Episode 23 - Full Hard Drive Encryption in Windows

I have blogged in the past about the software I use in this episode of Bauer-Power, but I thought I would do a video about it as well. I did the video on Full Hard Drive encryption due to a request from Bauer-Power viewer Jessica from Facebook.

Jessica said I needed to do some videos on how people can protect themselves from some of the hacking attacks I did in episode 19 and episode 22. This video shows how one can protect themselves from offline password attacks using full hard drive encryption.

In the video I use Truecrypt to perform the full hard drive encryption. As mentioned in the video, I didn’t use Bitlocker because it isn’t available in all version of Windows 7, and it is limited to certain types of processors. Truecrypt can be use to fully encrypt a hard drive no matter what flavor of Windows you are using, including Windows XP.

This video is a little longer than my standard 10 minutes, sorry about that. Anyway, here it is:


I want to do some more episode on how to do full hard drive encryption in Linux and possibly in OSX. Do you have any good recommendations for Linux and OSX? I know you can created an Encrypted LVM in Ubuntu at install time, but I would love to know of an easy way to do it after Ubuntu has been installed. If you know, hit me up in the comments!
