a free TrueCrypt implementation

A free TrueCrypt implementation. It supports creation and mounting of encrypted volumes (stored in a file or partition) through the command-line, with pretty much all features found in TrueCrypt. This includes: hidden volumes, multiple keyfiles and cipher cascades.

Unlike TrueCrypt it is maintained and under a proper free software license.


Usage documentation provided by manual page and help output from program.
