Link to the thread: Recommended options for LUKS (cryptsetup) I wonder what's the exact difference between SHA1 and SHA512. I know that SHA512 has a longer key but I've read that it doesn't matter ...
Recently I searched substitute for truecrypt and played a bit with cryptsetup. The steps I did: mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sdb1 sudo cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sdb1 enc_vol sudo mount /dev/mapper/...
I'm trying to create a file that will serve as a LUKS filesystem, with cryptsetup 1.6.1 under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This is what I'm doing: $ dd if=/dev/zero of=rfs bs=1048576 count=4 $ sudo cryptsetup ...
Would using an interation count greater than 1 with a random keyfile of length greater than the master key be of any benefit?
If I were to have a 4096-bit file of random data (/dev/random) used as a keyfile for LUKS, would there be any benefit to having a key iteration count higher than 1? My reasoning is that the attacker ...
