Encryption of harddrive
I run a dual-boot system with two physical harddrives, WinXP and Slackware 12.
Ive begun a reinstallation of Slack in order to encrypt the partitions (/home and /swap as minimum) to improve security of the files.
The current layout is
cryptsetup has until now been used on /swap and /home, but I consider encryption of all Linux partitions (/boot excluded ...) in order to secure the whole linux box. (i dont care about the XP - its only for games)
Now: If the /sda fails, or I othervise have to reinstall Slack, how do I reconstruct the access to the encrypted /home partition, through the cryptsetup procedure or ... ?
Any pointers to this will be welcome
