How would You encrypt Passwords [emails,forums,accounts] onto USB Flash the most Secure way? (It should be command line so I can use any Linux distribution on it.) Is gpg -c <filename> secure enough ? And what FAST distro would you install on it? I'm learning on old USB flash and found SliTaz pretty damn cool,I use it as a LiveUSB. Also I've tried Kubuntu but it's bit slow. Going to try Lubuntu soon too. Any other idea?
And I'd like to install some FAST distro onto new 8GB mini USB flash drive,maybe Kubuntu as well. How would you partition its Flash drive? Probably separate partition for stored encrypted files?
We have some script files on our linux servers. For security purpose our requirement is to keep these files encrypted . I mean when we open the files it will looks like as for example i am showing you one encripted file of iur server. how can i do this.
is there a way to password protect a file or folder from the terminal? i wanted to do this because I may have several friends depositing files on my ssh server that they don't want each other to see. Or i might have a file i don't want them to see.I installed cryptkeeper,but it can't take commands from the terminal. Anything else I can try?
there is one problem i encountered here while working with Embedded Artist board or Lpc 2478 uclinux.so my questions.what type of encryption does this uclinux use to encrypt the password?instead of using these 2 username and password,can i put my own password and username?
I just tried out setting a master password for Firefox saved passwords and compared the old and new (before and after setting the master password) signons.sqlite files. Although passwords were not stored in plain text in either of the files, I did notice that the files were exactly the same. Am I wrong in assuming that setting the master password did not encrypt anything at all, or am I simply looking at the wrong file?
I need to temporarily store a file containing sensitive data in a public server, in a secure way. I think that encrypting the whole file would be much more secure than creating a passworded .zip encrypted file, because they could be subject of brute force attacks. Attacking a whole file of unknow format is harder, I think. I thought of something like the command:
Code: $ programidontknow --encrypt mysensitive.file --output-file mumblerumble.file then the program asks interactively for a password) $ ls mysensitive.file mumblerumble.file
So I get one file that may look like junk. I tried to search how to do it with GnuPG. But it seems that GnuPG needs much configuration I dont want to do. I simply want to type the password one time to get the file. It doesnt need to retain any configuration for what I want to do. In similar scenario, I would want to do this on a machine/account that is not mine.
I'm using a crypt solution called DriveCrypt(for windows). But now I need a solution that does the same that DriveCrypt does but must to work in both Windows and Linux.Somebody know some software that works in Linux and Windows to encrypt folders?
i have a centos 5.4 without desktop environment. i can only access certain system settings via browser (and of course console). i would like to encrypt some folders. but these folders are used by the system. can i encrypt them? will the system still be able to access these folders? if yes, how can i encrypt only through console or is there something web based software for this?
I am looking to be able to encrypt using OpenPGP certain outgoing emails on my linux server. Currently I have GPG setup with a public key, however encryption outgoing emails prooved to be harded.After a bit of research I have found GNU Anubis which acts as a middlemad between the MUA and the MTA, by encrypting emails before they reach my MTA (Sendmail)However I am having a bit of problem with the configuration of bind and remote-mta, as specified by anubis.I have the sendmail service running on port 25 and I want to leave it there, but I have configured my php.ini SMTP port to 24. So it runs through port 24 first and anubis then forwards the emails via remote-mta to port 25Here are my anubis configs:
With all those set, I can't seem to get the basic modication of emails to work. (trying to change a certain subject to something else, just to see that anubis is working). However emails are still working with port 24 as the SMTP port.
I want to encrypt Full partition instead of creating a file and encrypting it, and also want to move this disk to another server. do i need some files also (that hold keys) with my self on new server. i am using FC11.
I was asked today if it was possible to encrypt a CDROM just as you would a disk - and I drew a blank. The question came up discussing a database we maintain with a lot of the organizations financial info plus ersonal membership data. Can I create and mount an encrypted CD? What are the performance effects? Is it a viable one to two year archive medium? The plan is to store period off-site backups and I can't get a grasp on the feasibility.
I'm a bit confused about how ssh encrypts connections. I've read a few articles on ssh and they talk about 'keys pairs' (that is public and private keys) on the server and client computers. However, ssh doesn't seem to use these keys for encryption. What are the keys it uses? This question occurred to me when I was trying to make a remote login to an Ubuntu machine. From a remote login perspective, I haven't generated keys on my client machine and haven't enabled key based logins in ssh. (I use the default password based login). If there aren't any keys on my client, then how does encryption work?
I'm currently writing a simple script which uses luckyBackup to backup my /home directory to /tmp. I then want to tar it, encrypt it with gpg and move it onto a usb stick. My question is that suppose my hard disk died and I needed to restore from this USB backup, would I still be able to decrypt the file given that I would have lost gpg keys etc when the disk died? (I would still know the passphrase though). Should I be backing up gpg files separately?
have been trying for many hours to install Ubuntu 9.10, on a system that already had 9.10 installed on it at one point (so I know it should work!) I am using an alternate install, from a USB thumb drive. I use the alternate so I can encrypt the hd. Everything goes smoothly until I am to select extra packages to be installed. The only package I select is the ubuntu-desktop, and around 80% progress, or so, it fails. I then try and complete the base install, and then login to the command prompt and install there:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktopIt then requests the Ubuntu disc, which of course I don't have. It has a landline internet connection. Do I need to configure something to tell it to look to the mirrors to find the desktop? Or, should it have been included in my iso image originally
I use this line to line to archive and password protect my files (with zero compression):7z a -p -t7z -mx0 ~/Documents.7z ~/Documents In the attached picture, I notice there is a check box to 'Encrypt the file list too' via the GUI 7z method. How could I add this option to the above 7z line?
Also I think rar allows you to 'Encrypt the file list too'. Could someone also give me a rar line similar to 7z a -p -t7z -mx0 ~/Documents.7z ~/Documents but that has the 'Encrypt the file list too' feature added?
