How to unlock crypto root partition in Debian Linux over SSH (and more)

Early-ssh is a simple initramfs-tools hook script which provides an SSH server at boottime (in the initramfs) before the root filesystem gets mounted, so you will be able to do a numerous things, such as:

  • unlocking crypto devices – even your root can be an encrypted filesystem
  • assembling/altering mdadm RAID arrays
  • checking the root filesystem in read-write mode, taking action in case of errors
  • and so on… (if you have anything you wish to see here, please share it in a comment)

You can download the source code, and debian package here:
