For a kernel level encryption system check out:


It looks like this is no longer supported by the authors since
the patches are for linux-2.0.11.  I have created a set of
patches for 2.0.27 - 2.0.32.  I did some testing for 27-30
but I have not even compiled 2.0.31 or 2.0.32.  At the moment
I am having some reliability problems with my motherboard
and I don't want to mess with encrypted filesystems until
I resolve my hardware problems.
