What is a TPM, and Why Does Windows Need One For Disk Encryption?

BitLocker disk encryption normally requires a TPM on Windows.
Microsoft’s EFS encryption can never use a TPM. The new
“device encryption” feature on Windows 10 and 8.1 also
requires a modern TPM, which is why it’s only enabled on new
hardware. But what is a TPM?

I'm getting a new laptop in a week or so and wondering which way to go
as far as encryption. The two options seem to be full disk via the
alternate and/or home disk.
I'm looking to secure my personal
data without interfering with performance as much as I can. I'm
leaning toward the home folder encryption, but I was wondering if I'd
be missing a major benefit by not going with full disk.
Any
opinions on this?
What are most laptop users going with?

Hi All,
I'm planning to rebuild my Ubuntu home server, thinking
about using disk encryption. Sorry if the following sound like daft
questions...
Can anyone tell me if Samba shares will still be
usable if the disk is encrypted?
If I encrypt my external backup
disks, is there a utility available that will allow them to be read
under Windows XP?
Thanks
Ubuntu
i have recently wanted to dedicate a drive to full disk encryption on
my main computer.. i did a install from the alternate x64 11.04 cd and
picked full disk encryption and encrypt home directory..
sad to
say that my main computer would not run Ubuntu 11.04 ( i think it has
to do with my ati video card.)
so i pulled out a old p4 3ghz and
did full disk encryption on it
but i forgot to encrypt the home
directory at install..
now there is no option to encrypt the home
directory if i make a new user.
am i missing something?
is
it not possible to encrypt the home directory if the disk is fully
encrypted?
is that th
Ubuntu

I've encrypted my disk using the Lubuntu disk encryption on
installation and also used the Home folder encryption option. I wonder
whether this adds security or if the home folder encryption is
redundant since I've encrypted the disk.

Windows 10 sometimes uses encryption by default, and
sometimes it doesn’t — it’s complicated.
Here’s how to check if your Windows 10 PC’s storage is
encrypted and how to encrypt it if it isn’t. Encryption
isn’t just about stopping the NSA — it’s about
protecting your sensitive data in case you ever lose your
PC.
