Knox 1.5 allows full disk encryption

updated 11:40 am EDT, Mon July 16, 2007

Knox 1.5 update

The latest version of Knox has been released, bringing it to v1.5. The program is used to create encrypted data vaults, guarded with AES-128, a standard reputedly used by the National Security Agency. Users can also have Knox create automatic backups, which are also encrypted in their own right. The update enables the encryption of volumes other than the boot volume, meaning that entire computers can be protected, as well as external drives and USB keys. Users can now also open vaults without a Knox license, and rely on an assistant to help produce the most secure passwords. System requirements have been raised to Mac OS X 10.4.9; a single user license costs $30.

    No Full Disk Encryption

    Knox does NOT allow full disk encryption, there is no such application available on the Mac. Knox is simple a nice GUI for creating, managing, etc. encrypted disk images, a default feature of Mac OS X.
