Description

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 using encrypted file systems/block devices, the rescue mode functionality should continue to work as expected, and not create situations where the encryption leads to undesired errors; in particular, a user should be able to successfully enter rescue mode for a system that has its root fs on an encrypted block device.

Steps To Reproduce

Set up the system that uses one or more of each kind of encryption:

  • encrypted block devices
  • encrypted filesystems

Then start the installer and test:

  • Boot anaconda
  • Proceed to the partitioning dialog
  • Each of the encrypted block devices are correctly identified by anaconda, and require passphrase to access
  • Each of the encrypted file systems are correctly identified by anaconda, and require passphrase to access

Expected Results

  • Verify each of the encrypted block devices are correctly identified by anaconda, and require passphrase to access
  • Verify each of the encrypted file systems are correctly identified by anaconda, and require passphrase to access
