TrueCrypt: Disk Encryption Software

Here is an excellent open-source disk encryption software: TrueCrypt @ http://www.truecrypt.org/.

TrueCrypt can be used to realize wonderful use-cases from a security standpoint.

For example, what if you wanted a document like text file or an excel or a word document or a PDF on your computer that ONLY you should be able to access? TrueCrypt can do it for you.

As another example, you've a USB stick that is currently unprotected i.e. if you lose your USB stick, then whoever finds it has access to all of your data! TrueCrypt can create an entire encrypted partition on the storage device to meet this need.
