I'm using disk encryption to protect my data and sensitive information - but only one partition.
I used to suspend my computer instead of shutting it down because of very fast resume and very low battery usage.
My question is: Is it somehow possible to access the temporarily decrypted data while my computer sleeps? or Is it insecure? Should I rather shutdown the computer instead of suspending ?
I'm using ecryptfs for encryption. So when I log in it uses my 27-long password to decrypt my data and when I log off or unmount the encrypted partition it wont be readable anymore. Probably logging off and then suspending the computer might be a solution but it isnt my question.
