Q: losetup encryption on raw disk
Date: 18 Sep 2003 06:26:53 -0700
I am running Debian/Gnu Linux with the 2.4.22 kernel. I would like to
use losetup to encrypt a raw disk (/dev/hda?). Is this possible?
Can I use
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hdaX count=(size of /dev/hdaX)
to initialize, then
losetup -e AES --keybits 128 /dev/loop0 /dev/hdaX
to encrypt/decrypt it?
