Re: Full disk encryption during installation - with FIPS enabled

Unfortunately only CentOS 6 is approved for our government environment, with CentOS 7 undergoing review right now.

We also have a requirement to encrypt all data at rest so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Re: Full disk encryption during installation - with FIPS enabled

Hauling this topic out of mothballs in search of an answer.

I think in CentOS 7 you are able to enable FIPS mode during install at the same time you encrypt your partitions.

But not on CentOS 6. Any ideas for how this can be done at install time so that the OS partition can also be encrypted?

Re: Sendmail Not Honoring MX Record Weight

How would I go about verifying that they could?

Re: VMWare Resolution Issues

I seem to recall a guy posting something similar on these forums and what he/she had to do was increase the amount of VGA memory presented by the hypervisor (well past the default amount) - I think it's in the .vmx file. Worth a bash I guess. This turned out to be exactly right! Thank you so much! ...

The OpenSSL library is, therefore, reportedly affected by the following vulnerabil...
