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 have been assured that this is possible, but have so far not found any reference that will clue me as to how to do it. I need to deploy an "appliance" with software and data that the user is permitted to use, but which I would prefer to keep them from poking around inside. The user will not have root access, so the running system should be protected.
I have a computer where both / and /home are encrypted with LUKS. I'd like to install Plops boot manager though. I'm worried that it will overwrite data when it installs, because the Plop installer runs before the encrypted disks are mounted, so I don't think it has any way of knowing that it's about to overwrite encrypted data.
