Description Matt Domsch 2004-07-03 08:51:44 EDT
Description of problem:
For laptop users in particular, it would be really nice to be able to
have the / file system built on a dm-crypt device on the disk
partition where / would usually go.  This would prevent anyone
stealing the laptop from being able to access any of the data (besides
the unencrypted /boot partition of course).

See the lengthy-ish fedora-devel-list thread about this... 

The big problems really revolve around how the user interfaces with it.

See also bug #124789, "[PATCH] Add encrypted root filesystem support
to mkinitrd."
