Encrypt your filesystems

A loopback device is a quick nice way to make a encrypted filesystem.

If you are using modules you need to load these first:

  modprobe loop;modprobe cryptoloop;modprobe cipher-aes

Basically you:

  losetup -e aes -k 256 /dev/loop0 /dev/partition

You will be asked for a password. Then

  mount /dev/loop0 /path/to/mount
