  1. Most pressing I find encryption of laptop harddisks. I run Linux and so am minimally concerned about trojans stealing data, but if my laptop were stolen there are personally and commercially sensitive data that I would want to be unreadable.

    I would prefer to encrypt the entire drive (root partition included) and have found mixed reports as to the possibility of this, so I would like to hear the straight story on harddisk encryption.

    Thanks!

  2. @navaburo: I use LUKS for full-disk encryption (including the swap partition). It was an option in the Debian Etch installer so I didn’t need to configure anything, it was setup automatically.

    Of course, there are also other ways to do this. I haven’t looked at TrueCrypt, yet.
