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.
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?
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.
