FileVault Lite
Authored by: peragrin on Oct 03, '07 12:32:10PM

I do this now. my only difference is that I use a 200mb image size.

A side effect. If you store files in the sparse image, that image doesn't need to be accessed before hand. OS X will attempt to mount the volume (asking for the password) and then let the file load.

my primary application I use with this was a shareware app called MacJournal. macjournal entries themselves can be encrypted. I set the app to save files, and settings on the mounted sparseimage. now whenever the app is launched OS X asks for the password as it mounts the image file. once mounted the application loads normally.

This gives me decent security(two different passwords & two different kinds of encryption) for my passwords yet I can still access that information in under 60 seconds.

I have tried this with several other apps, as long as OS X knows the file is located on the sparseimage it will attempt to mount it whenever the application calls for it.
