Debian Configuration :: Decrypt Luks Volume With A Keyfile On Boot From Grub

Jul 6, 2015

I have install a debian jessie in my laptop, i create a lvm volume with /, /home, etc and a /boot partition outside. the i move this partition to the lvm volume and boot from it, everything it´s okay and it works.

The problem is that wen boot it ask me the passphrase to load grub, and then, when grub loads the kernel, it ask me again the passphrase.

I read that i can pass a key file to the initramfs to solve this, but where i see it, he uses mkinitcpio, and i can´´t find this package in the debian repos, it an arch package, also i tried this option [URL] ...

But it asking me the passphrase 3 times, and the third fails, the sistem starts, but i read the fail in the log.

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.

OpenSUSE :: Keyfile For Encrypted Drive (luks)?

Oct 18, 2010

I can't seem to get an encrypted partition to recognize a keyfile. It is a backup partition that I would like to keep unmounted until a cron-script runs once a week to backup my sensitive data. In order for the script to run without my assistance, I thought I'd use a keyfile to authorize the mount.

So far I've created a keyfile and have added it to the partition using "luksKeyAdd". It didn't really say it was successful, but when I do a luksdump, it shows that another key slot has been enabled, so I believe it worked. After that I created a /etc/crypttab file with the following:

Code:
backup_sdd1 /dev/sdd1 /root/backup luks
/dev/sdd1 being the backup partition, and /root/backup being the keyfile

After rebooting, I am still prompted for a password when trying to mount the encrypted partition (sdd1), and there is no device "/dev/mapper/backup_sdd1" created like I believe there should be. I haven't added any entries to fstab, as I don't want this partition to mount at boot.

Fedora Security :: Image An Entire Luks System Encrypted Volume And The Rest Of The Used HDD, The MBR And /boot Partition?

Jan 21, 2009

I need a FREE solution that can image an entire Luks system encrypted volume and the rest of the used HDD, the MBR and /boot partition. Note: MBR and /boot are not encrypted. Note 2: I want to be able to restore entire drive from image with only a couple of steps. Note 3: Destination HDD space is a factor. Image file must be compressed and the image file must be around 40 to 50 GB or less. The smaller the image the better.

I have used clonezilla live cd before but not for encrypted volumes. I know you can install it in Linux. But, I don't know how to configure it after installation. I would be very happy if someone could tell me how to configure clonezilla in Fedora. How to guides are also welcome. I have one more question. If I image the encrypted volumes and all the stuff I mentioned above while logged in to Fedora, and I restore the drive from the image, will the recovered drive still be encrypted?

Debian Configuration :: LUKS With Only One Passphrase?

Jun 20, 2011

Is there any way to only have one passphrase prompt when using multiple LUKS partitions? Well there must be, as that's how Fedora does it - it asks you once, and tries that passphrase on every LUKS volume (with a nice plymouth prompt), I just don't know how to do that on Wheezy. Don't say I have to nuke my install and use LVM instead of regular partitions or put a keyfile on a USB stick. My partition layout is:

/boot (plain)
swap (luks)
/ (luks)
/data (2nd drive, luks)

So I get asked 3 times during boot.

Debian Configuration :: Creating LUKS Encrypted USB Disk

Jan 15, 2016

Is it better to install LUKS to raw disk (/dev/sdb) or disk partition (/dev/sdb1)? What are best LUKS options?

"cryptsetup benchmark" output
Code: Select allPBKDF2-sha1      1310720 iterations per second
PBKDF2-sha256     862315 iterations per second
PBKDF2-sha512     590414 iterations per second

Is slow hash better or how to choose it? It is clear that aes-xts is best choise. Is 265 bit key good?

Debian Configuration :: Using Grub To Boot From An Iso Image?

May 30, 2010

I have a Knoppix DVD-ROM. I also have its image as k.iso at the second partition of HDD of my laptop. I use the DVD-ROM and write at the boot prompt the cheat code:

knoppix bootfrom=/dev/sda5/k.iso

I also have a folder Knoppix made during bootprompt by using the cheatcode knoppix tohd=/dev/sda5 and I can use the following cheatcode while booting from the DVD-ROM, like knoppix fromhd=/dev/sda5My laptop runs Debian Lenny 5.0.4, installed in the first partition of my HDD.
Can Grub be configured to boot from the Knoppix k.iso image, or the knoppix folder, which I use to use the Knoppix OS, so that I am freed from using the DVD, when I want to use the knoppix system?

Debian Configuration :: LILO As A Boot Loader From Grub

Aug 26, 2015

I am thinking about maybe trying "LILO" [URL] ....

For my boot loader, from what I have read it sounds even more tempting.

I am totally sick of GRUB, even though it is what seems to be the most popular,and is what normally is used as the "default" when any linux system is installed, that is what the install ISO's use, but anyway, that is another topic, over the years, "grub failing", has been a problem for me , many times.

I saw this (From LILO to GRUB Howto).

Debian Configuration :: After Installing GRUB Win 7 Fails To Boot

Nov 26, 2015

I have a ~ 2008 notebook (Compaq CQ60-137EL) on which I had Windows 7 only (it was sold with Windows Vista installed).

Later I installed Debian Jessie 8.2.0 Stable ("Graphical expert install" from DVD), along with GRUB as a boot manager (I chose not to install it on the EFI removable media path).

Since then, if I select Windows 7 on the GRUB boot screen, I see "Starting Windows...", and after few seconds the screen flashes for a moment, and then the PC reboots: I see the bios screen, followed by the GRUB screen again.
What's even more weird about this is the fact it just happens only in like ~50% of the cases. In the other 50%, Win7 starts flawlessy.

I even tried to install Debian first, then Windows 7, then re-install GRUB, but I got the same issue, even with both system freshly installed.

On 6 attempts, 3 times it worked and 3 times it didn't.

On my desktop PC I'm in the same setting, but I don't have this issue. I think it may be related with the fact I have Win7 on a SSD and I installed Debian on a separate HDD, while on my notebook, as you can imagine, there's just one single HDD.

Debian Configuration :: Restoring Boot Record After GRUB Installation?

Mar 11, 2011

I have recently installed Debian alongside Vista on the same boot menu using the GRUB booting device. Only problem is, I couldn't boot Vista at all any more, so I removed my Debian installation from that drive. But the GRUB boot record persists, I don't have the Recovery disk to restore my old system, so I have to find a way to manually remove the GRUB track and put the old record in its place. I assume there was a copy made of it by the installation program, now my only problem is to find that file and copy the content back in place (at the address at the very beginning of the drive) all that by using Linux code, since that is all I have left. Being new to this game, I have no idea how to begin writing the right command for a job like this

Debian Configuration :: Grub Config For Dual Boot (Identical But Independent)

Jan 3, 2016

I have a Jessie with grub2. I've bought ssd and copied root partition onto it. I've also installed grub on this disc. I would like to have dual boot:

- First option: old root booted from hdd
- second option: boot from copied ssd and use root from it.

So i would have two identical but independent configurations.

Both disc has different uids (changed after cloning).

I had a hope that i will change fstab to mount root partition from ssd, but it doesn't work. I need to change grub configuration, but how to add new position?

There is also problem that bios doesn't allow me to choose disc to boot from. So i would rather prefer to change grub configuration for dual boot from different disc.

Slackware :: Adding A Volume To A LUKS/LVM Setup?

Mar 21, 2010

I have been following Alien Bob's README_CRYPT.TXT on the install disk and playing around with LUKS and LVM as highlighted in the section Combining LUKS and LVM. I got this working following the examples in the readme however I now wish to add another volume to the volume group. I have got this working and extended the group with an encrypted volume so it's now bigger. I want the two included physical volumes in the volume group (which are both encrypted) to be opened on bootup.

As it is now I am prompted for a password for the first physical volume (the passwords are set to be the same) and that opens and boots the volume. It has a problem with the second PV I have added and doesn't open this. There are errors on boot up about this and pvdisplay give this:

Code:
Couldn't find device with uuid 'JVirxL-lmqH-SUym-3lXG-MnXx-Qjk8-JZRha8'.
Couldn't find device with uuid 'JVirxL-lmqH-SUym-3lXG-MnXx-Qjk8-JZRha8'.

Slackware :: Shrink A LUKS-encrypted Physical Volume - LVM2

Dec 28, 2009

2. /dev/sda2 LVM2 Remaining space (this is my physical volume and is LUKS-encrypted)

There is 1 volume group, slackvg, and 3 logical volumes:

1. swap 2GB

2. root jfs 10GB

3. home jfs 50GB

I would like to shrink /dev/sda2 to make room for another regular partition, is this possible?

General :: Use A Keyfile On A Removable USB Drive For Encrypted Root In Debian?

Jun 6, 2010

Recently set up root encryption with a couple of LVM volumes inside one LUKS volume, and I am just a little confused as to how I would go about getting it to automatically unlock using a keyfile stored on a USB flash drive, I presume I would have to put the drive in the fstab inside my initramfs (if there is one), and add a hook for USB device support.

But I digress, essentially, I want to know what I have to do to enable my LUKS volume (containing all of my partitions sans /boot) to unlock using a keyfile stored on a USB flash drive, rather than a manually entered passphrase.

Debian Configuration :: LVM Volume - Swap Not Working / Activated

Jul 29, 2010

I'm running Debian testing/unstable, with my swap on an lvm volume. When I boot into the system, the swap doesn't become activated, even though there are messages that point to the contrary (for instance: "activating swap file...done"). After it's done booting, I run the command "free" and it shows that there is no space allocated to swap. "swapon -a" doesn't load the swap file either -- I have to do "swapon /dev/mapper/xxx-xxx". The swap appears in fstab, and also in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Setup: Warning: Attempting To Install GRUB To A Partition Instead Of The MBR - Install - Lvm - Luks - Raid - Karmic Server

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running Karmic Server with GRUB2 on a Dell XPS 420. Everything was running fine until I changed 2 BIOS settings in an attempt to make my Virtual Box guests run faster. I turned on SpeedStep and Virtualization, rebooted, and I was slapped in the face with a grub error 15. I can't, in my wildest dreams, imagine how these two settings could cause a problem for GRUB, but they have. To make matters worse, I've set my server up to use Luks encrypted LVMs on soft-RAID. From what I can gather, it seems my only hope is to reinstall GRUB. So, I've tried to follow the Live CD instructions outlined in the following article (adding the necessary steps to mount my RAID volumes and LVMs). [URL]

If I try mounting the root lvm as 'dev/vg-root' on /mnt and the boot partition as 'dev/md0' on /mnt/boot, when I try to run the command $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0, I get an errors: grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea. grub-setup: error: Embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.

Somewhere in my troubleshooting, I also tried mounting the root lvm as 'dev/mapper/vg-root'. This results in the grub-install error: $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0 Invalid device 'dev/md0'

Obviously, neither case fixes the problem. I've been searching and troubleshooting for several hours this evening, and I must have my system operational by Monday morning. That means if I don't have a solution by pretty early tomorrow morning...I'm screwed. A full rebuild will by my only option.

Debian Configuration :: Error Mounting Volume - Authentication Required

Aug 31, 2015

After having problems with lxde crashing while running Jessie, and re-installing Wheezy, I am not able to mount my WinXP drive. In the past I was able to run pcmanfm and mount the drive from there. It would ask for my root password and then would mount the drive. Now, however, when I click on the drive icon it gives me an error message saying authentication required.

One thing is that when I installed Wheezy I had the WinXP drive disconnected so as to not inadvertently install Wheezy on the wrong drive (I have two identical drives). After installing I connected the WinXP drive and then did a grub update. I can boot either drive, as expected, but I can not mount the WinXP drive from pcmanfm. Do I need to change the Policykit?

Debian Configuration :: Volume Keys Not Working / Configuring Superkey

Jan 15, 2010

I'm having trouble with my keyboard functions on my netbook (eeePC 1005HA running squeeze/sid - specific build being the one available on December 23rd 2009 - hasn't been updated since installation) - specifically, some of the function keys seem to be off - i.e. when pressing Fn+key, only some actually work. The specific ones I'm having trouble with are:
Fn+F10 (mute)Fn+F11 (vol. down)Fn+F12 (vol. up)

As far as I can remember, they've never worked; at first I thought it wouldn't be an issue for me, having the volume panel, but the more time goes on, the more annoying it's becoming. Also, as it was a M$ machine at purchase, it has a Windoze key on it, which I'd like to configure to actually do something useful - preferably to open the main menu, if possible - but have so far failed to find any guides on how to do it. (Have Googled on multiple occasions, to no avail.)

Debian Installation :: From The Live Cd - Cannot Decrypt The Partition

Jul 19, 2010

I'm trying to install debian on a encrypted partition with LUKS and LVM. I've found a good tutorial for ubuntu (here but it's in french). The idea is to create a sda1 partition for /boot and create a sda2 partition which is encrypted with luks ("cryptsetup -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 luksFormat /dev/sda2") and on this encrypted partition, I use LVM to divide it in several different partitions (root, swap, home,...).

I can do it all with the debian live cd but once it's done I need to install debian. The problem is that with the basic install cd (I use netinstall), I cannot decrypt the partition for the installation (or if I can how ?)And with the live cd, I didn't find any option to do that.
