You could point folk to http://www.truecrypt.org/ if , having read the material on the website, you feel comfortable about it. The source is available in addition to binaries. And, for those in the United States, the following is available from the FAQ:

I live in a country that violates basic human rights of its people. Is it possible to use TrueCrypt without leaving any 'traces' on unencrypted Windows?

Yes. This can be achieved by running TrueCrypt in portable mode under BartPE or in a similar environment.


The website TrueCrypt touts Tor, which is regrettable. I would not recommend Tor as a secure vehicle. I'm also sure there are some Iranians who if still alive would also be reluctant to endorse Tor.

Obviously, the TrueCrypt source, after have been read carefully, would also have to be compiled - neglecting the TrueCrypt binaries.

Like you, not many secrets here. I do encrypt email with some likeminded folk, just as an irritant since,  if cracked, there is nothing there more interesting than would be a grocery list. I also regard the statement by TrueCrypt that "the FBI" couldn't crack it as bait on a hook.

But - that's me. Grin
