Encrypted /home/username

Hi All

Having been intrigued with the Wikileaks Jacob Appelbaum detention, I decided to encrypt my /home/user directory which is placed in a separate partition on my laptop.
OK
Backed up my data
Via yast deleted the current user
umount current /home
Via yast added Crypt Files:…/home .
created new user

works !!!

During bootup (after grub) the OS request’s the passphrase. (console mode)

Does anyone know what the encryption algorithm is ?

cheers Otto

save your time, NSA can still read your drive…they break the
unbreakable code of other governments in mere moments…and, jump
tall building in a single bound…

since they data mined your posting’s stream as it transited the east
coast cable entry point, and the AI alerted them you might have
something to hide, they might be reading your drive right now!

never know, huh?

Run file on the file or file -s on the partition.

Oh well, it was fun to try it. And there are better ways anyway by using the Rijndale algorithm, which as far as I know has not been crack yet.

cheers;)
