USB Encryption: TrueCrypt is disk data encryption software that can be used to securely encrypt the information stored on hard disk partitions, portable storage media and USB flash devices. It can be run from a USB device in traveller mode. TrueCrypt works by creating a virtual encrypted disk within a file and then mounting the file as a real disk so it can be accessed as a storage medium. Encryption is done automatically on-the-fly. TrueCrypt uses Twofish, AES-256 and Serpent encryption algorithms to secure the stored data.
