Subject: Single User (single or multiple keyslots with similar or different passphrase)
Date: Mon, 21 Nov 2022 09:42:37 +0100 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw)
I am a single user and owner of the data in my laptop. I was wondering
if it is any better to have single or multiple keyslots with same or
different passphrases. I am using LUKS2 on a partition for root, home
and swap volumes (LVM). And LUKS1 for a boot partition. Please suggest
which of the following is better choice and why:
1. Should I have single passphrase and single keyslot for LUKS1 and LUKS2?
2. Multiple Keyslots for LUKS1 and LUKS2 with same passphrase.
3. Multiple Keyslots for LUKS1 and LUKS2 with different passphrase.
- My reasoning was that may be having redundant information, it helps in
times of crisis for recovery.
- Note: The data will be owned and used only by me.
Thanks and Regards
