Description of problem:
Loop AES is a kernel patch that provides loopback encryption by 
patching the loop device.  There was previously some investigation of 
this (see bug 57947) around the RH 7.3 timeframe but it was decided 
to defer this.  Since then, disk crypto has become more mainstream.

loop AES is at http://loop-aes.sourceforge.net

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Loop AES is not integrated.  Repro doesn't apply

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-05-02 05:29:33 EDT
actually this code has been superceded by the dm-crypt, the crypto
device mapper code, which we do include. There's no point putting
loop-aes in now.
