Default Can you trust 'NSA-proof' TrueCrypt? Cough up some dough and find out

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/10...ecurity_audit/

Security researchers are raising funds to conduct an independent audit of TrueCrypt, the popular disk encryption utility.

TrueCrypt is widely used as a tool to strongly encrypt and decrypt entire drives, partitions or files in a virtual disk. It can also hide volumes of data and said to be easy to use.

The source code for the Windows, Linux and Mac OS X utility is publicly available for people to inspect and verify, but this has not been enough to convince every cryptography guru that it's entirely secure.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
