luks cryptsetup and lvm question
I have an lvm logical volume that is encrypted with LUKS cryptsetup. My question is that if a extend the lvm volume will it break luks? from what i understand luks does not encrypt the whole disk but instead keeps some information at the beginning of the partition and then encrypts/decrypts data as you read/write from the drive. If this is the case then I could extend the partition without breaking LUKs and also have the new data be encrypted also.
Will this work or will extending the logical volume break luks/cryptsetup?
