    a) type in the passphrase to gain access.
    b) don't encrypt the hard drive during install.

    If you don't know "a", then don't expect to gain access to anything in the OS or data that is encrypted unless you are the NSA. I use 2FA for my encrypted installs - good luck getting in without both
    1) me
    2) my hardware device

    It might be possible to use the computer without accessing the encrypted storage by booting from a USB storage device. Depends on the boot order and BIOS settings for boot.

    How would the NSA go about decrypting this drive? Is there some way of rapidly trying brute force passwords against the encryption?
