I have used Full disk Encryption using LUKS. But with login the entire 
drive is unencrypted.

I want to lock some sensitive data (about 1 GB) and access it only when 
I want it. Is it recommended to create a LUKS container of 1.5 GB inside 
the partition? Is there any other best practice associated with LUKS 
container inside another LUKS device?

Note: I found the procedure at [LUKS Encrypted Container Chuck 
Nemeth](, which 
uses dd to create an image file and then encrypts it with LUKS.

Thanks and Regards
