GBDE-GEOM Based Disk Encryption
Poul-Henning Kamp, The FreeBSD Project
The ever increasing mobility of computers has made protection of data on digital storage media an important
requirement in a number of applications and situations. GBDE is a strong cryptographic facility for denying unauthorised access to data stored on a "cold" disk for decades and longer.GBDE operates on the disk(-partition) level
allowing any type of file system or database to be protected. A significant focus has been put on the practical
aspects in order to make it possible to deploy GBDE in the real world.
