Jeffrey Sherman I've looked at this in the past, but one question remains: what is the advantage of this over TrueCrypt?

DrTeeth You beat me to it Jeffrey!

Update:- "You must install/register the software within 12 months, and cannot do so afterwards." This is a deal killer, sorry.

Graham I'm not so sure that the statement about "not able tp install it after 12 months" is correct.
I bought versioon 8.06 about 3-4 years ago. For the first year I got updates. After the the first year I can still use it, reinstall it on a clean system, register it using my original code and eveyrthing works fine. I don't of course get updates and I do get a one time message telling me that.the update license has expired

Valeria Corti @ Jeffrey: Thank you for your comment.
For data no longer needed, BestCrypt Container Encryption includes the full version of BCWipe. Read more about BCWipe on Jetico website (http://www.jetico.com/wiping-bcwipe/)

Why do I need BCWipe?
While files stored in encrypted containers are safely tucked away from intruders, recoverable traces may still exist out in the open. Hence, BCWipe is needed to clean up the mess.

Plus, Professional Support is well worth small cost.

DrTeeth @ Valeria

"To install/re-install the license after one (1) year you need to contact us"

Graham says he does *not* have to do that. That restriction is not acceptable to me so won't be buying for that reason alone. I have to say that this is the first time that I have ever come across anything like this for paid software.

Is BCWipe better than the many open source data shredders available?

Valeria Corti @ DrTeeth:
Thank you for your reply and for your feedback!

Since updates are not included after the fist year (without buying a renewal), to install / re-install the software you just need to have the download link for the latest version covered by your license.

Graham I have never needed to contact Jetico when re-installing Bestcrypt after the 1 year update/maintenance ends and have never been prompted to do so. Obviously I am reinstalling a an older version which was originally licensed.
to me. I don't find it different from any other piece of software I have purchased. Normally at the end of 1 year you no longer get updates but nothing prevents you reinstalling a copy you purchased. I intend the purchase the latest version though 8.06 appears to still work okay.
You can continue to get updates etc after 1 year at a discounted price (as is usual practice) but I also know that if you don't but wait for 2-3 years before buying updates they expect you to pay full price. The bottom line is that this is a perpetual licence not subscription software. Jetico has never been that good on the way they word their licensing.but I've never had an issue. I guess they want people to renew each year.

Linda Lawson I've used Jetico's BestCrypt *Volume* Encryption software for some three years now and never had an issue with installing the software on my system - I've changed computers a number of times since then.

The company are Finnish so there could be some language issues but I agree with Graham that you will still be able to install your software long after the 12 month period has expired...providing you keep a copy of the download of course.

Giganto Pithecus Does Jetico BestCrypt include any optimizations for use on SSD drives or with AES-NI?

S B BestCrypt certainly looks professional, and Jetico seems to understand their technology.

If I may:

1) what is the source of entropy for encryption passwords & salt?

2) is if ever necessary to defrag the *contents* inside a BestCrypt container?

3) can passwords be changed? Can I have multiple simultaneous passwords for the same container?

4) are there limits to what BestCrypt Traveller can do with existing BestCrypt containers? (e.g., can I use the combination of Traveller and BestCrypt containers as distributable, secure, almost perpetual archives?)

Thanks!

DrTeeth Jetico has said several times and using different words the same thing. Their rep's English is faultless and with all due respect, I will listen to them...unless one of you is willing to underwrite my purchase ;-) ? I would most likely buy it if it were not for this issue.

Also, they do not seem to have answered a question that has been asked several times... viz the advantages of this software over TrueCrypt.

Frank Stephens DrTeeth, I don't know if you were addressing your comment to me.

"NOTE: In Windows 8 it is not recommended to use container encryption in Storage Space Volumes, as the system may accidentally bring the volume offline in low disk space conditions and your data will be damaged. Please, use BestCrypt Volume Encryption instead."

Windows 8 Storage Spaces is a new low for a Microsoft implementation, just when I thought that they couldn't get any worse. If you use them, then it's entirely your fault. I find that all brands of high-capacity drives are notoriously unreliable, you will lose data if you use them individually. Storage Spaces are a disaster, spend the bucks and get external USB 3.0 RAID enclosures where all components and drivers along the hardware path allow Hard Disk Sentinel to see and monitor the individual drives.

Valeria Corti @ S B Thank you for your interest and for your patience - we wanted to double check your questions with our tech support.

1) what is the source of entropy for encryption passwords & salt?
When a container is created, the encryption key is generated from your password..
For this process, BestCrypt uses hash algorithms - 4 hash algorithms are available within the software.
For additional security, BestCrypt adds "Salt" random sequence to the password and performs the hash procedure several times - the number of times is called "Iterations".
The "Salt" and "Iterations" values do not affect the speed of the encryption process, instead, they slow down the process of guessing the encryption key.

BCArchive utility allows users to change the number of iterations and the size of the "Salt" sequence. As for BestCrypt, some default values are used.

The master key - the key used to encrypt the data - is generated when you move the mouse or click keyboard keys during the "Create container" procedure. It is "Seed value generation" process. The random sequence is taken from:
- cursor's coordinates
- computer time
- combination of the above values

2) is if ever necessary to defrag the *contents* inside a BestCrypt container?

BestCrypt virtual drive should be considered as a regular drive, meaning that defragmentation is also required.

3) can passwords be changed? Can I have multiple simultaneous passwords for the same container?

Yes and yes.

4) are there limits to what BestCrypt Traveller can do with existing BestCrypt containers? (e.g., can I use the combination of Traveller and BestCrypt containers as distributable, secure, almost perpetual
archives?)

Limits are that BestCrypt Traveller is to be used to mount containers in machines not equipped with Full BestCrypt.
In addition, BCTraveller:
- does not support containers encrypted with public keys
- can't change container's attributes
