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.
Distribution: openSuSE 42.1_64+Tumbleweed-KDE, Mint 17.3
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?
