Full disk Encryption

  8 years ago

For those who are more concerned with security. Mint should offer while installing a full disk encryption. (LUKS maybe .. )

I know that this "idea" is old, but... it is not full disk encryption in fact. /boot partition is outside the crypted area.

I Agree!
I also think that the encryption key should have the option of loaded from an external usb disk. That way you could use a 128-bit key without having to type it in at startup.

There is no need to encrypt the whole disk as it is only /home and possibly /opt & /data that holds data. Encrypting /, /bin & /usr will slow down the system without making it more secure
