Has anyone had any experience with setting up encrypted file systems on
Ubuntu or other distributions? I am wondering if it is rocket science,
or needs to be performed at install. I am interested in the standard
/var /home /tmp encryption to protect against casual theft or loss of a
netbook or laptop of personal information.
I have turned up a few sites on the net but all seem complicated. I am
wondering if Karmic Koala (next Ubuntu version) will support this out of
the box so I should wait, or dive in and do it now.
Also wondering if encryption will break suspend or hibernate which would
really suck, as I really like the suspend to RAM working on my fancy new
Ubuntu netbook when I close the screen.
