I am used to building systems with LUKS on LVM and encrypting the boot parition containing GRUB2. Since moving to newer machines I am using UEFI.

Is it necessary to encrypt the EFI partition in the same fashion? Or are there built-in security features by design, of which I am currently unaware?

  • It never was mandatory. What do you really want to ask? – Rui F Ribeiro Jan 13 at 8:36
