VeraCrypt – free and open source, multi-platform disk encryption software


  • Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk;
  • Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive or hard drive;
  • Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot authentication);
  • Encryption is automatic, real-time(on-the-fly) and transparent;
  • Parallelization and pipelining allow data to be read and written as fast as if the drive was not encrypted;
  • Encryption can be hardware-accelerated on modern processors;
  • Provides plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password: Hidden volume (steganography) and hidden operating system;
  • More information about the features of VeraCrypt may be found in the documentation.
