I use both Windows 7 and openSUSE 12.2.
The system partitions are both secured at boot time (BitLocker and LVM).
I want to share data between OSes, but the data must be encrypted too.
I ran into TrueCrypt. Seems working very good. One problem: it will ask me for password at every boot. Since boot partitions are secured I'm comfortable in storing the password "plaintext" on an encrypted drive.
Linux part of the question
Then, is it possible to specify mount options in
fstab (that is, again, encrypted on system drive) to automatically provide password?
An alternate way of specifying the password is hard coding it in
mount.truecrypt script with
-p option, but has the disadvantage of requiring all drives using the same password
Windows part of the question
What about auto-mounting volumes in Windows at boot/login time without typing the password and without being asked for UAC?
