Hands-On Lab

Understanding the steps needed to create and mount an encrypted filesystem is valuable, in order to keep data secure. In this hands-on lab, we will work with filesystem utilities to create a partition, encrypt it, and format it to make it available for mounting as an encrypted filesystem. At the conclusion, we will verify that the encrypted filesystem is ready for daily use by decrypting it, mounting it, using it, unmounting it, and then encrypting it again.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
