[clug] SSH Public key auth + Encrypted home dir

An interesting discussion. The first time I was aware of the issue was
actually on Mac OS X with a similar setup, didn't know until now that
Jaunty supports encrypted home directories - I take it that the
encryption is on a per user basis like OS X? How are they determining
the encryption key?

I don't really have any solutions, I'm just interested in the implementation.


On the day *I* go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be
heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but
develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone
will go superconductive.
