windows default iconFreeOTFE Publisher's description

FreeOTFE is a free, open source, "on-the-fly" transparent disk encryption program for PCs and PDAs (Windows Mobile 2003/2005).

FreeOTFE is a free, open source, "on-the-fly" transparent disk encryption program for PCs and PDAs (Windows Mobile 2003/2005).
Using this software, you can create one or more "virtual disks" on your PC/PDA - anything written to these disks is transparently, and securely, encrypted before being stored on your computer???s hard drive.


Source code freely available
Easy to use; full wizard included for creating new volumes
Data encrypted on your PC can be read/written on your PDA, and vice versa
Powerful: Supports numerous hash/encryption algorithms, and provides a greater level of flexibility than a number of other (including commercial!) OTFE systems
Hash algorithms include: MD5, SHA-512, RIPEMD-160, Tiger and many more
Cyphers include AES (256 bit), Twofish (256 bit), Blowfish (448 bit), Serpent (256 bit) and many more
"Portable mode" included; FreeOTFE doesn???t need to be installed before it can be used - making it ideal for carrying your data securely on USB drives!
Operates under both PC (MS Windows 2000/XP) and PDA (Windows Mobile 2003/2005) platforms
Linux compatibility (Cryptoloop "losetup", dm-crypt and LUKS supported)
"Hidden" volumes may be concealed within other FreeOTFE volumes, providing "plausible deniability"
FreeOTFE volumes have no "signature" to allow them to be identified as such
Encrypted volumes can be either file or partition based.
Modular design allowing 3rd party drivers to be created, incorporating new hash/cypher algorithms
Decryption software available to improve transparency, and allow even the most junior software engineer to prove data is being encrypted correctly
Supports password salting (up to 512 bits), reducing the risks presented by dictionary attacks.
Allows users to backup and restore the critical areas of volume files.
Keyfile support included; store volumes and their associated metadata separately.
Uses per-sector IVs, including support for ESSIV
Volume file timestamps and attributes are reset after dismounting, increasing "plausible deniability"
Supports volumes files up to 2^63 bytes (8388608 TB)
Naturally, fully supported by SecureTrayUtil.

What's New in This Release:

* Added support for using keyfiles with LUKS volumes (Hint: For ease of use, keyfiles may also be dragged and dropped onto the LUKS password entry dialog)
* Changed disk/partition selection dialog to treat doubleclicking on a disk/partition as selecting it. Selected disk/partition properties can now be accessed via context menu item
* When mounting a file based volume which is readonly, the readonly checkbox will automatically be selected
* Change made such that if FreeOTFE's MRU list is disabled (this is the default), then volumes, keyfiles, etc will not appear on the MS Windows system MRU list either.
* Added Greek language translation
* Added Croatian language translation
* Cosmetic display tweaks to better handle translations

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Major Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
