Truecrypt on a read-only VM
02/20/12 at 16:49:57
 
It is my objective to create a completely secure storage system. I want to use a truecrypt encrypted virtual drive contained in a read-only virtual machine. In theory, this setup should render the data within completely and utterly impossible to acquire without the proper password and keyfile. I have not used VMware before so I do not know how to set-up a read only virtual machine. Google has given me nothing of use, I need your help.

Not sure you can permanently set a virtual machine to be read only. You could always just modify the settings later on, to make it read write.

You can however set disks to be non-persistent. Changes written to the disk are discarded when the machine is powered off/rebooted.

Hope that helps.

Wouldn't that eliminate any files in the truecrypt drive that would be ported over as soon as the VM is shut off? Huh
