[libvirt] Fwd: libvirt secret support password or encryption keys?



FWD

Hi, all
PLS help, i'm reviewing man doc of libvirt secrets

# man virsh
...
SECRET COMMMANDS
       The following commands manipulate "secrets" (e.g. passwords, passphrases       -----> secret-set-value only support base64 "passphrases"
       and encryption keys).  Libvirt can store secrets independently from their              
       use, and other objects (e.g. volumes or domains) can refer to the secrets           
       for encryption or possibly other uses.  Secrets are identified using an
       UUID.  See <http://libvirt.org/formatsecret.html> for documentation of
       the XML format used to represent properties of secrets.
...

So, I want to know that if libvirt support other 2 kinds of "secrets". And if so, How to use password and encrytion keys ? If libvirt not support that, i will file a bug of this man doc.

Hi, Daniel

I saw your blog:http://berrange.com/posts/2009/12/02/using-qcow2-disk-encryption-with-libvirt-in-fedora-12/
and there is only "type=passphrases", so how can i use password or encrytion keys?
