This post describes how to encrypt the home directory of your users on GNU Linux with the help of TrueCrypt and PAM using the login-password as encryption key. I wrote about Automatic encryption of home directories using TrueCrypt before. This time we'll use TrueCrypt 6.0a which is a bit different from 4.3a used last time. Futhermore we'll use Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron instead of Debian Etch. For convenience this post will be selfcontained (ie. I copy redundant parts from the old one).
