A BestCrypt volume is accessible as a regular filesystem on a correspondent mount point. The data stored on a BestCrypt volume is stored in the container file. A container is a regular file or block device, so it is possible to backup, move, or copy it to other disk (CD-ROM or network, for instance) and continue to access encrypted data using BestCrypt. BestCrypt supports the following encryption algorithms: GOST in Cipher Feedback mode and BLOWFISH, DES, TWOFISH in Cipher Block Chaining mode. A container can be formatted for any filesystem supported by Linux (MINIX, EXT, EXT2, FAT, FAT32, and others) and mounted as an additional volume to any mount point.
Release Notes: BestCrypt now has support for 2.3.32+ kernels, disk access speedup, container on raw block device support, while user, group, and mode mount options were added.
