Encryption of the SD card?

Post by Overmind »

Encryption of the SD card or BootStick etc.?


Is there the possibility that one can encrypt the SD / USB / CD, so that in case of loss no one can read and use the data as now in plain text? At the moment it is a higher risk of loss or theft and / or if users just want to read the SD card, it is very easy and questionable!

1. Raspberry Pi cannot boot from encrypted SD. So binary files cannot be encrypted.
2. We can encrypt configs. No one can read encrypted file without entering password. So wtware will ask password on every boot. Is your user ready to enter password at every boot?

1. Yes I know that :wink:

2. yes, if it offers the possibility that the configuration files are no longer in clear text on the SD card. It is best that all configuration files are encrypted with the boot menu password or a separate password, especially the openvpn.cfg file.
