TrueCrypt vs. CFS
 
Hey guys, I would like just to have some user input on these 2 progarms. I want to encrypt some of my servers drives, and i would like to know if anyone has tested or know the performance of these 2 programs. I have been trying to read around, no one has really said much other then what they do (both encrypt) lol

Iam leaning towards TrueCrypt but iam not sure for perfomance wise.

On some of my servers I use bsd's cgd, and its insainly fast. there is like no delay in transfers.


Any input would be nice guys. Thanks!

I'm no expert here. Anyway, for what it is worth: TrueCrypt aims to enable you to hide the fact that you have encrypted files in a nested / hidden manner. So if this is your aim -- okay. I'm not familiar with the aims of CFS.

Now SuSE enables its users to install one or more (nearly all) partitions during installation as encrypted and does that transparently. That of any help?

Yes thats good enough. That seems to be an interesting feature I would like to look at. I think maybe I will just try both and see which one is better for me. But i think truecrypt may be it.


Thanks for the reply!!!:study:

If you've got the time for it, by all means try both. TrueCrypt has an impressive array of algorithms for encryption, that might make it more interesting as well.

Anyhow, lets hope a little post will come forth about the whys and hows of your final decision ... ;).

TrueCrypt works on Linux and Windows. That could be handy.
