Can Windows 11 access an encrypted Linux portion on a separate SSD?


Suppose you have a PC with 2 separate SSDs. One is an install of Windows 11. The other is an install of a Linux distro, encrypted at time of installation (for example, with LUKS). Obviously you would only boot into one or the other at a time.

So a dual-boot, but each boot portion is on its own SSD (not sure if this matters, but its a relevant scenario).

Can the Windows 11 portion somehow get through the Linux encryption and access / read data on the Linux portion?

Sorry if this is a stupid or obvious question.
