Today I spent all the morning changing the encryption of my laptopÃ¢Â€Â™s home directory. Lately IÃ¢Â€Â™ve been trying Blowfish with blocks of 256bits, but found that it lags a lot my system under heavy load.
I used AES-256 before, and hadnÃ¢Â€Â™t such slowdowns. So today I decided to go from Blowfish back to AES.
I used a friendÃ¢Â€Â™s laptop to transfer my home directory. Then I format my /home partition with the new cipher and pulled back my personal files :)
(of course I shreded the files on my friendÃ¢Â€Â™s laptop ;-))
Now by beautiful beast is running back with AES-256 and HMAC-SHA1.
