I forgot the password of one of my account on Ubuntu 16.04.
The user account directory is encrypted.
I have configured the Yubikey SSH key based login so I am able to login, into that account. But when I login using Yubikey SSH, it does not decrypt the user home directory.
I know the password that Ubuntu uses to encrypt home directory is encrypted by password of that account. But I don't remember that password.
Is there any possibility that SSH key on Yubikey can decrypt the user home directory also ?
I am using currently all the password combinations that I ever used in the past but for some reason its not getting cracked. I am using John The Ripper to crack my own password. Is there any possibility that someone might have messed up login files?
