I have a production server (Ubuntu, running 24/7) with a git repository and some client computers each with a working copy of this repository. In the client computers, simply using home folder encryption seems to solve the problem that in case of stolen hardware nobody can access the files in the git.
How can I encrypt the remote side of the git repository to make sure that in case of stolen hardware nobody can reconfigure and clone the git repository?
At first, I thought of encrypting the home directory of the git user, but then I realised that this wouldn't make any sense, since when and by whom should it be decrypted?
Can I put the git repository in my own home directory / link to it so it will only be available when I have logged into the server via SSH? Or is there a similar solution to this problem?
Thanks for any tips in advance!
