create encrypted backup of files to data dvd

Postby BlackVeils on Mon Jan 13, 2014 5:15 pm

i am interested to know of any reliable methods which still work.

this is for the sake of personal privacy, nothing else. i would like decent encryption. i dont mind commands, as i only want to do this once or rarely, as an extra backup. preferably something not too complex, as i like to understand the commands i am running, and since i dont have a passion for this stuff, i tend to lose focus.

thanks

cryptkeeper works well although I haven't used it with an external drive. It should work though as the drive will have the same name and location every time you plug it in. Even if it doesn't, you can add a drive to it and decrypt it provided you remember the password.

i'd like to do this:

but it seems outdated, could someone translate this into a modern working method? i've researched and surprisingly cant find any working method for encrypting files to put onto external storage, except for drive encryption, which is not an option for creating a data dvd.

thanks

Hi,
you should learn about cryptsetup and LUKS, cause it is a generic block device encryption tool.

here is a step by step guide for your dvd:
