Today we flashed another two #laptops with #coreboot in our #workshop at @daslabor during our spring(); break; event. 👩🏻💻 For the first time we had a non-Thinkpad device: a HP #EliteBook 2570p. There were still #blobs for the EC to be extracted though. Thanks to all participants!
"What can I use to encrypt my Linux filesystem?":
– LUKS/LVM supports full-disk encryption (and optionally 2FA)
– ext4 supports folder-based encryption
– eCryptFS/encfs are outdated/unmaintained
– GoCryptFS uses modern crypto but leaks metadata
– CryFS uses modern crypto and hides metadata but is slower than GoCryptFS
Thanks to Mr. Schumacher from Magdeburger Institut für Sicherheitsforschung
This means that HardenedBSD users would be able to switch at boot-time which implementation they'd prefer.

Today is a good day to remind us of the problems with #bundling dependencies for #software #distribution. Let's look at #Gentoo's and #FreeBSD's statements on the matter: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Why_not_bundle_dependencies#Problems
Today in history, Netscape Corporation was founded. I find it funny that a browser company that no longer exists was started on 4/04. #tbt
