Protecting filesystems and swap space with Cryptmount

Friday, 7 March 2008, 12:00 AM EST

Cryptmount allows you to encrypt both your filesystems and swap space. An encrypted filesystem can be stored on a block device like a normal filesystem -- for example, using /dev/sda2 -- or inside a normal file in another filesystem. This later method is especially handy when you would like to work with an encrypted filesystem without changing your partition tables or working with the Logical Volume Manager (LVM). Cryptmount can also encrypt your swap space so that information from an encrypted filesystem is not inadvertently made less secure by the Linux kernel swapping a process out to disk.
