Easy Crypt is simply a Graphical GUI of the simplest nature for the Security Command Line product TrueCrypt.

Easy Crypt has been accepted onto Hardy (Ubuntu 8.04)

Easy Crypt creates Crypts as files on existing file systems, it does not support full encrypted partitions, this is too advanced and dangerous for the intended audience: however a package name GDecrypt exists for this job

Easy Crypt works with TrueCrypt V4.3a and V5.1 (as of
And with 6.x ->: 6.1 (as of

Easy Crypt currently:

    * Stores preferences at ~/.config/easycrypt.conf
    * Makes a crypt for the user at ~/easycrypt-crypt
    * Allows users to select a size for the crypt
    * Allows users to select & change the crypt password
    * Allows users to mount and unmount the crypt
    * They are mounted at /media/crypt
    * Easy crypt looks for Truecrypt prompts download/install (deb package from truecrypt's website)
    * All interaction with Easy Crypt is done via a Status Icon in the Tray
    * The default encryption is Whirlpool
    * The default file type is FAT
    * The program is ready for multilingual support, via launchpad
    * All crypts are portable to other Operating systems

The Expert mode allows

    * Choice of crypt location
    * Multiple mounted crypts
    * Choice of crypt encryption algorithm
