There are many reasons to encrypt the root file system on the Raspberry Pi, from keeping WiFi credentials immutable to keeping proprietary software and sensitive data from being cloned. For many Raspberry Pi configurations, only two partitions exist:
- /boot on /dev/mmcblk0p1
- / on /dev/mmcblk0p2
So it makes sense to encrypt the root partition as a way of encrypting everything.
