Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1254064
encrypted swap should have optional password
Last modified: 2016-04-08 16:12:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Setting up custom partitioning, lvm with only one encrypted volume (swap), it requires a password. blank does not work. Swap should be able to use a random password. For example, this line in /etc/crypttab:
swap /dev/sdaX /dev/urandom swap,cipher=aes-cbc-essiv:sha256,size=256
This would break resuming from hibernate.
Anaconda allows having no swap or a small swap, which both break hibernate. This is a perfectly valid and useful configuration.
