I never did hard drive partition since it is done by my IT team. But I think logical partition of hard drive provides mechanism to create volume groups (VGs) and logical volumes from the volume groups. These logical volumes are managed by logical Volume Manager (LVM).

I have a running Fedora 21 system. I would like to make a backup of it to a USB drive, a clone that can be booted. I know how to do all the "normal" stuff (partition, LVM, mkfs, rsync, and GRUB), but I'd like the USB drive to be encrypted, and I don't know how to set that up manually (I haven't messed with encrypted filesystems under Linux before).

The system I'm backing is also headless, so no GUI tools. Any Pointers, tips, suggestions?
