    • VeraCrypt is for encrypting local files, cryptomator is for encrypting remote files as they are uploaded to cloud providers Guest • Dec 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Now, it does support saving the encrypted files into local storage. But it does need an internet connection. So even the local storage can't be decrypted without an internet connection, I do not understand why, In my opinion local storage en-/decryption shouldn't depend on internet connection. teewetAug 2017 • 5 agrees and 14 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Does not do encryption of local files, partitions, or drives Guest • Jul 2018 • 0 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Only encrypts files that are to be uploaded to dropbox or google drive, no local volume support Guest • Feb 2017 • 3 agrees and 33 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • 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."

  • 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.

  • File Lock PEA

    Password-encryption of files and folders. The program is written in Java and therefore platform-independent and runs on nearly every system without installation, but requires a Java Runtime Environment - that is already installed in most cases. File PEA encrypts files and folders with authenticated encryption to protect confidentiality and integrity of the data and uses memory-hard key derivation functions to prevent custom hardware attacks.

  • 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.

    • Warning The author has agreed that EncFS in its current form is dangerous (to security) for several reasons. Wikipedia has a brief summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EncFS#General_Security_Concerns The actual audit, which the author participated in, is here: https://defuse.ca/audits/encfs.htm
