Tor attempts to encrypt packets, but this has no relation to encrypting the fundamental disk. If you believe that Tor will provide you security, let me have physical access to your system, & I will prove the thought otherwise.

OpenBSD does allows portions of secondary store to be encrypted through bioctl(8), but this was not the original question.

As I have referenced elsewhere, Tor's attempt to equate anonymity with privacy is not flawless nor necessarily trustworthy:

Likewise, searching through the archives of the OpenBSD project's mailing lists does not show that the project developers there are strong advocates of Tor either. A question you need to answer to yourself is why is this the case?
