How to use truecrypt in windows

It is assumed that the latest correct version of TrueCrypt (7.1a) is already installed.

For comparison, hash should be:
md5 – 7a23ac83a0856c352025a6f7c9cc1526 TrueCrypt Setup 7.1a.exe
sha256 – e95eca399dfe95500c4de569efc4cc77b75e2b66a864d467df37733ec06a0ff2 TrueCrypt Setup 7.1a.exe

After installation, open the program and start creating an encrypted repository:

Next – come up with the name of the file inside which there will be an encrypted container and choose the path where it will lie:

Next – you can configure the encryption settings (you can leave it as is)

The size is chosen based on how much space will be needed for the data. To fit everything, it is better to use a minimum of 16GB flash drives. To make the container file fit on the flash drive, you need to make it the size = the size of the flash drive minus 10%, that is 8GB USB flash drive – 7.2 GB (simpler 7GB); 16GB flash drive – the file is 14.4 GB (simpler than 14GB). Also, if the container file is larger than 4gb, you will need to format the flash drive in the ntfs system (note that on the USB flash drives there is usually a fat32 file system that does not support files larger than 4gb, so if you need to transfer container file to a regular flash drive, then container must less 4gb).

In the next window, you need to invent a password and remember it (if you lose it, the data inside the container is probably impossible to recover). After that, you will need to click Next and the Format button:

At the end of the operation, it again suggests creating a container, so click Exit. The container is created 1 time. After that it can be used, as shown in the screenshot:

that is: select a free mount point (in this case drive E), then select the file itself, then click Mount (enter the password when prompted).
Now you can open the “My Computer” folder and go to the drive by the letter you selected. This is the encrypted repository (container) of information. At the end of the job, you will need to click Dismount to properly disconnect the container.

How to configure the openvpn client on linux (debian, ubuntu, mint)

and also make the prohibition of traffic leaks past vpn

in Debian: everything needs to be done as root
in Ubuntu and Mint, you need to add sudo to all commands.

1. Setup openvpn client

apt-get install openvpn

2. Make sure that the openvpn clien version is 2.1 or above

openvpn --version

3. Start
although the easiest way is to run from the line with the specification of the configuration file

openvpn --config client.ovpn

but we will do it in the Debian way
– move the client files (crt, key, ovpn) to the /etc/openvpn directory

mv dir-with-crt-key-ovpn-files/* /etc/openvpn

(after that you need to check that the configuration file is called client.conf – if not – rename)
– start the service

/etc/init.d/openvpn start

With the following command you can see the process

ps aux | grep openvpn

You can also check by going to the sites that define ip
now works, there is a little bit to adjust

4. Configuring startup on reboot
install sysv-rc-conf package

aptitude install sysv-rc-conf

run the command sysv-rc-conf and set or disable from 2-5 levels of the mark on the service openvpn
(Similarly, you can disable the network manager, if necessary)
Exit the utility with the “q” command

5. In order for the traffic not to go past vpn, we’ll run openvpn with the script:

create and fill the script:

echo '#!/bin/bash' > /etc/openvpn/
echo '/etc/init.d/openvpn restart && sleep 5 && ip r d `ip r s | grep default`' >> /etc/openvpn/

make it executable:

chmod +x /etc/openvpn/

Now you can run it from the command line by simple typing



sh /etc/openvpn/

as well as double-clicking
