Eldmannen Posted February 6, 2008 Share Posted February 6, 2008 TrueCrypt 5.0 released (February 5, 2008). TrueCrypt allows you to created virtual encrypted hidden volumes on your hard disk. The volumes are hidden (steganography) and not identifiable (volumes cannot be distinguished from random data), and you can have several hidden volumes (one real, one fake) to get plausible deniability. You can also encrypt the whole system partition (where Windows is located), so every single file on the computer is encrypted. TrueCrypt is free open source software (released under the terms of the TrueCrypt Collective License Version 1.3). Versions available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The program is digitally signed by the TrueCrypt Foundation. You can also install it as portable application. With TrueCrypt you can hide your private pictures and movies, your warez, porno, satellite uplink codes, corporate business secrets, source code, world domination projects, cryptographic keys, leaked government documents, etc from your family, friends, boss, government, RIAA/MPAA/BSA, thieves/burglars, spies, infiltrators, etc. It allows you to unmount/dismount all encrypted volumes on a hotkey-press. The encryption is automatic real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent. It can encrypt an entire hard disk partition or storage device such as USB flash drive. It has AES-256, Serpent, and Twofish encryption algorithms and XTS mode of operation. http://www.truecrypt.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrueCrypt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
