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 functionality should continue to work as expected, and not create situations where the encryption leads to undesired errors.


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

Steps To Reproduce

  • start the installer
  • enter the disk druid paritioning screen
  • verify existing RAID device member partitions (such as sda1), OR

create new RAID device member partitions

  • Create a new RAID filesystem (such as device md0)
  • select the "encrypt" checkbox for the partition using the new device
  • enter a passphrase for the partition
  • continue the installation

Expected Results

in post-install system, verify:

  • a passphrase for the RAID device (such as device md0) is required to access it
  • an entry for the filesystem using the RAID device (md0) exists in /etc/crypttab
