Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

From the ever informative LinuxVoice magazine's review of TrueCrypt descendent "CipherShed"....
There are other TrueCrypt derivatives besides CipherShed
that you may also like to try.
VeraCrypt contains enhanced security algorithms that,
the developers claim, make it immune to new developments
in brute-force attacks and solves vulnerabilities found in
TrueCrypt. These enhancements, however, mean its storage
format is incompatible with TrueCrypt. Read more on their
website at http://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt.
Realcrypt is essentially TrueCrypt with the branding
changed. Itís available for Fedora users in the RPM Fusion
Tcplay is a free BSD-licensed command-line TrueCrypt
implementation based on the Linux kernelís dm-crypt
device mapper (https://github.com/bwalex/tc-play). It is
compatible with TrueCrypt volumes.
As others already stated I use several of these together, so voting for just one doesn't really do it justice or make sense. It is such a broad category that it becomes unusable for anything more than trying to learn about new options. Though for that I am glad to see options especially around TrueCrypt replacements. I loved TrueCrypt but since the vulnerabilities were disclosed I have yet to find a viable replacement that I liked. Testing Veracrypt now for that as I recently learned about it. One in the password manager category that KeePass would be part of that I recently learned of is TeamPass. It seems much better than KeePass which I could never get working reliably, but is not as feature extensive if you want to add it to the list.
My recommendation would be to either remove this category or to break it out into 3 different ones - Cryptosoftware, Browser Privacy, and Password Management. It would still be broad, especially in Browser Privacy, but it would better break down to comparable solutions.
