Hello,

which way of encrypted file storage is recommended for pdaXrom?
I have tried BestCrypt under Cacko, certainly a safe thing, but a bit too complicated in usage for my taste.

Is there

a compiled BestCrypt package for pdaXrom available?

another recommended program which runs under pdaXrom?



I need to save some smaller files in a way that read access is only possible after giving a password. Filesizes are about some kB.

Thanks
daniel

Yep ... I compiled Bestcrypt a while back. See this thread. This is for 2.4.20, which was the kernel used in beta1. Has that changed in beta3? If so I can recompile if you like.

Oh, thanks, I didn't realize this was for pdaXrom.
But still, as under Cacko, there is no mkfs binary, so the container must still be created on a PC.

Well, I would prefer another solution without loading kernel modules, maybe just one command line tool which encrypts and decrypts a file using a password.

Or even better, which encrypts / decrypts a normal directory in a file system, so I can put in several files, but without having one container file, unnecessary space overhead etc.

Well, may try Bestcrypt again if nothing else is suggested...

I saw TrueCrypt is available for Linux, but unfortunately it needs kernel 2.6.5 or later. And it seems to build some kernel modules, too.
