as you may have seen on my thread eee pc 1005ha wlan cracking capabilities
i am thinking (in the favor of yes) of buying an ASUS Eee PC 1005PE (i know it was a 1005HA in the other thread but this one has got longer battery life, and thats just too big of a plus to ignore for such a tiny increase in price), and as you may also have seen in the thread im "not" gonna do anything illegal with it, only experimenting with cracking "my own" wireless networks encryption/ETC, and therefore (and for the sake of it being really cool
... and just abit for protection if i should get caught - "without" a reason ofcourse) i am going make a full disk encryption on the HDD, but as i've been surfing around the interweb looking for information about FDE (or really i found out about it and then decided it would be really cool to do) ive seen a few people talking about the HDD's read/write speed slowing down abit, and also the general speed due to the CPU having to decrypt it ofcourse. ive gotten worried that the tiny 1005PE wouldn't be able to handle it without a major slowdown due to the small amount of CPU clocks/RAM.
so do you have any experience with FDE on an eee pc? or do you know anyone who has? or anything else?
by the way i'm gonna run (possibly dualboot) linux ( only, no windows
) and probably BT4 and dual boot ubuntu or just run ubuntu and install all the backtrack stuff. (this is not a discussion about the os!)
im thinking about using truecrypt for the FDE (this was the program i saw people talking about getting a slowdown with)this
is the guide i read
