Offline copy of

Sun Oct 30, 2016 11:50 am

I have bookmarked the following two websites for a full disk encrypted pi setup (wheezy) which I have running on two sites. While the [1]st is still up and I in fact also have an offline copy, the [2]nd remains offline (the domain isn't even registered anymore!). As far as I can remember [2] contained a larger part on how to get rid off "no so useful" packages in wheezy and managed around the "failed first boot" of [1].

I was wondering if anybody here has an offline copy of [2] (or contact details of the author). I would greatly appreciate if you could make this copy available. Any recent links on full disk encryption for jessie are also very welcome. Thank you.

Have you checked the Internet Archive, sometimes called the Way back Machine?

Also this might be of interest but it talks about folders not disks.

There is lots of prior discussion in these forums as to why the search for data security on an RPi is likely to be fruitless.

Thank you for your reply. Of course I checked the way back machines: no entry.

The encryption approach for selected folders/files is technically very different (encryptfs vs. dmcrypt), but thank you for the link.

Regarding your general question on how much encryption of the pi is usefull at all I'd appreciate links to the mentioned discussions. I don't see any difference to a x86 machine in this regard and still would consider the approach usefull.
