Ubuntu Security :: Mount Flash Drive Encrypted By Truecrypt Using A Keyfile?

Dec 15, 2010

I have two questions regarding auto mount function of Truecrypt. First question:

I want to automatically mount my flash drive encrypted by Truecrypt using a keyfile whenever I plug the drive. How can I do this? I use Ubuntu 10.10.

Second question:

As I do not know the answer of my first question, I currently use following command in a startup script to mount my encrypted flash drive automatically at every system start-up.

Quote:
/usr/bin/truecrypt -k ~/keyfile --auto-mount=favorites

My problem with this method is, Truecrypt always search for the drive in the same path saved in favorite drives list, e.g. /dev/sdb1. However sometimes there are more than one flash drive plugged to my computer and my encrypted drive's path changes. In such cases Truecrypt cannot mount my encrypted drive because it cannot find the drive in its path.

As a workaround I tried "auto-mount=devices" parameter. It is slow because it checks every mounted drive, and some of them external hard disk big in size. Moreover it does not recognize any mount point parameter. I'd like to mount the drive to the same mount point every time.

Quote:
/usr/bin/truecrypt -t --auto-mount=devices -p "" -k ~/keyfile /media/MyMountPoint

The command above mounts the drive however it is slow and to the destination of "/media/treucrypt1".

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Deleted Truecrypt Partition

Feb 16, 2010

my /dev/sdb was a truecrypt partition that was mounted when I accidentally deleted the partition in gparted (instead of sdc, stupid). I'm pretty sure I haven't overwritten anything since then, but I'm not sure how to go about recovering this one. To confound the problem, the only way I can install stuff to my ubunut machine is by downloading on a windows machine and transferring by memory stick.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install As A Hidden System Partition With Truecrypt

Oct 7, 2010

Right now I only have Windows 7 64bit installed. I'd like to keep it installed and have a hidden Truecrypt system partition that holds Ubuntu. I've installed Ubuntu once before, but it was a while ago so I don't remember the details. Also, I'm not entirely sure how to work Truecrypt as I've never used it before. Do I install Ubuntu first and then run Truecrypt, if so, how do I deal with the fact that installing Ubuntu involves many partitions. Does Truecrypt recognize this automatically or do I have to somehow encrypt them all?

Slackware :: Repartition Without Losing Windows Recovery Partition?

Mar 5, 2010

I got a new laptop today (yay) with windows 7 on it. I want to keep a small windows partition, just in case I need it for something. Anyway, I know how to use fdisk, and am comfortable installing on a disk without data I need to maintain.. but this new computer came with 5 (!) windows partitions. I don't know where to start.

I don't mind reinstalling windows after partitioning if I have to, but I really don't want to screw up the recovery partition. Any clues on where to start or what to look for? Or what NOT to do?

It looks like "my computer" has two partitions listed (c: and d: ). I guess I could just take note of the size of these two partitions, free up the partitions that match in fdisk, then repartition that space and install everything.

I need to reboot to do that, so I'll edit with the information when I have it.

fdisk output:

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x8e0eee9e

Fedora Installation :: Dual-boot F13 And Windows 7 With TrueCrypt?

Jun 30, 2010

I am having trouble getting my laptop set up the way I want it. I want to install Fedora 13, using Ext4 encryption, and I also want to install Windows 7 encrypted using TrueCrypt.

On boot, I would like to have Fedora 13s GRUB, offering me the two OS choices. If I select Fedora, then Ill get the cool graphical decryption screen, and if I select Windows 7 Ill get the TrueCrypt boot loader prompting me for the decryption key for the Windows 7 partition. Can anyone give me instructions on how to get this set up?

General :: Why Doesn't TrueCrypt Support System Encryption On Non-Windows Machines

May 16, 2011

I would love to be able to use TrueCrypt consistently across all my machines, be they Windows or Linux. As it stands, I can do full-disk encryption with pre-boot authentication only on Windows.

I don't really understand why this is. Are there technical challenges specific to Linux/Mac that make full disk encryption harder? Does anyone know whether TrueCrypt will support this in the near future.

PS. yes, I'm aware that there are other options. My goal is to simplify my life here and use the one tool across all machines.

Software :: Dual-Booting With Ubuntu Using Grub 2 And A Truecrypt Windows Installation

Apr 29, 2011

I've been trying to get a dual-boot system with a truecrypted Windows partition and grub 2 in combination to work successfully and to date, I haven't had much luck. I'm using the grub 2 version from Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS.I understand from searching through Google that there is presently no easy way to chainload the Truecrypt boot loader from Grub 2 in a similiar way that was done with Grub 1. This is because the Grub 2 payload is much larger and actually overwrites some of the Truecrypt boot loader, preventing it from starting.Does anybody know what might be going wrong here? I've been looking for ages now and can't seem to find any solution to this problem apart from restoring the Truecrypt loader to the hard disk and trying to chainload Grub 2 from Truecrypt. I'd rather use Grub 2 as the main loader though as Ubuntu Linux will be the main operating system in use.

Debian :: Auto-mounted Truecrypt Partition (keyfile Based) - Can't Add A Keyfile To The Volume Using The GUI

Nov 18, 2010

I have a Truecrypt-encrypted Windows [system] partition, that I want to be opened and mounted automatically (using a keyfile) when I log into Debian, since it is also encrypted and I don't want to type two passphrases. It think this could be done with LUKS. With TC I probably have to go with the CLI, but haven't figured it out yet. And I can't add a keyfile to the volume using the GUI. In order to mount the volume I have to tick the Mount partition using system encryption (preboot authentication) checkbox, or otherwise I get Incorrect password or no TrueCrypt volume found. And same when I try to add a keyfile.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
Mint
Ubuntu-Studio
Edubuntu
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu :: Finding Windows Partition - Use FAT32 Partition For Photo Images And Old Windows Files

May 31, 2011

I got tired of dual booting on my old computer so on the new computer I am planning to run XP on VMware Player. The problem is that on the new computer neither Ubuntu or XP can "see" the FAT32 partition. I intend to use the FAT32 partition for photo images and old Windows files and need access from both Ubintu and XP.

Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Fedora :: Recovering An Encrypted Partition?

Apr 8, 2010

I have been using fedora 12 for last 6 months, recently I bought an external USB hard drive of 320 GB capacity. I made 2 partitions using the Disk Utility in Fedora. I encrypted the first partition as it was supposed to hold a lot of sensitive data, and yes it did have. Now I had to change my OS to AV linux for some audio-video editing work which wasnt being done properly on fedora due to some issue beyond my knowledge. now the problem is my encrypted partition is not accessible in my new installation. I see an empty space on my /dev/sda1. although no change to partition data has been done and the data on the second partition /dev/sda2 is easily accessible. when putting the drive on automount, is does not ask me for the password and neither does it show me the data. I have tried fdisk and sme other utilities but have failed to get my drive unencrypted.

Fedora :: Cannot Mount Encrypted Partition?

Apr 11, 2011

I used Ubuntu for years now, but since the latest decisions got public I deceided to try something new: Fedora. I installed the system as a dualboot,Ubuntu and my old data. Because Fedora got installed inbetween of two partitions,ad to do the partitioning manually. I just made one partition /dev/sda4. During the installation process I got asked about the password for my /dev/sda1 partition. Of course, I entered it. So far so good.Now, everytime when I boot, the boot process stops and asks me for the password of the /dev/sda1 partition. However, the boot process does not go on, unless i press STRG+C.After the log in, I can also not access my data, by entering the password (GUI).The only way I can acces the data on that partition is:

Code:
su -
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/DEVICENAME luks-fedora

Ubuntu :: Restoring Encrypted 11.04 Partition?

I've since install opensue on the same laptop hoping that if i don't leave that partition alone during opensuse installation i would be able to mount and enter my key to access the data within...stupid me.... i formated my /boot and / partition, not my /home partition of 450gb. I'm now back on ubuntu 11.04 trying to get access to my data. i'v found the command "encryptfs-recover-private" but i only works on mounted partitons, i can't mount my encrypted partition because the system does not recongnize it. I've have to format it to mount it.

Debian Installation :: Removing An Encrypted LVM Partition?

When I removed the old debian and started the installation of the new version, the encrypted partition could not be used to install, and the drive itself was creating an error message when I tried to mount the installation there. This is probably a vague explanation of what is happening, but does anyone know how to remove these encrypted LVM partitions?

Debian Configuration :: DNS And Resizing Encrypted Partition

Feb 27, 2016

I have Debian and Virtual Box with another Debian. I have resized max size of vdi file with VBoxManage modifyhd but now I need to resize partition on virtual machine's system. I've downloaded GParted and I can run machine from this ISO as CD. Partition is encrypted on machine.Unfortunately GParted doesn't start with X so I have to use it in terminal. I can see partitions:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 80 GiB, 85899345920 bytes, 167772610 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x3914....

[code]....

So I though maybe I need to use this (URL...). I couldn't find similar tutorial about Debian or GParted but OK, it's just executing these commands, not modifying its source.list.But I cannot even do the update:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/# sudo apt-get update
Err: http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian sid InRelease
  Temporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
Err2: http://free.nchc.org.tw/drbl-core drbl InRelease
  Temporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
Reading package lists... Done
W: Failed to fetch http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian/dists/sid/InRelease  Teporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
W: Failed to fetch http://free.nchc.org.tw/drbl-core/dists/drbl/InRelease  Temporary failure resolving 'free.nchc.org.tw'
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

So I check my internet connection. VirtualBox has 'attached to NAT' and before I run out of space on virtual machine, Debian could access internet. So it's only something about this GParted. I have modified /etc/resolv.conf with vi (even vim is not available). And it has two valid nameservers. I haven't restarted anything, as I'm not sure if I need to, after modifying resolv.conf file.But even in that case I cannot ping anything from GParted:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/# ping www.google.com
ping: unknown host www.google.com

How can I access internet from GParted and resize encrypted partition?
