Will making Noise become a Crime?

Functional cryptography, meaning something that works, is feasible for the masses and suits a purpose. Spoiler: They (not only Germany) want to remove that right from you once again.

I remember, back then I used loop-aes for my whole disk encryption. I like this clean module, because it is fully functional. It fulfills the purpose of creating perfect noise over the whole block storage media. No cryptography header or anything else which could raise a flag. Why else would one apply whole disk-encryption if not to at least attempt full deniability? Conventional wisdom dictates that a system is compromised if hardware access has been achieved. Deniable disk encryption is one last resort in these cases. Sadly the Linux kernel community didn’t include this module in its base tree and one would suspect politics were the issue at hand. Instead, we have some soft disk encryption per default, which IMHO is useless as deniability can’t be achieved. Continue reading “Will making Noise become a Crime?”
