Veracrypt Open Source Free Disk Encryption

 Veracrypt Open Source Free Disk Encryption
Introducing Veracrypt Open Source free disk encryption. This tool is provided by IDRIX. It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks. 

This tool is based on TryeCrypt. As we known TrueCrypt features are follows.
  • Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.
  • Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive.
  • Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication).
  • Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.
  • Parallelization and pipelining allow data to be read and written as fast as if the drive was not encrypted.
  • Encryption can be hardware-accelerated on modern processors.
  • Provides plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password:
Veracypt enhanced security adds some delay only to the opening of encrypted partitions without any performance impact to the application use phase. This is acceptable to the legitimate owner but it makes it much more harder for an attacker to gain access to the encrypted data.

VeraCrypt storage format is INCOMPATIBLE with TrueCrypt storage format. Hidden volume (steganography) and hidden operating system. 

Its a free compatible software for disk encryption size has 3.27Mb and support to Windows Xp/2003/Vista7.
