    Ubunut 20.04 Auto Install Encrypt Drive

    Hi All

    I have setup a autoinstall of ubunut 20.04 but i was wondering if it is possible to have the auto install encrypt the drive in some way.
    I am try to avoid someone taking the drive out and the machine and sticking it in another machine and reading the data off it

    Thanks
    Adam

    Hi Adam
    I'm not a cybersecurity expert but this answer which is a common-sense driven response might help you.
    To prevent access to the personal data which is presumed to be stored in the Home folder can be done in two ways.
    1. Strong login password
    2. Lock the Home folder using the root password.

    Hope this might help.
    With regards

    I have to disagree with the above post.
    With physical access to the machine only full drive encryption prevents access to the data.
