Computer security: Devuan + dm-crypt >
Devuan's installer has an encryption feature, but it formats your whole hard drive and uses LVM, neither of which I want.
- Given a hard drive which has regular partitioning and not LVM.
/ (root) partition is encrypted (dm-crypt) and in use.
- Such as with an earlier release of Devuan
Install Devuan, re-using the encrypted partition without re-encrypting/formatting from scratch.
Note - I will be writing separate instructions on how to manually make and manage encrypted partitions.
Debian, Devuan + Security >
Problem: Keep an air gapped (airwalled) computer updated via a sneakernet.
This project focuses specifically on Devuan, though it ought to apply any Linux distribution based on Debian.
See also: APT, the package management tool/system for Debian.
Random notes regarding real-world security
there's more to be ported
