Cockpit 175

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 175.

Storage: Key management for encrypted devices

This release adds encrypted storage support for passphrases and network keyservers.

Under the hood, LUKSv1 manages encrypted devices, allowing up to 8 different key “slots”. Each slot may contain a passphrase or can provide NBDE by binding to a Tang server using Clevis.

In a future release, we’re planning to add key groups and more authentication types. Key groups bypass the 8 slot limitation and provide complex authentication rules. Stay tuned!
