Securely boot Debian with encrypted disk

Just found this HowTo via Planet Debian:
https://www.meebey.net/posts/secure_usb … th_debian/
It explains, very clearly, how to put /boot on a usb stick and encrypt everything else so your laptop is almost uncrackable.

Re: Securely boot Debian with encrypted disk

Thanks John! I'm going to actually attempt this over the week. I need to really cement in my head the secure boot/UEFI/encrypted booting process.... I can't believe after all this time,  the Grub/Boot/MBR/EFI/BIOS  relationship still scares me....

The linked guide will not help you with that, it is not UEFI or Secure Boot compatible and both will have to be disabled for the guide to work.

I have edited the OP's subject to read 'securely boot' and not 'secure boot' as that tripped me up, too.
