What is the easiest way to encrypt a directory on a Ubuntu based system?
Let's say I have a laptop that is running Ubuntu 10.04, and on that I have some documents that should be kept safe (if I lose the laptop).
Let's say all to documents is in a dir called ~/work/, and nothing secret is outside this dir. So no need to encrypt the entire home dir.
There shall be a way to lock/unlock this dir from the command line.
There seem to be some different ways of doing this:
- truecrypt (however not OSI approved open source)
But what is the easiest and most reliable method?
