View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to make users with encrypted homes

February 16th, 2010, 01:08 AM
I want to create users with encrypted shares.

I know about "adduser -encrypt-home <user>" but it prompts me for a passphrase and I don't want to set one. I want the user auth to be enough, like my user is. I have no passphrase, I just authenticate my key and I'm in. Plus, the user directory doesn't get mounted automatically.

I looked all over the internet and there's no simple "just do this".

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks friend, but there's no automatic script to do this?
The ubuntu setup must have done this so I figured it would have included a script.

Thank you again.
