What software do you use to encrypt your USB Stick?

Looking for a straightforward/simple to use tool to encrypt my usb stick. Been using VeraCrypt before but it kinda became a pain. Perhaps I should just get one of the SanDisk Secure Access or Kingston Secured Sticks which come with software that does just that?

    Why did VeraCrypt don't work out?

  • If you don't want to use this stick on windows, you can use luks.

    I have a Kingston flash drive that comes with hardware encryption.. Works fine for me and it isn't very expensive. Plus it's faster than all of my non-encryption flash drives from other brands.

    Look at the image provided by Ympker. That is a USB stick, which is an abbr. for "unified sex byte". Look at the lower right black section. There are two holes. That tells the expert that this stick can store 2 bytes.

    There is also the metallic upper part (with some kind of condom to the left) but for that I can't help you; I don't know what that is good for but I have the suspicion that @WSS is behind it and that it serves purposes of unspeakable promiscuity *blush

    My favourite prime number is 42. - Really cool people have their home network on a plastic router and a 0.0.0.0/4. Could be /2 but it's always good to have some reserves ...

    Seems like a solid choice^^ I only need a few GBs. 32GB or so will be fine :)

    Got myself an hardware encrypted disk as well... https://istorage-uk.com/product/diskashur/

    Using it for high sensitive stuff like school marks, tests and projects, documents and similar. Can highly suggest it! :)

    (Also got QubesOS on a partition on it... love it.)

  • Anything that needs to be encrypted would probably be done using OpenSSL for me.

    Why dont you simply encrypt is using the winrar or any other folder encryption method?

    That Being Said

    If I were you

    I would simply make my usb bootable (any linux image approx 500mb -1000mb) and then encrypt it and carry it around with me :-)

    Wouldn't that (Linux Live OS) require each and every PC I use to have the option to choose to Boot from USB? I cant do that at e.g. the Uni PCs..

    I use TrueCrypt...should switch to VeraCrypt...and partition encryption. You pick up my thumbdrive (er pendrive er stick) and it's apparently random unformatted garbage.
