This page exists only to help migrate existing data encrypted by TrueCrypt.

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. Such integrated support is also available on other platforms (click here for more information). You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform.

NSA backdoor implemented

obviously someone who knows exactly whats going on and can doesn't feel the need to Google right here.

hurrrrrrrr

A NSL probably.

passed a preliminary security audit
>>
>>44844811
Audit is finished, discovered that TrueCrypt is secure enough and doesn't have backdoors that the NSA can covertly exploit (the way they did Heartbleed etc), NSA finds out

Go to TrueCrypt devs, issue gag order, demand backdoor or face the wrath of the USG

TrueCrypt devs are forced to implement backdoor but are able to change the website to something obviously "off" (recommending BitLocker) as a type of warrant canary

This is what seems most likely to

>>44844884
This would be my guess, too.

>>44844884
Only first phase of the audit was finished.

Peeps that arranged for the audit and organized the fundraising for it are now working on a FOSS replacement for TrueCrypt. IIRC, an EFF attorney is involved in the board for it as well.

There was a presentation on this at Defcon this year. Not sure if vid has been posted yet.

This

For the longest time it's been common knowledge how to detect if a secondary "hidden" partition existed within the block. In fact I know of three separate court cases where this paper was cited.

If your system is so insecure you can't hide a partition because of a fucking "hiccup" in entropy then you dun fucked up.

By whom I wonder...
>>
>>44844818
Compromised as in:

A. The software has a weakness
B. The developers got NSL'd and decided to shut it down

Thats what gets me every time.

One has nothing to do with the other.. So what if Microsoft doesnt support XP anymore?
