VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX ( and based on TrueCrypt 7.1a.

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

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

    I installed full partition encryption using dual encryption. I still find it acting as if the drive was never encrypted (except for the booting up of course). I use this for development and our software must be kept secured. Next time I encrypt I will probably do the triple encryption with AES as the very last one. The only thing I am downgrading Ease of Use on is the fact you must currently download source code, compile it then run it to be able to use UEFI Secured Boot. Once it is incorporated into the entire process without building source code I will give it a 5!

    Security 対策上、ファイル、フォルダー、ドライブ、デバイスの暗号化は大切な観点です。 「BitLocker」や「TrueCrypt」、「アタッシェケース」は著名ですが・・・、①万全性、②汎用性、③簡便性で満足できるものでは、「VeraCrypt」が知見上のベストワンです。 しかも④多言語対応が成されており、「日本語」に切替られます。⑤サポート(英文/e-mail)は迅速で、丁寧です。⑥更新も適時実施されており、安心感があります。 ◆とりわけ「TrueCrypt」は、マルチプラットフォーム仕様のため、 Windows/Linux/Mac/デバイスを問わずに使用でき、人気を得てきましたが、 2014年5月、一方的な「更新放棄」宣言がなされ、深刻な「Security リスク」が指摘されています。 ◆この問題を憂慮した有志によって、TrueCrypt をベースに再設計して制作されたものが、「VeraCrypt」です。 多段暗号化アルゴリズムを導入し、ハッシュ関数を追加し、 XTS 暗号モードなどにより、 Security は飛躍的に強化され、 NTFS フォーマット準拠も図られました。 オリジナルの TrueCrypt で指摘されている多数のセキュリティ問題が修正されています。 VeraCrypt 1.15 は、Forshaw 氏が発見した 2 件の脆弱性のパッチが加えられ、バグ修正も図られました。 TrueCrypt ユーザーは、VeraCrypt への変更をすべきです。 ◆チュートリアル(具体的な手順書)は、英文ですが、「k本的に無料ソフト・フリーソフト」 で、VeraCrypt の概要や使い方などが詳述されているので、簡単に、安心して使うことができます。 ◆「キーファイル※」について: 初級者は「キーファイルを使用」のチェックを外したまま、セットアップをした方が無難です。※そのデバイスに実在するファイルやフォルダーなどを 「key-File」 として設定するので、「絶対パス(path)」が、不一致する事態になれば復号不能になります。初級者では解決困難な事態に陥ります。 ◆パスワード生成/管理は、パスワード・マネージャーの「KeePass」使用を推奨します。

    Excellent encryption. Open source but questions over license as it is not fully open although sourcecode is. and currently in audit for verification. A branch of Truecrypt, all flaws in Truecrypt's audit were patched and currently others that have been uncovered are patched with the just released 118a version of Veracrypt. Incompatibility with Linux helps although to guaranty Linux/windows containers are cross compatible read documentation.

    Not keeping completely with the original TrueCrypt philosophy and approach but close :-D
