Encrypting your Linux desktop/laptop?

Posted 2017-07-21 23:26:17 GMT

I opted to encrypt my home directory in Linux some time after setting up Ubuntu on my laptop. My home directory went flawlessly, however, it is also recommended that you encrypt your swap partition afterwards, and that did not go so swimmingly. Thankfully, this guide was able to help me out, and I was able to reboot with no further issues. Hopefully if you are unable to create an encrypted swap partition under Linux, this will help you too.

Happy Friday!
