'Tool of the day : truecrypt'
categories: - Linux - Security - Tools - Windows
Free open-source disk encryption software for Windows XP/2000/2003 and Linux Main Features:
* Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk. * Encrypts an entire hard disk partition or a device. * Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent. * Provides two levels of plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password: 1) Hidden volume (steganography – more information may be found here). 2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be distinguished from random data). * Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Blowfish (448-bit key), CAST5, Serpent, Triple DES, and Twofish. Mode of operation: LRW (CBC supported as legacy).
