For added security it is a requirement that all laptops provided by the UEA use hard disk encryption.All Laptops that are set up with Ubuntu 14.04 installed as a minimum operating system, will be encrypted.

The user of each laptop will be given a unique password, which is to be be used when challenged after booting the machine.

The user can change the password by running the following command in the terminal.
uea-crypt-pass

If you do forget the encryption password then please inform the IT Linux team by emailing IT.Linux@uea.ac.uk
