Change your LUKs-encrypted drive's passphrase

The default passphrase is available in the Dradis User Portal under Disk encryption. You may want to change your encrypted volume’s passphrase or password from time to time. To do so, run the following commands in the console as root:

$ cryptsetup luksChangeKey /dev/sda5

You'll be prompted to enter in the existing passphrase first, then to enter in your new passphrase and confirm the new passphrase.

root@dradispro:~# cryptsetup luksChangeKey /dev/sda5
Enter LUKS passphrase to be changed:
Enter new LUKS passphrase:

The next time you boot up your VM, you'll be prompted for the new passphrase.
