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: 1. Confirm the kernel module. 2. Install ecryptfs packages. 3. Add a passphrase to kernel keyring. 4. Create directories. 5. Mount the filesystem.
