorage-commands/
