Upgrading my personal security, part two: disk encryption and secure boot

This is a continuation of my previous post about upgrading personal security. This post focuses on preventing evil maid attacks using disk encryption and secure boot.

With this post, I compiled and summarized all of the resources I used to do all of this configuration. The hope is that having a set of steps in one place reduces the need to go hunting across different Reddit posts, blog posts, and wiki articles as I did.

Upgrading my personal security, part one: password generation, 2FA, YubiKey

I’m someone who’s been reasonably technical for a long time, but was not really interested in security until about a year and a half ago. This means I had a lot of configuration set up for convenience, but without much in the way of security.
