Re: Mint 17.X, 18.X, 19.X and 20.X (but also Ubuntu) Full Disk Encryption (directory /boot included)

Hello dobp, I have read your last post. At the moment I am working on a new solution for Dual Boot Windows 10 + Linux Mint FDE. As explained in my tutorial at https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2191 the new solution will be: Dual boot for Windows 10 + Linux Mint 20.X with EFI STUB loader ...

Re: Mint 17.X, 18.X, 19.X and 20.X (but also Ubuntu) Full Disk Encryption (directory /boot included)

Hello questionbot, if you have installed my FDE tutorial 2438 PC UEFI + HDD GPT + EFI STUB + tutorial 2496 (ex 2360, Secure Boot) you can do these test: 1) Temporary disable Secure Boot and try to boot your system. 2) If your system boot normally with Secure Boot disabled check if you have correctly...

FDE from my tutorial 2061 PC UEFI + HDD GPT + GRUB ? or FDE from my tutorial 2438 PC UEFI + HDD GPT + EFI STUB ? Please tell me more about your FDE installation and the errors you get. Regard...

Hello stussy1. I have read your message and the response from cozyknight, who explain the most important issues of the standard FDE, available from Ubiquity. Also the main problem is: Can we set up a PC with a security level that make our system invulnerable ? The answer is NO ! We can only build a ...

Hello dobp. I have read your message and, as you said in your EDIT note, the problems with GRUB is the most important reason because I have switched to EFI STUB. In my past tutorial concerning Linux FDE I was always dealing with GRUB with great difficulties. So when I switched to UEFI I have found a...

Re: Mint 17.X, 18.X and 19.X (but also Ubuntu) Full Disk Encryption (directory /boot included)

Hello dobp, I have read your message. About your last questions my opinion is: 1) I think I must explain something about LINUX KERNEL, GRUB and other Ubuntu/Mint packages marked as "Signed". These packages have files that are signed by the distro manufacturer company, but ONLY for Windows system. So...

Re: Mint 17.X, 18.X and 19.X (but also Ubuntu) Full Disk Encryption (directory /boot included)

Hi dobp, I think I have solved the problem. VB set an udev rule in file "/etc/udev/rules.d/60-vboxdrv.rules". Here VB tell to the kernel to load its kernel modules required at boot-up. The contents of /etc/udev/rules.d/60-vboxdrv.rules should be something like that: --- KERNEL=="vboxdrv", NAME="vbox...

Re: Mint 17.X, 18.X and 19.X (but also Ubuntu) Full Disk Encryption (directory /boot included)

Hello dobp, I have done a small step forward to solve the problem. I do not know how VB load its kernel modules but if it uses modprobe that can be a problem. I have signed the VB kernel modules with the "scripts/sign-file" script and loaded them with insmod before running VB. In this way VB run als...

Re: Mint 17.X, 18.X and 19.X (but also Ubuntu) Full Disk Encryption (directory /boot included)

I think it would be better to find a better solution, i.e. signing the VB modules with our own UEFI custom keys (i.e. these of tutorial 2360). So I am on the run for testing 3 different methods for getting VB working with Secure Boot enabled: 1) trying to sign the VB modules with "kmodsign" 2) tryin...

I have also tried to build the system with only 2 LUKS partition (1 for swap and 1 for the filesystem), leavi...

Re: Physical volume for encryption - won't install

Hello artefice, I have read your message. I will test your configuration with a VM the next days.

I will answer your question within the end of September.

Please post the screenshot of your partition page taken before the error.

See you soon on this topic.

It also works on my only PC NUC6i5SYH equipped with a SSD M.2 NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD 960 PRO 512GB. In this PC it also works with Secure Boot en...

Hello lofi, I do not know the meaning of the last 2 line you get after your upgrade, but I think you should install the updates via mintUpdate. When you run commands like apt-get upgrade you can get an incomplete satisfaction of all dependencies. In my experiences with the FDE installation described...
