Create and Mount an Encrypted Filesystem Using eCryptFS
In this lab you will create an encrypted directory using eCryptfs. Next, you will "mount" the directory in order to access files stored there.
You are working as a System Administrator at a large financial institution and have been tasked with creating an encrypted directory using eCryptfs on a user's workstation running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15. You will need to log into the remote workstation and complete the following tasks to accomplish this:
- Confirm the kernel module.
- Install ecryptfs packages.
- Add a passphrase to kernel keyring.
- Create directories.
- Mount the filesystem.
