Loopback Encrypted Filesystem HOWTO

Copyright by Ryan T. Rhea, rhear@cs.winthrop.edu

v1.1, 29 November 1999


This document explains how to setup and then use a filesystem that, when mounted by a user, dynamically and transparently encrypts its contents. The filesystem is stored in a regular file, which can be hidden or named non-conspicuously such that it would most likely be overlooked. This allows for a high level of secure storage of data.
