An Introduction to Disk Encryption

In this how-to and mini-workshop, we plan to cover the following topics:

  • a brief explanation of why you should care;
  • the different types of file and disk encryption;
  • basic walk-throughs on how to install and use some of the most common disk encryption systems;
  • a few key gotchas (or what not to do if you don't want to undermine the your freshly encrypted disk);
  • some thoughts on the intersections of steganography, plausible deniability and legal requirements for disclosure; and
  • links to other how-tos and resources
