While installing Ubuntu 18.04 server edition, the option "Use entire disk and setup encrypted LVM" is missing


So how do encrypt the entire disk while installing server edition?

  • I need to protect data-at-rest. It's standard protocol while using servers containing sensitive data. – PC. Nov 7 '18 at 3:17

I figured out the solution.

I was using ubuntu-18.04.1-live-server-amd64.iso which does not have this option. Encryption option is present in ubuntu-18.04.1-server-amd64.iso

The installers for live-server and server are entirely different.
