portable encrypted volume creator
Hi, I'd like to backup my stuff to an encrypted virtual volume on USB drive and then be able to open it in MS Windows easily (in case I lose access to my home linux machine). What tool do you advise?
Google tells me truecrypt is the thing I need, but unfortunately truecrypt is not in Ubuntu repos (because of licencing issues, if I got that right). Then, google told me that standard way to do what I want in Ubuntu is through dm-crypt/LUKS. But, then there is no way to use that volume on Windows (or at least it's not trivial). So is there a tool which is in Ubuntu repos and for which there is a free tool on MS Windows which allows me to backup my home dir to an encrypted file on my USB disk?
I do not need all that fancy boot sector encrypthion, plausible deniability. All I need is to rsync my home directory to the USB drive and have it encrypted there. So, what's the standard way to do that?
