I'm wondering what information might be leaked from the ecryptfs filesystem. This is what Ubuntu uses if you check the box for "encrypted home directory" when using the desktop installer, so is ...
I'm taking Prof. Boneh's crypto class from Coursera, and am unsure on the requirement for XTS mode for disk encryption. It seems that CTR mode would do exactly what XTS can do, but is simpler to ...
How can disk encryption systems (like Truecrypt) resist frequency analysis when they allow random access?
I don't understand how disk encryption (e.g. TrueCrypt) is supposed to resist frequency analysis. If blocks can be randomly accessed (which they can), doesn't that mean that frequency-domain ...
I've posted this question over at superuser, but haven't had any success at getting answers. That's why I've posted it here. Furthermore, I believe this is a more appropriate place for it as it is ...
Is it possible to tweak AES-GCM so that it is satisfactory for whole-disk encryption (like XTS mode)?
Is it possible to leverage a preexisting implementation of AES-GCM to provide the key security benefits essential for full-disk encryption (similar to AES-XTS)? GCM is a popular encryption mode ...
When having a company computer that is full disk encrypted, it is common that the boss have a master password / backdoor, so the data always can be decrypted. I have heard some call this for "scrow" ...
