Laptop encryption

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone point me towards a good solution for laptop encryption? I think someone has just dropped a bollock..
  2. Go Paper based and lock them up at the end of each watch!

  3. Better than that ------buy a memory extension that plugs into a usb
    port --keep all your files etc on it .
    Wanna use laptop --plug in your memory and use. Finished with laptop
    remove your memory and keep it handy .[ Usually hanging around my neck on a string!!]
    All new files store on the memory extension.
    Laptop is then only for operating system requirements .

    Thinking about it more seriously, if you use a magic stick as advised, I think that if thelaptop is stolen it might still be possible for someone who thought it was worthwhile to recover some or all of any data used from the hard disc from the working copy, unless you have the means to write random noughts and ones all over the disc area used by temporary datasets. Depends on the applications package and what you are doing with it. However, you do insulate yourself from losing your prime set of data.
