    Default LUKS HDD encryption

    Greetings,

    Does BT3f support LUKS HDD encryption via dm-crypt/cryptsetup? I can't get it to work.

    bt dev # cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb mydisk
    Enter LUKS passphrase:
    Failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping.
    Check kernel for support for the aes-xts-plain:sha512 cipher spec and verify that /dev/sdb contains at least 258 sectors.
    Failed to read from key storage
    Command failed: No key available with this passphrase.
    bt ~ # modprobe aes
    bt ~ # modprobe sha512
    bt ~ # modprobe xts
    FATAL: Module xts not found.
    bt ~ # modprobe dm-crypt
    FATAL: Module dm_crypt not found.

    The error is obvious. The kernel needs to be rebuilt with the proper support and modules. Because BT is designed to be a live cd which is erased every time it is rebooted I doubt that disk encryption support was very high on the list.

    LUKS is awesome once you get it working though. No I don't have it working in BT, just in Ubuntu.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Well poo! I was hoping the kernel rebuild would not be necessary, but thanks for the explanation.
