Hello, I'm a 100% novice, just started looking into using Linux this week.
I have a 16Gb USB stick and I want to put a live version of Linux on there but have the whole Linux operating system encrypted.
Background: I've managed to follow this guide to create a live USB which works on my machine, but it's not encrypted.
I would like all sensitive data on the USB stick to be encrypted in case of loss, so I want seamless whole filesystem encryption rather than an encrypted container or partition. The idea is that unless I deliberately save anything to the laptop internal HDD then everything I do in Linux will leave no trace unencrypted.
So what I'm asking for is a guide on how to get my problem solved, but the guide needs to be step by step as I'm a proficient Windows user but a complete Linux novice.
Many thanks in advance,
