I just installed Debian 9 with desktop environment to see if I can live using linux fairly exclusively. One item during the installation process to encrypt the LVM. I selected to do so and put in a passphrase. When the computer boots it prompts me for sda5_crypt passphrase as planned.
However, is the entire hard drive encrypted or is only certain part of it encrypted that allows it to boot the drive that contains Debian? In other words, is my HOME directory encrypted when my computer is shut off or do I need to go through other measures in encrypting sensitive parts of the hard drive/partitions OR with the "encrypted LVM" option during installation it encrypts my home directory, etc directory, var, lib, etc?
