Podcasting What Geeks Really Want To Hear

Wednesday, March 21, 2007

I’m a fan of TrueCrypt on Windows (still using encrypted HFS on Mac).

Anyways, a new version, 4.3, is out, with many new features. From their website:

We are pleased to announce that TrueCrypt 4.3 has been released. Among the new features is full compatibility with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista, support for devices and file systems that use a sector size other than 512 bytes (such as new hard drives, USB flash drives, DVD-RAM, MP3 players, etc.), auto-dismount when a host device (e.g., a USB flash drive) is inadvertently removed, and many more. In addition to new features, there are many significant improvements. Some portions of the TrueCrypt device driver have been completely redesigned and several bugs have been fixed. For a comprehensive list of changes, please see http://www.truecrypt.org/docs/?s=version-history

  1. I have a TrueCrypt “traveller-mode” volume on my USB drive. One type of information I keep in that volume is router and firewall configs. This is great when I’m on a Windows machine, but I’m planning (hoping) to order a MacBook Pro in the near future and would like to have access to these files from that OS as well. Have you found any support at all for TC on OS X?

    Thanks!

  2. Sadly, not yet.

    There’s a rather odd discussion on their forum concerning this, that turns into a semi-flamewar. Basically, they’re working on a Mac version and its not out yet.

    You’d think they could just port it to FUSE and then they’d be pretty much done. :)

    (Yes, I’m a broken record with the whole FUSE thing, but I’m still loving it.)
