      Have you ever wanted to encrypt your USB stick or your laptop hard drive 
in case it got lost? TrueCrypt is a Free Open source solution.   
  TrueCrypt is an open source disk encryption software for Windows 2000/XP/2003 
and Linux.
        Main Features        
   Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk. 

   Encrypts an entire hard disk partition or a storage device such as USB flash 

   Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.

   Provides two levels of plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces 
you to reveal the password:

1) Hidden volume (steganography ? more information may be found here).

2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be distinguished from 
random data).

   Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Blowfish (448-bit key), CAST5, Serpent, 
Triple DES, and Twofish.
Mode of operation: LRW  (CBC supported as legacy).
