TrueCrypt for Linux description
TrueCrypt is free open-source disk encryption software.

Here are some key features of "TrueCrypt":

· 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).
· 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.. TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux. TrueCrypt is free open-source disk encryption software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux. In case an attacker forces you to reveal the password, TrueCrypt provides plausible deniability. In contrast to file encryption, data encryption performed by TrueCrypt is real-time (on-the-fly), automatic, transparent, and does not involve temporary unencrypted files.
