Meeting Presentation
Our own Brian Miller will present disk encryption on Linux!  

"How safe is your information from prying eyes?  Worried about
some thief having access to your files?  Find out how easy it is
to encrypt your local hard drives using LUKS, and what protection
that encrypted drive really gives you.  Then we will move on to
keeping your cloud-based backups secure, using duplicity."

As always, feel free to bring with you any ailing or problematic
systems for expert diagnosis (or destruction).

The upcoming meeting is open to the general public, and all with
an interest in Linux, Free Software, Open Source Software,
security, encryption, Windows, BSD, Unix, etcetera are invited.

There are no dues or fees.

The July meeting will be held at

    Columbus, OH 43219
