Alternatives to TrueCrypt for Mac with any license

  • VeraCrypt

    VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX and that is based on TrueCrypt . It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks. For example, when the system partition is encrypted, TrueCrypt uses PBKDF2-RIPEMD160 with 1000 iterations whereas in VeraCrypt we use 327670.

    • TrueCrypt was discontinued in mysterious circumstances. The code was taken forward by VeraCrypt. It is open source and some security vulnerabilities have been fixed since the TrueCrypt days. It's a great app for creating encrypted containers or encrypting whole drives. Backwards compatible with TrueCrypt. Truly excellent software. JohnFastmanNov 2016 • 8 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Open source fork of TrueCrypt. And most important - it's still developed, unlike TrueCrypt. Guest • Jun 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because it's an actual fork of TrueCrypt. User interface is the same also, as well as, being backward compatible with TrueCrypt files/containers. uriahheap98Nov 2015 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • An almost identical interface to TrueCrypt but added security that closes a security hole in TrueCrypt. soshowalFeb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It carries forward the classic TrueCrypt UI, which means that any TrueCrypt user can use it easily. sunsuronDec 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Cryptomator

    Cryptomator provides transparent, client-side encryption for your cloud. Protect your documents from unauthorized access. Cryptomator on the desktop is free and open source software, so you can rest assured there are no backdoors. Cryptomator for Android/iOS costs a small fee and is not open source, but it uses an open-core component that can be checked for backdoors. Easy and Reliable We understand simplicity as a key aspect of security.

    • Truecrypt is no more. Try the more updated and secure VeraCrypt. Both of those are for making an encrypted container into which files are placed. Cryptomator is different: it encrypts file-by-file (makes an encrypted version of each file). This enables you to sync/backup encrypted versions of your files to the cloud, which the TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt approach doesn't. Cryptomator thus fulfills a different need than does TC/VC. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 7 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It uses EncFs method for encryption. And their website is pretty clear about the encryption process Guest • Jun 2015 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • GostCrypt

    The Gostcrypt project has been launched at the end of 2013 as fork of the (late) Truecrypt project. It intends to go farther than ever. Since the late 70s, most of the algorithms used (not to say all) are UKUSA encryption systems that have been chosen, promoted and standardized under the control of the USA and its satellite countries. Security rationales The GOST 28147-89 block cipher uses 256-bit keys for encryption or decryption.

    • Really similar - different cryptographic algorith : no container (.tc files) compatibility - Similar graphic interface - quite same cross platform compatibility (windows+linux rpm deb+Mac OS X 10.9) - Same "reasonable deniabilty" with hidden volumes Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
