EncryptedStorage

People

Goal

We now have most of the building blocks to support encrypted removable storage.wiki page for status and details. However, some critical integration pieces are missing and should be discussed.

Requirements

  • Allow mounting of devmapper devices with pmount.
  • Implement a safe way to setup encrypted device (requires root privileges) as user.

Agenda

  • Discuss how to extend pmount to allow mounting of devmapper devices on top of removable devices.
  • Discuss how to wrap cryptsetup-luks as user.

This will probably not take a very long time (30 minutes should be enough), but I'd like to hear some more opinions.

Pre-Work

  • See wiki page for status and details.

  • Detection in hal works.
  • Setup with cryptsetup-luks works manually (as root).

  • Mounting the decrypted devmapper device works (as root).
