Full disk encryption is coming

Works like a charm on my 3Gb CE!

I like you, Mobian team... and you too, pmOS team.

Password entry is osk-sdl

Awesome, looks like there are a few significant usability improvements in the osk-sdl pipeline!

Did I got this right. Does this method also work for Ubuntu Touch? Can someone confirm that it is working for Ubuntu Touch?

If the screen is locked is the drive encrypted?  Or is the data only encrypted when completely shutdown?

I believe it is unencrypted at the point where you enter your passkey and is not encrypted again until the phone is shut down. That would be consistent with the way full disk encryption operates on other Debian-derived systems.

By the way I really like the new and improved virtual keyboard for unlocking the disk that came in pretty recently in an update. With popups confirming keystrokes and a locking CAPS key it has a better feel than the regular Mobian keyboard (albeit with a restricted set of keys).
