RE: [school-discuss] Encryption Issue
If there are private keys stored on the machine then they are affected. A thin
client (eg. diskless workstation) can be affected if a user has entered their
passphrase and as a result an unencrypted private key is left on the system.
There is a simple rule in information security - if someone has physical access
to a machine then all security can be compromised.
So keep your computers secure.
