Security implications of large CGD?

Hi NetBSD users,

I'm about to create a CGD volume larger than 1 TB.

I seem to remember reading something about OpenBSD and their full disk
encryption several years ago and that you should not create a
volume larger than 1 TB with their scheme. If I remember correctly it
was due to implementation limitations, but then again I don't trust my
memory any more.

Or are there any problems overall with a volume larger than 1 TB
encrypted with aes-cbc and 256 b key that a layperson like me can't
see? I mean I'm neither a cryptographer nor a mathematician...


If you don't shoot the bearers of bad news, people will keep bringing it to you.
