Support the use of encrypted filesystems for anything other than /boot using cryptsetup and LUKS. This includes install time creation/configuration, as well as integrated support in mkinitrd and initscripts (others?). Currently we are only pursuing support for encrypted devices using cryptsetup/LUKS.

When selecting the "Encrypt System" checkbox in anaconda, it is necessary to prompt the user for a passphrase to use for the encrypted filesystem.


  1. Anaconda/Features/EncryptedBlockDevices
  2. Releases/FeatureEncryptedFilesystems

Steps To Reproduce

  • Boot anaconda
  • Proceed to the disk druid partitioning screen
  • For the rootfs partition, select the checkbox item "Encrypt" to select filesystem encryption
  • Enter and confirm the passphrase in a pop up dialog for the encrypted filesystem
  • continue with installation

Expected Results

  • Confirmed "Encrypt system" item is checked
  • Confirm able to enter and confirm the passphrase in the pop up dialog
  • Verify installation completes successfully
  • Upon reboot, the user is asked for the LUKS passphrase at the console
  • Verify entry in /etc/crypttab is present for LUKS device

/etc/crypttab may look something like:

luks-VolGroup00-LogVol00 /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 none
