DiskCryptor 1.0.744.115

Protect your disks by using encryption.

DiskCryptor represents a useful encryption solution designed to allow users encrypt or mount all the partitions. The main criteria for open-source software is the availability of its source code under one of the open source licenses.

The only alternative to DiskCryptor that has comparable features isTrueCrypt. There are other alternatives with similar functionality, but they are fully proprietary ones, which makes them unacceptable to use for protection of confidential data.

Originally, DiskCryptor was conceived as a replacement for DriveCrypt Plus Pack and PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE). Now, however, the aim of the development of the project is to create the best product in its category.

Moreover, in the future, considerable effort will be devoted to the creation of detailed documentation, explaining the internal mechanics of the program, which would be the best confirmation and demonstration of its security.

Here are some key features of "DiskCryptor":

· Support for encryption algorithm AES, Twofish, Serpent, including their combinations.
· Transparent encryption of disk partitions.
· Full support for dynamic disks.
· Support for disk devices with large sector size (important for hardware RAID operation).

· High performance, comparable to efficiency of a non-encrypted system.
Support for hardware AES acceleration:
· AES-NI instruction set on new Intel CPU;
· PadLock extensions on VIA processors.

· Broad choice in configuration of booting an encrypted OS. Support for various multi-boot options.
· Full compatibility with third party boot loaders (LILO, GRUB, etc.).
· Encryption of system and bootable partitions with pre-boot authentication.
· Option to place boot loader on external medium and to authenticate using the key medium.
· Support for key files.

· Full support for external storage devices.
· Option to create encrypted CD and DVD disks.
· Full support for encryption of external USB storage devices.
· Automatic mounting of disk partitions and external storage devices.
· Support for hotkeys and optional command-line interface (CLI).

What's New in This Release:

· Project moved to Visual Studio 2010
· Improved: 3tb+ disks detection.
