VeraCrypt

Discussion in 'Silicon (v)Alley' started by Blix, Dec 28, 2017.

  1. Anyone use this to encrypt their system files?
    How do you like it? Should I bother?
     
  2. I think I'll just upgrade Windows and use BitLocker.
    Simpler that way.

    I've used it to encrypt files at work but never an entire drive. It is a good program that I even recall seeing listed when I took ethical hacking. I use BitLocker currently, just in case a PC or laptop is stolen. I would use VeraCrypt if I wanted to encrypt a drive and BitLocker wasn't available. I would go with Bitlocker with TPM if your computer is new enough and supports it with the appropriate chip.
     
  4. I use LUKS and dm-crypt
     

  5. Well good for you. I'm not trying to keep out the NSA or anything.
    As if you can. I just want to keep hackers away from my data.

    Any folders I want to keep really secret, like the folder I store
    my passwords in, I protect using 2048 bit encryption.

  6. "In" seems to be a rather short and simple passymawordmajiggerdooything...
     
  7. Veracrypt is useful only if you are looking to encrypt a /home partition or even just a subfolder of a linux based hard drive. Bitlocker is better on Windows.
