LUKS encryption, sets


Hey, I'd like to know if there's a simple way to create a LUKS encryption drive with different passwords? A real one that leads to one set of data, and another that leads to a whole different set of data. Is this even possible with LUKS?

You can have different passwords to unlock different file systems. You still have to log in to each individual file system. But as far as using the password as a differentiator flag itself, I couldn't say. A good basic getting started reference for this can be found in Slackware's distribution base here:

ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...ADME_CRYPT.TXT

It might have enough information in it to get you where you need to go with this.
