Question Encrypted File System?

Wired Magazine - Dec 2003 - Article : CodeFellas

Quote " Our backend servers will all be based on Mandrake Linux, one of the few versions of Linux that offers encryption for both user data and the swap partition."

I just downloaded and installed Mandrake Linux 9.2 Download Edition, replacing my RedHat 9.0 installation, because of this article.

The MandrakeLinux website describes the features of ML 9.2 :

kernel-secure ( I don't know what this is)
Encrypted File System !!

How do I implement and configure Encrypted File System? I've looked all over the Web and I can't find any info about this anywhere..... I do my very best to find the answer in the forums before I ask the question.

PS.. I am the proverbial "noob", but I'm catching on quick. I may reinstall my system so I can use xfs instead of ext3.

please help and thanx,

Please do not post the same question twice. Double posting is in breach of the Rules you signed up to. A mod will probably be in touch.

I understand that you were probably frustrated that after 12 hours no one had come back to you. But be patient.

I have found some refences and will post them on your original thread.
