Encrypt a Single-Boot Windows System: TrueCrypt Techniques
(Page 1 of 5 )
In this second part of a three-part series on using TrueCrypt to encrypt your Windows 7 operating system, I'll walk you through the process of encrypting a single-boot system. We'll cover creating the rescue disk, wipe mode, and more.
Encrypting a Single-Boot System
To keep this tutorial simple, I will show you how to encrypt a single-boot system. Select the "Single-boot" option and click the "Next" button.
Now you will select the encryption method you wish to apply to the volume. The default "AES" encryption algorithm and "RIPEMD-160" hash algorithm are proven and recommended for their robust protection and performance. Once you have made your selections, click the "Next" button.
Now you will enter the volume's password. Keep in mind the standard volume encryption method does not protect you with a hidden volume should you be required to divulge your password. This password is the only means to keep this volume secure, so make sure you choose a very strong password. Once you have entered your password, click the "Next" button.
This step generates a random number from your mouse movements based on the hash algorithm you selected earlier. It is important to move your mouse around the window for a few seconds so a truly random number can be generated. You will see the "Current pool content (partial)" contents change whenever you move your mouse. After you have moved the mouse around the window a few times, click the "Next" button.
TrueCrypt will now inform you that all the necessary encryption information has been created. If you want to create new keys, you can click the "Back" button and repeat the encryption process. Otherwise, click the "Next" button to continue.
