Encryption of a Linux VPS (Ubuntu 18.04 and Centos 7)

Encryption should be done as easy as possible and as secure as possible: military grade, at least AES256.

Option A)

Encryption of whole VPS/instance and entering a password during boot.

Option B)

Encryption of all data on the VPS/instance, means MySQL/MariaDB databases, logfiles, home directories (e.g./var/www/vhost). Email not important. The complete process to start the encrypted directories has to be managed with a shell script.

After the work is done from you on a testing VPS (sandbox) and works fine, I need a complete description how to do that, as I have to do that on other instances myself. Also some services have to be started again after linking the encrypted partitions.

We are using Ubuntu 18.04 and Centos 7. Both with Plesk.

All machines are running in a virtual environment with KVM.

Using of VeryCrypt or similar would be great, or LUKS.

Skills: Ubuntu, System Admin, Encryption, CentOs, Plesk
