Any questions about loop-AES?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi, in February I'm going to publish the updated loop-AES FAQ. So until the end of the month I'm looking for any questions about loop-AES not covered by the fine loop-AES.README or the FAQ. Up-to-date questions are listed as follows (older FAQ linked in my sig), so this is your chance to pop the question you always wanted to ask; dont be shy ;-) FAQ: Help I would like to contribute. How does it work? I have run into problems... What info should I supply when writing to the mailing list? FAQ: Security Why should a key be used only once? Is keyscrubbing enabled by default? What about padlock? Is keyscrubbing available for all supported ciphers? MD5 has practically been broken but loop-AES uses it. Is that a security risk? How does loop-AES multi-key v3 mode work? Is key material in RAM properly sanitized when it is not needed anymore? Is a loop-device always auto-detached after unmounting? According to the Gutmann/Ney Article In 'Linux Magazin 10/2006' loop-AES totally sucks. What about it? Is there a defense against the cold-boot attack? FAQ: Compatibility Can I use any loop device number for root encryption? Is there a compatibility mode for mainline/kerneli.org cryptoloop in aespipe? FAQ: Tuning and Tweaking How can I use a partitionless encrypted harddisk? remount -o,rw fails on -o ro set up loop device using unprotected loop-AES keyfile How can I change my passphrase? How can I use a locally stored key for a remote box? I want to use a single boot-CD for multiple machines with root encryption running the same kernel version but using different configs. What about RAID and loop-AES? What about logical volumes (lvm) and loop-AES? I am using the kernel patch but what about options like keyscrub, padlock, max loops, and the other ciphers? FAQ: Misc Why does build-initrd.sh script fail on kernels with modern libata drivers? I am using Kubuntu 7.10 (64bit) and the initrd just segfaults during boot. Using loop-AES on slackware systems Is there a Slackware package? Which distros include loop-AES? I accidentially deleted my keyfile - can I extract it from RAM? Why is it not recommended to just replace the kernel loop module with the one from loop-AES? How can I verify that dietlibc is working correctly? I have forgotten my passphrase. Is there anything I can do? -- left blank, right bald loop-AES FAQ: http://mareichelt.de/pub/texts.loop-aes.php#faq
