http://thehackernews.com/2015/09/truecrypt-encryption-software.html TrueCrypt compromised.


>>

It's been compromised for a LONG time. Thank you though, chum. Can we PLEASE have an encryption thread about what encryption to use? The actual image in the sticky isn't help. I checked. I am trying axcrypt, and it encrypts files so you can't access them, but you can still see them. I will actually be experimenting with new encryption software, but whether I report it here or not will be dependent on whether you guys want it.

>>2978 what OS are you on, that will decide what you are going to use. Also TrueCrypt has been redone so I'm fairly sure it's okay now. It's been audited and some parts redone

>>2978 the sticky only tells you what to use if you are using linux >cryptsetup/dmsetup >dm-crypt/LUKS

>>2999 These are all great options for Linux users alone. However, if you want a gui, use Tomb[https://www.dyne.org/software/tomb/](the gui for pgp) or Veracrypt[http://veracrypt.codeplex.com/] (a relatively recent fork of Truecrypt that aims to fix all the security flaws) >when the system partition is encrypted, TrueCrypt uses PBKDF2-RIPEMD160 with 1000 iterations whereas in VeraCrypt we use 327661. And for standard containers and other partitions, TrueCrypt uses at most 2000 iterations but VeraCrypt uses 655331 for RIPEMD160 and 500000 iterations for SHA-2 and Whirlpool.

>>3001 verakrypt i mean lol

>>2999 That's because if you're using windows you obviously don't care about privacy
