Full Disk Encryption (FDE)
Using Segate FDE
Using FDE as as easy as setting up the hard disk password (from BIOS). You can choose to have just a user password, or both a user and a master password. You can export the key to an external storage, for password recovery (you need the password !!)
Three possibilities :
- Use the master password to change the user key.
- Recover the password using the previously exported key.
- Reset the encryption key (which causes the hard disk to be instantly "wiped", and resets the "hard disk password").
Wipe the disk
Wiping the disk is as easy as reseting the encryption key from the BIOS..
It should be possible to use TPM (with fingerprint readers...) not tested yet.
