I wonder if it is possible to set up an encrypted "file container" on a CentOS VPS? I am the root user of the VPS but the hosting company also has access to the VPS and thus all files. Is it possible to create a LUKS-container on the VPS and those files only be accessible by me? IOW, most of the file system on the VPS would be regular file system but the container could be used by me as needed. This would allow the VPS to reboot normally, I could ssh in normally etc etc. I would rsync files as needed to this LUKS-container though.
