Encryption software

I have been looking across the Internet for software to use to encrypt information.

I am interested in having a file that is essentially an encrypted volume that you can mount, and I need to be able to take that file across to FreeBSD and Windows if need be. I have found TrueCrypt, and this works wonderfully, but is only for Windows.

Is there any other solution that would allow me to be able to mount a filesystem over other platforms? Perhaps an encrypted volume on FreeBSD that is shared through Samba to Windows?

Do you have any creative ways you encrypt and access your data?

Thanks.

Personally I like hand-done encryption. Rename all of the files to some obscure extension.

I have a rot13 or rot(x) program I use to deter people from reading sensitive information - it's not very strong (at all) but it should put off your opportunist data thief.

As for the encrypted volume, a quick google came up with plenty of options.

Did you try FreeOTFE(.org)?

I am talking tinfoil-hat worthy encryption software.

cyrnel - this looks promising. I'll test it out when I have a chance - I don't use Linux (Im a BSD hippie!).

Yea, I have to hope it'll build with the right compatibility enabled. No doubt someone's already using it or similar. I'm just not current on my BSD stuff. I'd be digging through the FBSD newsgroups. Maybe look at Vinum goodies?

I HIGHLY recommend PGP. You can get PGP Desktop for Windows and there are several *nix-based PGP implementations. It's as secure as you make it (I use a 2048-bit key for work), it's portable, it's well known.

ROT13 and renaming file extensions aren't exactly encryption, per se. Well, ROT13 TECHNICALLY is, but I mean... not REALLY...

No, truecrypt exists for Linux as well, have you tested if it can be compiled on BSD?
