Any network segment that you don't fully control can be considered as a public network, so if you would encrypt traffic over a regular public network, do it for your case as well. NB: With full control I mean that you have full and sole control over any network devices that are part of the connection, so a port on e.g. a router or switch you don't own ...


Really, this is a non-issue. Copy the data on media of appropriate size, if ncessary encrypted, make a checksum, package it appropriately (depending on the media used, e.g. an optical disc doesn't need ESD shielding), ship it, decrypt and restore it, check with the checksum and you are done. If the checksum fails, rinse and repeat, with better packaging ...

Note, that the master key encrypted ...

"evms_activate not found" means that the /sbin/evms_activate file is not created inside the initrd file by update-initramfs So, my workaround consists in unpacking the not working initrd, and copy the evms_activate executable ...
