  • Description: Short explanation of disc encryption in general. Then encrypting disks (or parts of it). (:
  • Language: German or english

Bring the laptop/PC you want to encrypt and an external harddisk if you are low on local disk space. Make sure you are able to boot from CD/DVD (If this is a problem I will provide a PXE boot environment). I will also bring some bootable CD-Rs (with grml and gparted).

Make a backup of your data before encrypting!
