LinuxConf.Au: Disk encryption for linux

This talk will look at the different disk encryption mechanisms available today, and how they can be integrated in your personal, and work environment. Namely:

  • disk encryption options available
  • worrying about security, and encryption robustness
  • weakest point of entry
  • encrypting a separate partition
  • making encryption as seemless to the user as possible (single password with pam)
  • encrypting an entire laptop
  • booting from an encrypted password with initramfs
  • recovering from the command line
