Is there a way to mount (read/write) an encrypted file system on Windows? By "encrypted" I mean whatever it is that Ubuntu does to encrypt a file system when you choose that option during formatting. The underlying file system is in NTFS format.
A related question: is it correct to assume that encrypting and the file system format are completely independent things?
I would like to create a 100GB file to use as a file-system. The file will be stored on an encrypted volume, so the file/file-system itself does not need to be (further) encrypted. Searching has revealed many different methods of doing this. Some use losetup, some don't.
I am setting up an automated installation of Ubuntu using kickstart and network booting.
With redhat this works quite well, however Ubuntu kickstart appears rather limited and I can not find documentation describing the options available.
The most important one for me that appears missing is:
part /home --size=35000 --grow --fstype=xfs --encrypted
Assume I create an encrypted virtual disk using a loop device mapped on a file,
LOOP=$(sudo losetup -f --show $FILE)
sudo /sbin/cryptsetup -y -c aes -s 256 -h sha256 create crypt $LOOP
sudo cryptsetup close crypt
sudo -d $LOOP
How can I:Change a password after having executed the above code?
Provide a key in a file instead of a password?
To store personal data, I have encrypted a partition with LUKS but, according to the file manager, the resulting encrypted device is much smaller: 334 GB versus 385 GB. However, the Disk Utility in Debian says the encrypted device is 385 GB. The file manager itself, before mounting the partition, says that it is 385 GB.
