coolfire666 Posted August 6, 2007 Share Posted August 6, 2007 After the section on truecrypt a while back, me and a friend of mine started thinking what else we could do with it. As should be obvious from the topic title, we've (well, mostly him to be honest) have figured how to entirely encrypt your Linux system. Some quick questions that might spring to mind: Q: Isn't that really slow? A: It's a little slower of course, but hardly noticeable. Q: How does it boot from an encrypted drive? A: /var isn't encrypted, that holds all the needed stuff until we can mount the encrypted partition. Q: So when do we mount the encrypted partition? A: During boot, I can't say when exactly, because I never paid attention to it :P (I'll add a note when I do) Q: What about using a hidden volume? A: In the guide, a hidden volume is used by default Q: Do I need to be a Linux wizz to make this work? A: No, all the tricky bits have been scripted, and the guide is into detail. Q: What Linux distributions has this been tested on? A: Ubuntu 7. x and Debian 4. Q: I have another question! Where do I turn? A: Here there's always loads of people that can help, join the Hak,5 IRC or my irc ddg. us. tddirc. net #hackerthreads (sorry, spam) Both me and foldingstock (the main developer) frequent that channel. Well, with out further delay (cause there's been quite enough already) Here's the link to the guide: (I'll copy the whole thing over to the forums if need be. ) http://theowned.org/news.php?item.30.5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
