Pre-Boot Disk Encryption - 01-08-2009, 10:01 PM
Considering its size and my paranoia, I am looking for a way to encrypt my mini9 running 8.10. I usually go with TrueCrypt because it allows me to work seamlessly with Windows, OS X, and Linux. However, my company recently started mandating that we use Safeboot (McAfee), and I rather like it. It is full-disk pre-boot encryption, i.e., you have to enter the decrypt password to get to the bootloader and load an OS.
My two big features are pre-boot and hidden containers (plausible deniability). Looking here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison ... n_software it would appear that BestCrypt supports both of these (although not unfortunately OS X). However, looking at BestCrypt's website I don't see any mention of pre-boot support for Linux.
Anyone out there familiar with this type of thing and have recommendations? Thanks!
