monkey999 (3597657) writes "A new disk encryption program for Windows has been released that is compatible with Linux encryption and — unlike Truecrypt — is fully maintained. From the announcement:

Features

  • Full transparent encryption, DoxBoxes appear as removable disks in Windows Explorer.
  • Explorer mode lets you access DoxBoxes when you don't have admin permissions.
  • Compatible with Linux encryption, Cryptoloop "losetup", dm-crypt, and LUKS. Linux shell scripts support deniable encryption on Linux.
  • Supports smartcards and security tokens.
  • Optional 'key files' let you use a thumb-drive as a key.
  • Portable mode doesn't need to be installed and leaves little trace on 3rd party PCs
  • Deniable encryption protects you from 'rubber hose cryptography'.
"

Thanks for posting this. I am the maintainer of DoxBox. It's not entirely accurate to say it's a 'new' program, because it is a re-launch of FreeOTFE [wikipedia.org] . The github project is here [github.com] .
