O conhecido software open source TrueCrypt, que permite encriptar os nossos discos ou ficheiros, está disponível numa nova versão. Nas novidades destacam-se a versão para Mac OS e a adição de uma interface gráfica para a versão de Linux.
A lista de todas as novidades desta versão é a seguinte:

 - Ability to encrypt a system partition/drive (i.e. a partition/drive where Windows is installed) with pre-boot authentication (anyone who wants to gain access and use the system, read and write files, etc., needs to enter the correct password each time before the system starts). For more information, see the chapter System Encryption in the documentation. (Windows Vista/XP/2003)

 - Pipelined operations increasing read/write speed by up to 100% (Windows)

 - Mac OS X version

 - Graphical user interface for the Linux version of TrueCrypt

 - XTS mode of operation, which was designed by Phillip Rogaway in 2003 and which was recently approved as the IEEE 1619 standard for cryptographic protection of data on block-oriented storage devices. XTS is faster and more secure than LRW mode (for more information on XTS mode, see the section Modes of Operation in the documentation).

 - SHA-512 hash algorithm (replacing SHA-1, which is no longer available when creating new volumes).
