Talking Mount an Encrypted DMG in Ubuntu or Linux in General


Hi Guys,
I wanted to mount an encrypted AES 128-bit dmg file on my Linux machine. I know how to successfully mount unencrypted dmgs, all I have to do is download DMG Automounter for Linux: http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Deskt...er-39815.shtml

However, is there a way to mount an encrypted dmg (possibly using the linux kernel's loopback module) or even decompress it to an img file?

Any help is greatly appreciated,
Flouran

Maybe to mount encrypted dmgs I will need to port the hdiutil utility from Mac to Linux.

Any ideas on how to do that?

dmg2iso, DMGExtractor, and more

Looks like you can use a number of utilities for encrypted .dmg files, like dmg2iso and DMGExtractor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_D...#Non-Macintosh
