@grawity: yes, a hardware key logger would get the encryption password, but not they key file that resides on the usb stick.

comment Linux (Ubuntu) USB Auth
Good points... I'm marking your answer as correct just for all the good info. It seems like I can accomplish what I want using TrueCrypt and running full-disk encryption and putting the boot loader on a usb stick. No USB = no decrypting the drive. And as far as key loggers... If someone has physical access to the machine they could install a hardware key logger. USB device that goes inline between the keyboard and the computer... undetectable unless you actually look behind the machine.

That's true, but I'm trying to require the USB. As in, if someone was to install a keylogger and get the password, they still cannot gain access without the physical device.

I don't know for sure, but I would assume a few reboot cycles would have it down. By the way, if this answer was helpful please click the check mark to mark it as correct.
