5 open source security projects to watch

Rodney Gedda | Jan. 19, 2011
Data security is always top of mind for CIOs and CSOs, and there is no shortage of challenges when it comes to picking the right tool for the job.

Encryption is often a basic requirement for data security and the open source TrueCrypt project promises to make it as easy as possible.

Using a virtual encrypted disk, TrueCrypt can encrypt an entire partition or storage device, including USB flash drives or regular hard drives.

And since the encryption is in real-time it should be transparent to the user. It also supports hardware-accelerated encryption on modern processors.

TrueCrypt will run on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
