The encryption can include almost everything on the system such as temporary files and swap files. Unlike file encryption, where the decision of which files to encrypt is left up to the user, disk encryption removes the user’s ability to choose, thus making it more secure.

IPv6 transition mechanisms can use this kind of infrastructure to achieve a certain level of protection, even in the absence of IPv6 IPsec. Remote IPv4 hosts access private networks by establishing encrypted VPN access to a gateway device set up for this purpose. If the same host is capable of IPv6, it can break through an IPv6 tunnel over this…
