CipherDisk protects data
SubRosaSoft.com today announced , which offers on-the-fly data protection on any internal or external volume. SubRosaSoft CipherDisk provides "driver level" 448-bit transparent encryption for Mac OS X volumes: "Once you convert a plain volume to an encrypted volume, it will be inaccessible to anyone until you enter a password to unlock it. When unlocked, the drive will run and behave normally like a regular volume." It supports both Panther and Jaguar and uses either Blowfish (448-bit), TEA (128-bit), or SRS (128-bit) encryption. It is available for $80.
