    Phoronix: openSUSE's D-Installer Adds LVM & Full Disk Encryption Configuration

    One of the big undertakings this year within the (open)SUSE camp has been the YaST team's work on D-Installer as their next-generation operating system installer. This week they have published a new prototype of this installer with more functionality now in place...

    Something from "the internet" that D-installs your system and adds layers and encryption between you and the disk.

    That describes malware.

      On reading the documentation at the destination of a link in the YAST blog, I'm pleased to see it is proposing a design with LVM volumes inside an encrypted partition. I'll have to spin up an ISO to see how it handles /boot - to my mind, it should be encrypted. Interesting that they support LUKS2, as I don't think GRUB2 officially supports it yet - it's not planned to be included in the forthcoming GRUB2 2.12 - the Argon2 support is not decided. I know that current grub-probe doesn't support LUKS2 volumes.

        I've used this kind of encryption for years on openSUSE, but right now, it's broken, so this may not be the best timing:
