    TrueCrypt removed from Kali 2.0

    Hey all. I noticed that Truecrypt 7.1a is no longer bundled with Kali 2.0. I checked the bug-tracker and it was still an open issue (0002432). Is there any reason for its removal?

    I feel your pain, tocktick, I ~love~ Truecrypt! Way back when I saved all the installers, and have added it to my Kali, but I haven't found any way to associate .tc files to it. Instead I have to do Applications - Accessories - Truecrypt and browse to a .tc within the program. It works.
    As an aside, I guess you can open a .tc using "cryptsetup" but I haven't tried that yet.

    What is the 'recommended' way to create (smallish [few gig]) encrypted volumes/images now that Truecrypt is no longer secure?

    I used to keep a lot of my sensitive directories in a Truecrypt volume/image (mount after boot) that I would symlink to. Made backing up & transporting my sensitive material on removable media a breeze...

    Any help on this would be most welcome.

    Cheers, aG

    You can use dm-crypt in conjunction with a loop device.

    Code:
    fallocate -l 1G container
    losetup -f container
    cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/loop0
    cryptsetup open /dev/loop0 anything
    mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/anything
    mount /dev/mapper/anything /mnt
    
    umount /mnt
    cryptsetup close anything
    losetup -d /dev/loop0

    Thank you Name Taken, I look forward to checking out dm-crypt as per your suggestion, aG.

    I love VeraCrypt... It should be included in Kali 2. I believe it is the best maintained version of TrueCrypt.
    You can download it form https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/releases/view/616110, unpack the installer and run the installer in Terminal.
