"What can I use to encrypt my Linux filesystem?":

โ€“ LUKS/LVM supports full-disk encryption (and optionally 2FA)
โ€“ ext4 supports folder-based encryption
โ€“ eCryptFS/encfs are outdated/unmaintained
โ€“ GoCryptFS uses modern crypto but leaks metadata
โ€“ CryFS uses modern crypto and hides metadata but is slower than GoCryptFS

Thanks to Mr. Schumacher from Magdeburger Institut fรผr Sicherheitsforschung

Start them young I say. Donโ€™t wait to go FULL BSD like I did.

So, I'm working on enabling #FreeBSD's new (and incomplete) ASR implementation to live in the same source tree as #HardenedBSD's ASLR implementation.

This means that HardenedBSD users would be able to switch at boot-time which implementation they'd prefer.

Since FreeBSD's implementation doesn't randomize the stack and the shared page, I'll likely "borrow" HardenedBSD's implementation for that until FreeBSD implements these missing bits.

Today in history, Netscape Corporation was founded. I find it funny that a browser company that no longer exists was started on 4/04.
