How-To: Encrypt a USB key with cryptsetup

Posted 05-26-2013 at 03:26 AM by gegechris99
Updated 06-10-2013 at 03:53 PM by gegechris99 (Typo error)

Recently the laptop of one of my friends was stolen. She was worried not by the loss of the laptop but by the fact that it contained scanned copies of identification documents (driver's license, identity card, passport).

This rang a bell in my head. I promised myself to encrypt my laptop on the next release of Slacwkare 14.1 which I hope will come soon which means when it's ready

In the meantime, I'm using a USB key as a target destination for my backup script using...
