• Help me Understand Encryption


    Hi,

    I recently did a fresh install of Antergos, and I’ve been using Linux for less than a week; I have no previous knowledge of Linux. On install I chose to encrypt the home folder for added security. When booting, I’m asked for my encryption password, but right after it asks me for a password for /home again and I enter my encryption password again. After this, I must enter my User Password 3 additional times to boot. I can login and boot, but I want to understand what’s going on.

    What is the system doing and why does it require my Encryption password 2 times and my User password 3 times?
