How secure is the encryption offered by ubuntu (using the disk utility)? What algorithm is used underneath it? If someone could at least provide a link to some documentation or article regarding that ...
Unfortunately, TrueCrypt may have been discontinued yesterday. I use LUKS on Linux, but I liked the fact that with TrueCrypt I had a portable solution across Windows, Mac, & Linux. TrueCrypt ...
I'm looking for recommended options for cryptsetup to create fully encrypted SSD (SanDisk SSD U100 128GB), which achive: Timing O_DIRECT disk reads: 1476 MB in 3.00 seconds = 491.81 MB/sec Timing ...
I'm about to encrypt two of my hard drives using LUKS, since I can't really do it myself I use the guide on the Arch Linux wiki (which can be found here). In an example in the guide the cipher ...
First, I will explain roughly how I plan to use the TPM: I am using something called tpm-luks which stores a key in both TPM NVRAM and adds the key to one of the LUKS keyslots. The initramfs then ...
Filling the disk with random data prior to encrypting it will supposedly make it harder for the attacker to perform any cryptanalysis. Most sources seem to state this is because it will be harder for ...
I've created a few encrypted devices with LUKS and cryptsetup on Linux and am pretty comfortable with disk encryption in this regard. I've seen it mentioned in many different places that when setting ...
In CBC mode of operation, ciphertext from previous block is used as IV in next block. How then can AES-CBC be used for disk encryption (LUKS), when the data on the disk (ie the ciphertext) keeps ...
Although this is closely related to the recently closed question Evil maids in the server room [closed], I believe that it's more answerable. I'd like to unlock LUKS volumes on remotely hosted ...
