    How to encrypt Readability data volume

    Follow

     

    Note: This process is only for our Ubuntu VM Appliance.

    Encrypted data volume

    Upload and run the attached script (encrypt-lvm-volume.sh) via your ftp tool to encrypt the data volume. This will encrypt using AES cipher and a default password “password”.

    After you run the encrypt-lvm-volume.sh script you can verify that the volume was successfully encrypted by running:

    sudo crypsetup status encrypted-db

     

    If successful, you should see :

     

     /dev/mapper/encrypted-db is active and is in use.
       type:       LUKS1
     
       cipher:     aes-xts-plain64
       ....
     

     

     

    To change the encryption password, run:

    sudo cryptsetup luksChangeKey /dev/mapper/visiblethread-vtdata

     

     

    From now on when the system boots up, an IT admin must have access to the VM terminal to provide the password to decrypt the disk :
