Encrypted USB Drives for Linux and Windows

  I played with 2 options: TrueCrypt and FreeOTFE TrueCrypt has a Windows and Linux GUI making it pretty easy to use cross platform.  It also do some pretty cool encryption of the boot drive to secure the whole computer, but I haven’t messed with that yet. FreeOTFE has cool because it has a WIndows GUI and can automount under linux if you encrypt a whole partition as opposed to a volume (file) stored on a partition.  I really wanted to go with FreeOTFE for the automounting, but ran into a deal breaker issue.  Windows can only mount a single partition from a USB drive, so I couldn’t have a small  partition to run FreeOTFE from (so it was portable to any Windows computer) and have a 2nd large encrypted  partition for the data. Configuring FreeOTFE and Linux see My notes just in case the above link ever goes away: sudo apt-get install cryptsetup sudo modprobe dm-crypt ## If you haven’t rebooted sudo cryptsetup –verbose –verify-passphrase luksFormat /dev/sdb5 sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb5 sdb5 # Based on fat32 or ntfs sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/mapper/sdb5 -n “tpearsall” sudo mkntfs -f /dev/mapper/sdb5 sudo cryptsetup luksClose sdb5
