This sounds exactly as what I'm looking for! Let me see if I get it: as soon as I do login with my user password, the software automatically decrypt my very-personal-dedicated-disk-space (partition or file... I don't care) and I can read/write to it seamlessly. Right?Exactly. Bye, Axel.
hey thats brilliant!By the way I wrecked my ubuntu user account when I tried to remove the encryption from my home directory. There are likely files in you home dir which does not need to be encrypted, e.g. the haiku source tree. So I think its not the best idea to encrypt the whole home directory. Also its not very flexible or intuitive when playing around with encrypted data.
