BestCrypt creates and supports encrypted virtual volumes for Linux. BestCrypt volume is accessible as a regular filesystem on a correspondent mount point.

The data stored on a BestCrypt volume are stored in the container file. A container is a regular file, so it is possible to backup, move or copy it to other disk (CD-ROM or network, for instance) and continue to access encrypted data using BestCrypt.

BestCrypt supports the following encryption algorithms: GOST (256-bit key) in Cipher Feedback mode and RIJNDAEL (256-bit key), IDEA (128-bit key), Blowfish (256-bit key), Blowfish-448 (448-bit key), Blowfish (128-bit key) DES (56-bit key), Triple DES (168-bit key), CAST (128-bit key), TWOFISH (256-bit key) in Cipher Block Chaining mode.

In general, installation and using BestCrypt for Linux is very easy:
