Name GNU fcrypt
Short description Transparent and automatic encryption. Allow you to access encrypted data like unecrypted HD's.
Full description GNU fcrypt is a utility that allows you to have encrypted partitions and accesses them in a completely transparent way (like hard drives without encryption). You can have many secret partitions and if forced, you can gradually reveals them to the attacker. The attacker should not be able to know how many secret partitions you have (good if the attacker think that you have something to hide). In reality 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(always on), 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.
