I am from Germany. I have interests in security-related subjects and follow pages here on a variety of networking and encryption topics. The distro I have used most is Debian, interrupted by stints to Ubuntu. I have been using Arch since Mid 2011. Feel free to leave comments on the talk page here or send me an email via the wiki interface.

drafting for Dm-crypt/Encrypting_an_Entire_System#Overview

Scenarios Description of the universe and its orbit in itself and in general to test cell borders
Pros Cons
#Scenario 1 A simple partitioning and straight-forward set-up for a fully encrypted root.
Simple partitioning Inflexible; all disk-space to be encrypted has to be pre-allocated
#Scenario 2 A single encrypted partition, partitioning flexibility is achieved by using LVM inside it.
Simple partitioning with knowledge of LVM LVM is an additional mapping layer
#Scenario 3 This setup uses dm-crypt only after the LVM for simple partitioning and straight-forward set-up for a fully encrypted root.
LVM can be used to span multiple disks Complex to maintain, changing logical volumes requires changing encryption mappers first
#Scenario 5 Usage of dm-crypt plain mode, i.e. without LUKS options for multiple keys, and a /boot on USB.
Data resilience for cases where a LUKS header may be damaged High care to all encryption parameters is required. It is not possible to change the single encryption key.
Scenarios Description Advantages Disadvantages
#Scenario 1 Desc 1 Adv 1 Dis 1
#Scenario 2 Desc 2 Adv 2 Dis 2
