What do you guys think about TRESOR? Is it viable protection against cold-boot attacks?
>The study said that those who haven't taken any or few steps are those confident the surveillance "is serving the public interest." Others simply said "they are not concerned about the surveillance programs," Pew Research found.
I used to encrypt the two flash drives I own that have a copy of what remains of my 4chan folder and stuff but I went from duo 8GB flash drives to 16 then 32 and didn't want to be fucked buying two pairs of 64GB ones to replace my current two 32GB ones so I just uploaded the .txt file containing my passwords to my mega account as well as uploading all really personal stuff I had. Still have personal stuff that tell who I am on the internet on my flash drives among the porn and my modest archive of shit but it's no longer like, extensive lists of conversations I've had and the names of my friends so nothing would be too fucked if someone were to discover them. It's pretty okay. I'd go for full encryption if I didn't already leave my identify liable to being compromised from being an irresponsible dumbass on the net to a few people.
1. I know full well that the NSA wouldn't give a shit what's on my hard drive.
2. Hard drive encryption reduces read/write performance.
I have no reason to encrypt my drives, so why would I?
What encryption algorithm is best on TrueCrypt? does it even matter?
Use straight up AES-256. The others aren't more secure, but they are more slow.
These encryption algorithms are really robust, and it's the implementation of them that's the problem. Truecrypt 7.1a is a solid implementation.
>I know full well that the NSA wouldn't give a shit what's on my hard drive.
Actually the NSA does give a shit about what's on your hard drive- that's the entire fucking problem.
Might as well turn off your computer now and stop using electronics at all if you're this paranoid. This isn't actually the worst idea in the world. It's a good idea if you care about say, the 4th amendment.
You can read the audit.
If you don't have FDE with dm-crypt (no LUKS) and USB boot device that auto ejects, then you don't know SHIT about encryption / OPSEC.~ » lsblk

My SSD is completely indistinguishable from random data because it doesn't have LUKS headers.
