Tomorrow, October 25th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear Orr
Dunkelman talk about:

      Secure File Systems

Abstract

In this talk I shall cover two concepts related to protecting your
information, cryptographic file system and steganographic file system.
A cryptographic file system is a file system where the data stored is
encrypted by the operating system (thus, protecting the
confidentiality of the information in case the hard disk is taken
away). A steganographic file system is a file system which is hidden
from prying eyes, namely, that a person holding the hard disk cannot
even find the files.

The talk will describe some of the technical aspects of these file
systems, including a bit of the concepts of how they work, and the
problems they may cause. Then, as much as possible, we shall discuss
their implementations in Linux.

The talk will not assume crpytographic knowledge, even though, it
won't hurt you to know a bit before hand.

======================================================

We meet in Taub (CS Faculty) building, room 6. For instructions see:
