Johannes -
Regarding 'Mamba': if FDE is already in place, can Mamba encrypt over it?

Hello Johannes, I didn't try this scenario, but I think so. The encryption process occurs while the user is logged on and the filesystem is "open". In my opinion, in this case, Mamba could encrypt the partition (even already encrypted) and overwrites the MBR with it's own and ask for the password during the boot.
