I've ordered a new laptop and it has a fingerprint scanner built in.
Naturally I want to use it but I am required to encrypt my drive. Can the password be hacked from the fingerprint files?
Should I add a second layer of encryption for all work related documents?
I want to use fingerprint-gui to get it to work and I'll be running ubuntu 16.04.
I am aware of the possibility of lifting prints from anywhere of the laptop but I'm not going that far. All I want to know is what would happen if someone got physical access to my hard drive.
