AW: [opensuse] Is there something like Debians Mandos for Opensuse?

The password is stored in encrypted form on the mandos server. So the encrypted
system can only boot unattended while it's in the same LAN segment as the
mandos server.
If somene steals the computer (or copies an encrypted VMs storage), then
they'll have to enter the password on boot.

As for porting it to openSUSE myself: I know there's been an effort to port it
to CentOS, I've asked the devs if there's some documentation on what has to be
changed to get it to run on a non-Debian system. if I get a reply I can try to
get it to run on openSUSE.

If you're up to it, it looks like an excellent opportunity to
participate. There is noone building a Mandos package for openSUSE atm.

I don't see how an encrypted root that automatically boots can be a good
thing. If somebody steals the machine, they can "open" it completely!

How does that Mandos does the trick, where is the password stored?
