Encrypt partitions and access them transparent.

GNU fcrypt is a utility that allows you to have encrypted partitions and accesses them in a transparent way. You can have many secret partitions and, if forced, you can gradually reveal them to the attacker. The attacker should not be able to know if you have any secret partition. If the data is very secret, you can use random passwords. Good if your computer is connected 24 hours, because you can instantly "delete" lots of data. Because the computer is connected 24 hours your data will not be lost despite the random password and are lost when the computer is turned off.
