Anaconda Encrypted Boot IPA key Management
Provide enterprise-class key management support for encrypted devices
- Name: [Dave Lehman] / [Miloslav Trmac]
- Completed in F11: 50% - cryptsetup-luks changes appear to be in
- remaining work for this feature will land by F12 beta (~2009-07-28)
Unclear how we're handling this; need input from security side. I believe initial plan is to expand cryptsetup-luks for admin key, then possibly add LVM changes to move encryption there.
Enterprise customers want a means by which they can guarantee access to the data on encrypted block devices in employees' systems. This way they still have a way in if the user changes the device's keys/passphrases.
Product Variants / High Level Use Cases
Relevant to desktops/laptops particularly, but depending upon implementation may be interesting for other products as well e.g. to support encrypted databases, medical records protection.
