RE: Hide disk in linux

In Solaris, I would:

- Make hardware probing commands as restricted as possible (like drvconfig, devfsadm or prtdiag)
- recreate the disk/slice/volume special files.
- Mount the filesystems and perform the backup.
- remove the disk/slice/volume special files.

I really don´t know the exact commands to perform this on Linux, but I´m quite sure thats prossible.

In solaris I could go way further, like erasing/recreating scsi controller definitions (sd.conf).

Good Luck,

Filipe Litaiff

Subject: Hide disk in linux


Hi everyone,

I need to hide a disk device in linux. I want make a disk to disk backup, for example with dd utility

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb bs=1k conv=sync,noerror

but I want that this disk can't mounting by anyone. Is this method to make disk to disk backup correct? It have any 
problem?
I don't like that a possible hacker can mount disk device and get information from the backup disk.
The system has installed LIDS on the primary disk, but backup disk (secondary) is not affected.

Can anyone help me about how to hide the secondary disk to can't mount?

Thank's in advance
