Truecrypt 5.0 encrypts the OS partition

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 6 years ago

Security 0

An anonymous reader writes "Truecrypt 5.0 has been released. Truecrypt is open source disk encryption software. It encrypts and decrypts disk I/O on the fly, can mount encrypted container files and partitions and provides plausible deniability. New features in 5.0 include system partition encryption with pre-boot authentication for Windows, a MacOS X version, much increased speed due to pipelined I/O, more secure hash algorithm and block encryption mode and a GUI for the Linux version."
