Public key encryption is really only useful if you want to have other people encrypt messages to you, and you don't want to go to the trouble of secretly giving them your secret encryption key. So you post your public key for the world to see and encrypt messages to you, that only you can read. It would be of no benefit to you personally encrypting your ...

Unix philosophy favors composability over monolythic design. In this sense, your problem can be split into two separate problems: - How do I bundle a folder into a single file suitable for sending? You can do that with tar command: tar zcf ./myfiles.tar.gz ./myfolder/ - How do I encrypt a single file? There's already an answer for that. For example: ...

Unfortunately, the keyboard layout DOES matter. :( On bootup, you start with the US Keyboard layout. As your filesystem is decrypted (entering the correct password), any settings changing keyboard layout (such as you changing it to Swedish Keyboard Layout) will be applied.

Looks like I was wrong about it being an issue from somewhere else, it actually wasn't a corruption issue! Fixed via this answer: After some fiddling about, I was able to reclaim a large amount of space with tune2fs: wim@wim-ubuntu:~/Desktop$ df -h | grep sdc /dev/sdc1 1.8T 1.7T 352M 100% /media/data wim@wim-ubuntu:~/Desktop$ sudo tune2fs ...

I tried some experimenting with a 10MB file, using cryptsetup to "luksFormat" and "luksOpen" it (then used gparted on the /dev/mapper/xxxx device to create a MBR & partition & format it - I'm not sure if that's how a standard disk encryption works, or if it just formats the /dev/mapper/xxxx device & mounts it). Then I can use dmsetup ls to see ...

When trying to mount a remote Ubuntu FDE drive while your current Ubuntu installation is also using FDE, both LVMs will have the same Volume Group name ubuntu-vg. This makes the second drive with the same volume name inaccessible do to a naming clash. This can be resolved by renaming the Volume Group name of the remote FDE drive: Boot to a live instance ...
