Sourcetrunk (Episode 009) : Truecrypt

This episode will be very secure, so secure I can perfectly deny that it has ever been produced. Embrace Truecrypt ! Windows and Linux software for securing your data. Open Source of course.

I. system tools : Truecrypt
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 storage device such as USB flash drive.

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).

Conceived in 2003.
