Using Ubuntu 14.04 with the usual LAMP stack on Azure for testing purposes and the Azure Security Center is asking us if we want to encrypt our virtual machines
My thoughts are why not as one never have enough security, I mean our courses have content that would definitely be of interest to GCHQ and the NSA
Anyway on a more serious note has anyone encrypted their VMs using DM-Crypt? or are there any people using Azure VMs?
Here is the actual message:
""Azure Disk Encryption is a new capability that lets you encrypt your Windows and Linux Azure Virtual Machine disks. Azure Disk Encryption leverages the industry standard BitLocker feature of Windows and the DM-Crypt feature of Linux to provide volume encryption for the OS and the data disks. The solution is integrated with Azure Key Vault to help you control and manage the disk encryption keys and secrets in your key vault subscription, while ensuring that all data in the virtual machine disks are encrypted at rest in your Azure storage."
