In this video Kevin Dankwardt describes Linux approaches to encrypted storage including LUKS and encrypted file systems. We set up, zero out, format, and mount a LUKS-encrypted partition.
- [Instructor] File System Encryption.…So the way to go these days with Linux is use LUKS.…Linux Unified Key Setup-on-disk format.…This encrypts at the partition level,…it's not a file system type, it's not an encrypted…file system, this is better.…Everything in the partition is encrypted,…that means it doesn't have to be a file system…and you can have your own kind of file system…on top of it and you can even have your swap space…encrypted which is important.…You know if you do a suspended disk…all of your Ram gets copied out to disk,…you want that encrypted, right?…So this is great for removable media…or computers that move like laptops.…
Also, LUKS provides multiple keys,…so you can have different people with different keys…if you want.…You'll probably use LUKS when you do an install,…you can just during you install say you want…your system encrypted, and then you come up…with a passphrase, like a password of what to type in…to allow access, don't forget that, I've forgotten it,…I have a laptop and I can't get to my own directory anymore…
