Technorati tag(s):

Ever had that moment when your pr0n collection was discovered? Or losing your USB containing all thos PnC files?

Well fret no more. Get a hold of TrueCrypt and start encrypting those important files (important is relative. to some the pr0n collection is important :)).

TrueCrypt's main features, from its website:

  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, Serpent, and Twofish. Mode of operation: LRW. 

TrueCrypt works for modern Windows and Linux.

TrueCrypt also has Travellers Mode, where we can make sure we can read the encrypted data in USB at other computers.

Initial tests show that it does work as advertised.

Here's a short movie about using TrueCrypt with XP:
