    I have PineBook Pro and would like to try NetBSD. I didn’t ever before use NetBSD, so I would be a total noob (but I use FreeBSD on most of my devices and the rest have OpenBSD so I guess that’s something). However, is it possible to set it up with encrypted root partition on NetBSD?

      In NetBSD, disk encryption is done via cgd(4). The arm64 port supports cgd according to dmesg but full disk encryption isn’t currently supported it seems (I don’t see a kernel module for it on offer to download).
