[arch-general] Encrypting remote system

I'm wondering whether there is a possibility to encrypt a remote system
using Arch Linux? I have installed Arch on a remote server, and don't
like the idea that anyone with physical access to my system has access
to my data. So is there something I can do about it?

Using dm-crypt (with luks) doesn't work at all, as I can't input the
passphrase when I reboot my system, the technician would really hate me
if I ask them to attach a remote console each time I reboot my system.

So is there anything I can do?

Best regards,
