Mar 02, 2020 · Bruce Schneier, a leading information security researcher, has long used TrueCrypt including to safeguard the computer he uses to work on leaked NSA files. Although he’s said he prefers

This essay is excerpted from Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World by Bruce Schneier, (Last year, I recommended TrueCrypt, but the developers stopped Bruce Schneier's first two, DiskCryptor, or keep using TrueCrypt while watching and for news I'm still using the original at present, it's not like Windows, with patches every month for new exploits, it hasn't seen (or as far as anyone knows needed) anything actually fixing in 2 years, there's no logical reason it should suddenly grow security holes or break Jul 12, 2017 · TrueCrypt 7.1a (Yes, Still) Yes, TrueCrypt development was officially halted and its official downloads page was taken down. The developers have made statements saying they’re not longer interested in the code, and that third-party developers can’t be trusted to maintain and patch it properly. May 05, 2015 · For example, AES (Twofish(Serpent)) - "Three ciphers in a cascade operating in XTS mode. Each block is first encrypted with Serpent (256-bit key), then with Twofish (256-bit key), and finally with AES (256-bit key). Each cipher has its own key. All keys are mutually independent." I use Twofish, which was developed by Bruce Schneier. Jul 16, 2008 · BT security expert Bruce Schneier and a group of researchers have hacked an ultra-paranoid feature in the TrueCrypt open-source disk encryption tool that lets users hide secret files from Bruce Schneier applauds BestCrypt for continually developing Linux file encryption. Version 3.0 of Jetico’s TrueCrypt alternative is now available. Oct 02, 2015 · Other alternatives include Veracrypt, a fork of Truecrypt, and Bestcrypt. Bruce Schneier, the security expert, prefers the latter. I’ve been using Veracrypt since a few months ago. Since it is based on Truecrypt, it had the same vulnerabilities but the new developers have patched it. Truecrypt users will find it looks and feels the same and

A unique effort to crowdsource a security audit of the popular TrueCrypt open source encryption software appears to be going viral three weeks after it was launched by two U.S. based researchers

Jun 08, 2014 · The "TrueCrypt is insecure" message may also affect user perception or at least doubt when it comes to VeraCrypt. While the -- ongoing -- audit has not found any major security issues in its first stage, it may still keep some users from giving VeraCrypt a true, considering that it is based on the same source as TrueCrypt. This has nothing to do with XP," said Bruce Schneier, noted cryptographer and one of those involved in the TrueCrypt audit. Like many others posting on blogs and on Twitter , Schneier said he has

In a paper published in 2008 and focused on the then latest version (v5.1a) and its plausible deniability, a team of security researchers led by Bruce Schneier states that Windows Vista, Microsoft Word, Google Desktop, and others store information on unencrypted disks, which might compromise TrueCrypt's plausible deniability. The study I'm no expert by any means. I am aware of the following: AxCrypt, Bitlocker, TrueCrypt, and Steganos VPN. Any or all of those could be useless since a 3rd party hasn't audited them AFAIK. TC was raising $ to get approved by an auditor last time I checked. Lifehacker always seems to have email/IM/Dropbox encryption tools every month. There is also a very interesting discussion about “Evil Maid’ in Bruce Schneier’s blog. As a conclusion, both BitLocker and TrueCrypt are excellent programs that can encrypt data. Now that you know the pros and cons of the programs and also the attack methods I hope it is easier to select the appropriate one for your needs. But the better answer is: because Truecrypt is important! Lots of people use it to store very sensitive information. That includes corporate secrets and private personal information. Bruce Schneier is even using it to store information on his personal air-gapped super-laptop, after he reviews leaked NSA documents.
