comment How can I destroy data on a failed hard disk without voiding warranty?
@JoelCoel: No, that's not true. If the drive is properly encrypted, a brute force attack is (phyically) impossible - see e.g. Amount of simple operations that is safely out of reach for all humanity?. Of course, there are a lot of mistakes you can make when encrypting things...

The captive portal is something to consider. However, note that captive portals usually authenticate by the MAC address once you are logged in, so this is just a more sophisticated way of setting up MAC filtering.

comment Should Carrier Ethernet traffic be encrypted?
Also, even if you have "full and sole control" over the hardware, it will be difficult to enforce it. You cannot patrol every meter of a kilometer-long cable.
