loop-AES can be used to encrypt disk partitions, removable media, swap space and other devices. It provides measures to strengthen the encryption: Passphrase seeds, multiple hash iterations, MD5 IV and use of alternating encryption keys.
Encryption keys can be stored in a GnuPG-encrypted keyfile, which allows the passphrase to be changed without re-encryption. Keyfiles can also be encrypted asymmetrically for multi-user access.
This package includes the cipher modules blowfish, twofish and serpent in addition to the default cipher (AES).
If you compiled a custom kernel, you will most likely need to compile a custom version of these modules as well. The package loop-aes-source has been provided for this purpose.
loop-AES for Debian Max Vozeler <email@example.com> Mount support ------------- The loop-AES kernel module requires support in the mount tools (mount, umount, swapon, losetup) to work correctly that the Debian mount package doesn't fully provide. In order to get full loop-AES support, you can install the loop-aes-utils package. Loading loop-AES with udev --------------- more»
