The other day I got a new backup HDD so I can rotate my external disks and take them offsite in case my house blows up. I enjoy disk encryption on these sorts of drives that will be stored safely and the data is inaccessible. However, after backing up my data I realized that I didn't employ ZFS...
I want encrypt external USB drive, at this moment I use dm-crypt (XFS filesystem), but I cannot read this drive under freeBSD.
Do you know any software, which can encrypt drive and it will work on Linux and FreeBSD?
At this moment i think about TrueCrypt,but maybe you know something better.
I set up my FreeBSD-desktop nearly a year ago but with unencrypted disks (please don't ask…).
Now I am in the need to encrypt at least the home directory of my user. What would be the best way to do that without reinstalling my system?
I have two disks in one zpool-mirror taking up the whole...
I'm intending to encrypt a disk to be used for date backups via a USB connected external drive enclosure (Sabrent). gbde looks like the way to go but I don't see specific mention in the handbook about its use when mounting a disk after system boot. Anyone here have experience in this?
I'm new to FreeBSD and learning about geli encryption. I've setup a system using the FreeBSD 11.1 installer. The storage setup is 4x 6TB disks using zfs. Using the installer I chose a RAID 1+0 setup (using all four disks), with full-disk encryption.
The installer created 2 zfs pools...
I have exactly the same problem, which is also described in this thread.
However, the solution does not work for me.
Before the beastie menu, the boot loader asks for the password.
No matter what I enter there, the boot process continues.
Later, when the root system is to be mounted...
FreeBSD Geli encrypted container
FreeBSD geli encrypted container with zfs, truecrypt replacement
Support for geli is available as a loadable kernel module. To configure the system to automatically load the module at boot time, add the following line to /boot/loader.conf:
I'm new to FreeBSD but I have experience with Linux distributions. I'm very happy with FreeBSD so far. I used the guided encryption zfs option also I have raidz with 4xHDD.
The encryption key is on boot pool at /boot/encryption.key, right? I also have encrypt every HDD with geli use new key and...
Hello everybody, I have just registered here because I am planning a project where I think FreeBSD could be the ideal OS.
I am currently running a dual boot system with Arch Linux and Windows 10. Both systems have FDE, Linux with LUKS (LVM) and Windows with Bitlocker, so data can not be easily...
I am an idiot.
I have no backup. Nothing critically important, but 6 TB of personal data I would sorely like to recover. I solemnly swear to create real backups first, before anything else, if I can get this working again.
I'm a newbie to FreeBSD. This new FreeBSD system is replacing an old...
I'm having a problem configuring PEFS on a user's home folder.
I made a video of me following along with a very nice tutorial on YouTube by bufo333.
Despite following all of bufo333's steps, my computer is not mounting the user's directory upon reboot. The video I made shows me...
I’ve never been in a server room from which I could not steal a random hard drive without getting caught, if I wanted. I have been in server hosting companies’ rooms in more than one countries.
Should I find one that employs guards with machine guns, still there is a point from which it isn’t...
I have read a lot about gbde, geli and dm-crypt under linux, but a question remains: Why would iI store my master key on the disk? Seriously! Anybody could rip the metadata off the disk in no time and brute force the password in a cluster without even having additional encrypted sample data...
I am trying to install sysutils/pefs-kmod on a FreeBSD 10.1 box:
FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p19 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p19 #0: Sat Aug 22 03:55:09 UTC 2015 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64
with the following hardware:
CPU: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU D525 @...
I have multiple internal drives that are encrypted with geli via a password only. I am running 10.1 presently, and upon reboot I am asked for a password to decrypt the drives and continue the boot process. I do not have anything in /boot/loader.conf about them, other than instructing it...
