    How to encrypt Readability data volume



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

    Encrypted data volume

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

    After you run the 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 :
