It's recently come to my attention that I've got files I'd rather not have other people just looking at (personal info, contacts, etc.), so I figured making an encrypted volume in which to store said data was a good idea.

The biggest problem I have right now is deciding what software to use. What are people using and what do people recommend? I'm looking for something that's popular enough to be in many distros' repos, preferably with not too much overhead (I'm know encryption takes some CPU time, but I'm not running a supercomputer here).

TrueCrypt is masked under Gentoo (apparent legal issues or something, but I can get it built if it's the best choice), FWIW.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Nevermind... I just installed TrueCrypt. If you still want to post what you use, feel free to do so, however.
