TRUECRYPT for hiding files with encryption
« on: April 17, 2009, 04:24:03 PM »
Try truecrypt, it creates an encrypted HARD DISK in your computer that will require a password to open and view the files inside, u can also encrypt an already exisiting hard disk. Truecrypt allows you to use a normal file as a crypt file. That means u can select an Mp3 or text file and use it to store files inside and it will still appear as an mp3 or text file in the computer. U can also carry the encrypted file to any computer and open it if there is truecrypt installed.


Main Features:
Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.

Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive.

Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication).

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) and hidden operating system.

2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be distinguished from random data).

Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Serpent, and Twofish. Mode of operation: XTS.
Further information regarding features of the software may be found in the documentation.
