Dovecot encryption plugin

Requirements

  • Ensure GCC and the header files for libcrypto (OpenSSL) and libxcrypt are installed.

Installation

  • Use make dovecot-install to download and build dovecot 2.2.21 in a sub-directory. It's a local installation and your system wont be affected.

  • Type make all to compile the plugin.

  • Find the plugin at dovecot/target/lib/dovecot/lib18_scrambler_plugin.so.

Tests

  • Ensure the ruby version manager is installed.

  • Install ruby version 2.1.x with command rvm install 2.1.

  • Install the bundler gem with gem install bundler.

  • Install the gem bundle with bundle install.

All tests are written with RSpec and can be run with make spec-all or bundle exec rake spec:integration

Configuration

In order to run, the plugin needs the following configuration values (via the dovecot environment).

  • scrambler_plain_password The plain user password. It's used to derive the hashed password to decrypt the private key.

  • scrambler_enabled Can be 1 or 0.

  • scrambler_public_key The public key of the user. Formatted as pem.

  • scrambler_private_key The encrypted private key of the user. Formatted as pem.

  • scrambler_private_key_salt The salt of the hashed password that has been used to encrypt the private key.

  • scrambler_private_key_iterations The number of iterations of the hashed password that has been used to encrypt the private key.

A configuration example can be found at dovecot/configuration/dovecot-sql.conf.ext.erb.

Migration

The migration of unencrypted mailboxes has to be done by a separate tool and is not part of this project.
