Description

VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX (https://www.idrix.fr) and based on TrueCrypt.

It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks. It also solves many vulnerabilities and security issues found in TrueCrypt.

This 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 harder for an attacker to gain access to the encrypted data.

All released files are PGP signed with key ID=0x54DDD393, available on key servers and downloadable at https://www.idrix.fr/VeraCrypt/VeraCrypt_PGP_public_key.asc

VeraCrypt can mount TrueCrypt volumes. It also can convert them to VeraCrypt format.

    I've been using VeraCrypt for a while now, after the Trucrypt incident. Created a sourceforge account just to thank you guys, for all your effort! Very good tool, tons of good improvments and frequent updates. A++! Lovely design by the way! Also, thank you for keeping it multi-platform! As a linux user, I'm very happy with this :)

    Thank you for your hard work in continuing the TrueCrypt legacy. Migrated over to VeraCrypt shortly after the TrueCrypt developers closed up shop and have had zero issues so far.

    To cymbal86: Have substituted my trueCrypt containers with VeraCrypt ones for a month now. No crashes yet using Windows 8.1. - I am however a bit pissed off by the long mount time, even on a fast computer. D*
