Does anyone have zimbra running under an encrypted hard drive?
If so, how does it perform? Did you face any problems with it?
From a performance perspective it would depend on how you are going to encrypt the drive under Linux ... Which product are you looking to use ?
Out of curiosity why would you want to encrypt the hard of a server ? Do you want to encrypt the whole disk including system partition or just a single mountpoint ?
Everything except boot ofcourse.
The company i work for is going to do some work for the government and will work with very sensitive data. In order to avoid possible hackers accesing our emails as plain text i plan on encrypting the hard drive.
I plan to use the linux encryption method (dm-encrypt).
Do you have any experience with other encryption methods?
The problem is that Zimbra will need to be able to access the emails; therefore the key will have been entered to decrypt the drive. If a hacker gains access to the server then everything will be in clear text anyway. What it does stop is somebody stealing the server or harddrives and gaining access to them.
