5.2. Utilize LUKS Partition Encryption

Since Fedora 9, implementation of Linux Unified Key Setup-on-disk-format(LUKS) encryption has become a lot easier. During the installation process an option to encrypt your partitions will be presented to the user. The user must supply a passphrase that will be the key to unlock the bulk encryption key that will be used to secure the partition's data.
Fedora 8, however, does not have LUKS support built-in; however it is easily implemented. Step-by-step procedures are available that allow the user to implement partition encryption on their Fedora 8 installation.
