I'm trying to test the feasibility of an idea:
I want to encrypt a laptop's hard drive in its entirety. I was planning on doing this by having /boot on a partition on a removable usb stick. As long as the host laptop supports booting of USB I see no reason why this wouldn't work. It is not the most elegant of solutions though. Are there any other suggestions on how I might achieve this? The only condition I have is that everything stored on the laptop hard drive must be encrypted.
