Bemoaning The Abrupt End Of TrueCrypt

Truecrypt Banner

If you’ve been following news about security and encryption tools, no doubt you’ve heard of the shutdown of popular open source encryption tool TrueCrypt. Given that using TrueCrypt was considered one of a handful of ways for individuals to protect data in the wake of recent NSA spying revelations, this unexpected news has rocked the Internet. I’ve been waiting for more details to surface from developer about the shutdown, but things are far too silent for my liking. I thought I’d take a look at what happened, what’s out there and whether we should all abandon TrueCrypt altogether.

There are no more results.
