Open Firmware Password

Version: 1.0.2 || Release Date: 2006-07-10 || License: Freeware Developer: Apple | App Owner: akurtz

A must for security-conscious users!

Setting the Open Firmware password with the OFP utility prevents unauthorized users from starting up the computer from a volume other than the one you have chosen as the startup disk. The password is required to boot from an external FireWire disk, a CD-ROM drive, or another partition or disk inside the computer.

NOTE: For 10.3.9 and earlier ONLY! 10.4 and later, copy the OFP tool from /Applications/Utilities/ on the install DVD.

Does NOT fully support the new EFI firmware of Intel Macs. Some have reported that a password can be set, but it cannot be changed or removed -- use caution!
