"Getting a Notebook Computer seemed to be a good reason to me to start encrypting my disks. I new there was disk encryption code for Linux out there so I just had to patch it into the kernel."

"Surfing the web for this Linux disk encryption code I found out there is - unknown to the wide public - a LOT of code for this purpose out there."

"So I decided to write a small overview of the different aproaches for disk encryption. For myself I decided to use ppdd but I like ehd with kernel loopback encryption too, because it makes using disk encription on a system used by multiple persons very easy. Perhaps I should fiddle with ehd to work with ppdd."
