I have Ubuntu Linux installed on my laptop, and I need to use some level
of encryption on (some of) the contents of the storage.
It's a dual-boot with Windows, I don't need the Windows partition
encrypted. Currently the Linux installation uses a single partition, I
can either encrypt that OR split off the contents of /home to a new
partition and just encrypt that.
Is it possible to just encrypt a single partition / filesystem like
this? Or is it better to encrypt the whole disk? Is encrypting the whole
disk compatible with Linux/Windows dual-boot? What is the recommended
method/software/tools for this?
Thanks for your help.
