This is the server part of the Mandos system, which allows
computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the
same time be capable of remote and/or unattended reboots.
The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM
disk environment which will communicate with a server over a
network.  All network communication is encrypted using TLS.
The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP
key; each client has one unique to it.  The server sends the
clients an encrypted password.  The encrypted password is
decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the
password is then used to unlock the root file system,
whereupon the computers can continue booting normally.

mandos (1.6.9-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* debian/control (Build-Depends): Fix "still uses GnutLS 2.x" by
changing from "libgnutls-dev" to "libgnutls28-dev | gnutls-dev"
(Closes: #762349)
2014-08-06 - Teddy Hogeborn <>
mandos (1.6.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* debian/control (Source: mandos/Build-Depends-Indep): Since upstream
now requires Python 2.7, depend on exactly the python2.7 package and
all the Python 2.7 versions of the python modules.
(Package: mandos/Depends): - '' - but still depend on python (>=2.7)
and the generic versions of the Python modules; this is for mandos-ctl
and mandos-monitor, both of which are compatible with Python 3, and
use #!/usr/bin/python.
2014-07-17 - Teddy Hogeborn <>
mandos (1.6.7-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
2014-07-13 - Teddy Hogeborn <>
mandos (1.6.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* debian/mandos.postinst: Fix typo in comment.
* debian/control (mandos/Recommends): Changed to "ssh-client | fping".
(mandos-client/Recommends): New; set to "ssh".
2014-06-06 - Teddy Hogeborn <>
mandos (1.6.5-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/control (mandos-client/Depends): Add "dpkg-dev (>=1.16.0)";
initramfs-tools-hook runs "dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_MULTIARCH".
(Closes: #750221)
2014-05-13 - Teddy Hogeborn <>
mandos (1.6.5-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/rules (override_dh_auto_test-arch): New; does nothing.  Fixes
FTBFS for build-indep.
2014-05-11 - Teddy Hogeborn <>
mandos (1.6.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* debian/copyright: Change year to "2014".

dependencies of "mandos" package to "Build-Depends-Indep".

edit /etc/init.d script headers Required-Start
and Required-Stop to have "avahi" instead of
"avahi-daemon", before insserv(8) sees it.
