    Linux-based operating systems, if well configured, are really stable; however, since bad things can always happen, it is a good idea to regularly create backups.

  • How to unlock a LUKS volume on boot on Raspberry Pi OS

    LUKS (Linux Unified Key Setup) is the de facto standard encryption method used on Linux-based operating systems. As we saw in previous tutorials, when we want a partition or raw disk encrypted using LUKS to be automatically unlocked at boot, we need to enter a dedicated line into the /etc/crypttab file. Doing so, we are prompted to provide the encryption password interactively. This is quite straightforward on laptop or desktop machines, but how can we unlock a volume on an headless server? One solution is to use dropbear to get ssh access at an early boot stage, in the initramfs, in order to provide the volume password. In this tutorial we see how to use dropbear-initramfs to get ssh access at an early boot stage, in order to unlock a LUKS volume.
