Protecting Data with Encrypted Linux Partitions Part 2 - page 3
Adding Your Own Back Door
While most Linux distributions have a default
udev configuration that nails down the
/dev names of internal drives, it doesn't hurt to make extra sure by using the UUID instead. So the
/etc/fstab entry for our encrypted partition would look like this:
UUID=1c390791-bd8a-4655-b722-6d0bcbbdf547 /home/carla/crypted ext3 users,atime,noauto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 0
Note that all of that should be on a single line with no carriage returns or line breaks.
Where do you find the UUID? With the
# vol_id -u /dev/sda2 1c390791-bd8a-4655-b722-6d0bcbbdf547
