Interesting is the authentication based on some version of  linux?

Flagstone encrypted drives interrupt the bios at boot.

The first start after a hard reboot prompts for the authentication, and 
subsequent soft-boots continue to allow access without re-authenticating.

Attempting to access the data without authentication is blocked in the hardware 
so mounting the drive is not an option.
