Re: encrypting the users' folders
As with Windows NT security, it is false that no one can read the
data on the disk. If you boot with a proper rescue CD that can read
NTFS, then you can read everything, regardless of permission. In Mac
OS X you have the option to encrypt home directories, but there is
the possibility to have a master key to unlock everything, just in case.
From this one can learn two lessons: 1) windows security is flawed.
2) in unix systems you CAN encrypt home directories.
The point is how easy is to implement this security on the computer.
For this reason I use OSX in shared computers, and Debian on my
portable. I just don't know how to do it, even if I'm sure it can be
done. Discover which tool OSX uses to do the task and you are done.
