[Solved] How to use dislocker to read/mount Bitlocker encrypted volume in Mac OSX?

Dislocker - FUSE driver to read/write BitLocker encrypted volume in Mac OSX/Linux. Dislocker is a tool to decrypt BitLocker encrypted volume from OSX or Linux developed by Romain Coltel. Dislocker uses a fuse based mechanism to decrypt the volume and mount it so that the user can access (read or write) the files within the volume. Note that this is not a brute force mechanism or hack; the user still needs to provide a valid BEK file (startup key) or numerical key or FVEK (Full Volume Encryption Key) or recovery password or user password for the decryption. Dislocker requires the PolarSSL library to work.
