Public bug reported: For the life of me I cannot get the parameter crypt:dev=/dev/vdb to work in /etc/overlayroot.conf.
I have tried the line overlayroot=crypt:dev=/dev/vdb,pass=somepass,mkfs=0 Which works when I create the LUKS device ahead of time, and set the passphrase 'somepass'. But when I try overlayroot=crypt:dev=/dev/vdb,mkfs=1 or just overlayroot=crypt:dev=/dev/vdb I get no overlay after reboot. I have also tried the "debug=1" parameter and I'm not getting any debug output either. Where are the logs and/or where should I be able to see the debug output? As Dustin has so eloquently documented, it defeats the privacy of your encryption if you have to specify the passphrase in clear text in your unencrypted read-only directory. So the only way I will be using this is if I can use the simple "overlayroot=crypt:dev=/dev/vdb" one-liner and have the passphrase generated automatically on boot. ** Affects: cloud-initramfs-tools (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New ** Tags: dm-crypt overlayroot -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1634310 Title: crypt:dev=/dev/vdb parameter does not work with randomly generated passphrase To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cloud-initramfs-tools/+bug/1634310/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
