Blowfish Encryption for the Linux Kernel

[ Home | Recreation | Research Group | Institute ]
Note: This is old.

Strong encryption is important to improve privacy. Therefore I extended the Linux loop device by a Blowfish implementation that enables the use of fully encrypted disks. To use it, you also need a patched version of the mount utils (which will only compile when the new kernel is installed (at least the header files)).

There is also an international version of current Linux kernels containing crypto patches.
