• Encrypted Antergos - Swap in plaintext


    I’m very happy about my recently installed Antergos Laptop. I selected an encrypted installation for my Laptop.
    Today I checked how the system is booting and found out that the Swap partition which is used for hibernate as well appears to be not encrypted.

    This is quite a security issue. An attacker could boot the system from another media and analyze the contents of the swap space to find the private key used for the encrypted file system and probably all file cached content.
    Did I overlook something in the graphical installer to encrypt swap as well?

    Kind regards,
