TrueCrypt is a wonderful piece of software which i recommend everyone to make use of to protect every mobile workstation. This freeware provides full or dynamic hard disk encryption. By dynamic i mean, that it can be used to encrypt flash drives, hard drives or partitions etc, depending on what you fancy. It makes use of the well known AES, 128 block size, 256 bit encryption cipher. Its is relatively easy to use since it also offers a rescue disk and software administration feels solid. I tested it on XP and Window 7 beta and there were no issues. I think I will give it a go at ubuntu too. I do suggest though that if you have a dual boot workstation you test it out prior to installation, since i have to say i managed to mess up my XP bootup after encrypting Windows 7.
