Stratis Storage 2.3 Released With Clevis Encryption Policy Support
Stratis is Red Hat's effort around improving Linux storage capabilities and features similar to ZFS and Btrfs but building atop Linux's LVM capabilities and XFS file-system while providing clean integration and interfaces around the advanced features exposed.
New with Stratis 2.3 is supporting Clevis encryption policies. Clevis is an automated encryption framework to support a pluggable means of automated decryption and unlocking of LUKS volumes. The initial Clevis use-case from the Stratis perspective appears to be around Network Bound Disc Encryption (NBDE) in allowing encrypted volumes be bound to a special network server.
The rest of the Stratis 2.3 changes appear to be around general improvements and fixes.
Stratis 2.3 can be downloaded from GitHub.
