Alternatives to RealCrypt for all platforms with any license

  • TrueCrypt

    [TrueCrypt is not exactly "Open Source", but the source is available. See the reviews to get more information.] TrueCrypt is a disk encryption software for Windows Vista/XP, Mac OS X, and Linux. Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk. Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive. Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication).

    • Discontinued Currently unmaintained. Last version, TrueCrypt 7.1a, is still available for download and development has continued via the forks https://alternativeto.net/software/veracrypt/ and https://alternativeto.net/software/ciphershed/. "The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP. Windows 8/7/Vista and later offer integrated support for encrypted disks and virtual disk images."
  • CipherShed

    A fork of the now-discontinued TrueCrypt. CipherShed is a program that can be used to create encrypted files or encrypt entire drives (including USB flash drives and external HDDs). There’s no complicated commands or knowledge required; a simple wizard guides you step-by-step through every process. After creating an encrypted file or disk drive, the encrypted volume is mounted through CipherShed.

  • LUKS

    LUKS is the standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate compatibility among distributions, but also provides secure management of multiple user passwords. In contrast to existing solution, LUKS stores all setup necessary setup information in the partition header, enabling the user to transport or migrate his data seamlessly. LUKS was designed according to TKS1, a template design developed in TKS1 for secure key setup.

  • Windows BitLocker

    BitLocker drive encryption provides offline data and operating system protection by ensuring that the drive is not tampered with the operating system is offline. BitLocker drive encryption uses a TPM, either discrete or firmware, that supports the Static Root of Trust Measurement as defined by the Trusted Computing Group. BitLocker is capable of encrypting entire hard drives, including both system and data drives.

  • EncFS

    EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. You can find links to source and binary releases below. EncFS is open source software, licensed under the GPL. As with most encrypted filesystems, Encfs is meant to provide security against off-line attacks; ie your notebook or backups fall into the wrong hands, etc.

  • DiskCryptor

    DiskCryptor is the only truly free solution, provided under GNU General Public License (GPLv3), which offers encryption of all disk partitions, including the system partition. The main criteria for open-source software is the availability of its source code under one of the open source licenses. The only open-source alternative to DiskCryptor that has comparable features is TrueCrypt.

  • Luksus

    LUKSUS is a tool that creates an encrypted volume and filesystem on a hardrive or other storage media as well as a filecontainer. It can use the following encryption facilities: LUKS, Truecrypt and GELI. LUKSUS is a wrapper script for cryptsetup/tcplay/geli, shred and mkfs. Instead of having to read up on the documentation for these tools, I wrote this wrapper script to handle the dirtywork.

  • TruPax

    TruPax generates TrueCrypt - compatible container files from arbitrary sets of files and folders. Such files match exactly the size of the contained material and can be mounted by TrueCrypt, but also directly extracted using TruPax itself. Latter also works for containers formatted with FAT32 by TrueCrypt itself, thanks to fat32-lib. For all of that there are no administrator rights required when using TruPax. The generated file system of the containers is UDF 1.
