OR take a look at the freeware TrueCrypt, which I have used on CD-RW ,HDD's etc. It allows some fiendish hidden encryption. eg a virtual encrypted disk within a file. And, the part I love, "plausible deniability" - don't you just love that phrase. LOL





( oh and I have nothing to do with the product, so I am mot spamming)

Ordinary ThinkXtra (TX) recordable CD's and DVD's are of poor quality, don't say I didn't warn you...

Another reason that TrueCrypt is a good idea is that it supports Mac OS X and Linux, not just Windows.

And another +1 for truecrypt. Not 100% whether it could run easily on non-writeable media like a cd-r, but I'm using the traveller version of it on a USB key. No need to have anything installed on the machine, just stick in the usb key and the software runs from the usb stick, and auto mounts the protected volume (when you've put the password in...).





The biggest problem I had with truecrypt is that reading the FAQ's and other info made me feel like a terrorist





Chocoa - you shouldn't need to confirm you're not linked to the "product" - it's freeware after all :-)

Chocoa - just looked up TrueCrypt's site, as I was intrigued by 'plausible deniability', a term I haven't heard since Area 51 was kept hidden from the President in Independence Day! I love the scenario they present on their website - very Hollywood!

Yeah, first thing I thought when I saw this was TrueCrypt :).


One point people keep making about the "plausible deniability" bit, do be aware for this to work there are a lot of gotcha's, that involve a lot of changes to the way you save your data etc.

People have mentioned TrueCrypt to me before, but the point with these discs is that you don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to download anything, you don’t have to install anything onto the media, you simply put the disc in the drive and it works.





And let’s not forget that many corporate installations won’t even allow the use of freeware applications, or if they do allow them, they have to be tested and put on the “approved list” first - yes I’m talking from frustrating personal experience here!





Ultimately, for your average PC user to take data security into account, it has to be made as simple as possible, and that’s what these discs do. Everything is just there, without the need for any user intervention. That alone will make the encryption and password protection more solid, since even the laziest of worker will have to use it.

Hoo, who will use a freeware to protect, carry or send confidential data ?





sure, me not.
