VeraCrypt è un programma multipiattaforma disponibile per Windows e Linux che permette di crittografare file ed interi hard disk in modo gratuito e che riprende lo sviluppo di TrueCrypt, progetto ormai abbandonato. VeraCrypt permette di crittografare tutto il contenuto dell’Hard Disk trasformandolo in un disco virtuale criptato e solo chi conosce la password può accedere ai file contenuti in esso. Supporta diversi tipi di crittografia fino a 2048 Bit in modo da rendere impossibile recuperare i file a chi non è a conoscenza delle chiavi per decriptare il disco. Di seguoto trovate il changelog completo del software.
