Description Miloslav Trmač 2009-05-22 05:20:39 EDT
Created attachment 345070 [details]
Add direct master key access to libcryptsetup.

The attached patch adds:

* crypt_luks_get_volume_info () and related functions, that allow
  reading volume metadata more cleanly than attempting to parse the
  output of crypt_luksDump ().
* Four functions that allow direct manipulation of the master key,
  necessary for automated master key backup.
* Minor Makefile changes to fix build when builddir != srcdir.

The patch is necessary for https://fedorahosted.org/volume_key/ .  I have sent it upstream, filing here as well so it doesn't get lost.
Comment 1 Milan Broz 2009-05-22 05:57:31 EDT
Is that patch accepted by upstream maintainer? (I mean ack for design, not commit in svn.)
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2009-05-22 06:16:38 EDT
I haven't received any response so far.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:19:26 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

The new libbcryptsetup library with master key acces interface is in rawhide already (cryptsetup-lib-1.1.*).

I do not plan this update for F11 because of library soname change.
