Hello members of StackExchange,
I am running a Debian 8.0 server with Full-Disk-Encryption and while I was doing some hardening I went through the
/etc/fstab and I was wondering if some partitions were really necessary to be mounted automatically.
After some research I found out that apparently it is not necessary to auto-mount the
/boot partition since it is being read otherwise and I would not want some program potentially writing in this rather critical area.
But since my filesystem is encrypted, I am not sure if that is still the case and if in general that answer was correct.
I would be happy if someone could give me an answer on that.
Thanks in advance!
