I want to set up a development machine.
Since during the development there might be some sensitive data I will have to work on - intellectual property is the main issue. I would like to have a secure/encrypted system, so that if the machine gets into wrong hands, the data is still secure.
So the question is, how can I achieve that under Linux? I heard about TrueCrypt, but it seems that I can't do a boot time encryption. So I have to use some strategy with encrypted home folder + something else. In which case Ubuntu has something built in, no?
But the question is, how good is the built in system, and what happens with temp data, that is known to spill out of home directory into unencrypted directories.
Anyone have any suggestions?
