Full disk ecryption like ubuntu

I am searching so much but never find a way to encrypt full disk encryption with Tinycore. Any Suggestions

Thanks in Advance

ubuntu doesn't do full disk encryption, boot loader and kernel are unencrypted.

Thanks for reply hiro, Sir full disk encryption is available in ubuntu 14.04 as you say that only boot loader and kernel are unencrypted. I do the same with Tinycore

You can easily set up e.g. an encrypted home dir, see the cryptsetup.tcz extension.
I don't recommend the ubuntu way. Instead manually set up multiple separate security levels protected by different passphrases, and only one encrypted partition should be mounted at the same time.
You could have tinycore on a flash drive and make it mount the crypted drives on boot asking you for a passphrase to access the disks that would otherwise be useless to other people.
The stick would also be useless cause it only has tinycorelinux and official packages. You'd put your private data on the crypted home dir that is not available without the other disk + passphrase.

Notice also that you can always manually load additional packages from crypted partitions.
tce-load -i /home/mrfearful/tce/secret-appz.tcz

This means you can keep the publicly visible portion of packages to a minimum if you need.
