comment Is it possible to prevent a physical attack on full disk encryption?
@ClayFreeman if you're worried that someone can take you RAM module out, also consider that he can stick some wires and chips and read all data signals traveling between CPU and RAM. If data is encrypted inside RAM chips, but is decrypted when leaves the chip and goes "on plain" on your motherboard, there's almost no advantage in having RAM encrypted.

@ClayFreeman :) good luck, and tell us if you find other solutions. And just take care on which side your concentrating your efforts: in general, attacks come from online (due to soft bugs and misconfigurations) and from inside job. Stealing hardware just leaves too many traces.

Got it. But, well, for what you asked, I think that any answer would go about the physical aspect of it. If you're thinking about protect one VPS from another using disk encryption, perhaps you're going on the wrong way. If you'd like to chat about it, tell me and I'll be in the chat room.

I'm pretty sure fire will destroy it, if set hot enough and long enough. :)

if he did ask about security holes explitable by 3rd parts, I would agree with you. He asked about software that comes with keyloggers, virus...
