|Truecrypt on Chromebook||lk||5/31/12 10:17 AM|
I am seriously considering purchasing Samsung's newly released Chromebook but have a couple of doubts:
First, is it possible to access (ie, "mount") Truecrypt files in Chrome OS (whether from an external or internal drive)?
Second, is it possible to use the system while logged out of my Google account, or is permanent log in required?

I looked into this a little while back, my understanding is it is NOT possible.
Hope this helps,

Truecrypt compatibility would be an excellent feature for Chrome OS. If anyone know of an alternate means of encrypting data whether within the 16GB internal drive or within G.Drive itself, please post.
I require encryption for my work and will not make the leap into Chromebook without this function.

Set up your own encrypted server that meets your needs.

Data on the 16GB internal drive is encrypted automatically - have a look at this post for more details.

you can ssh into a openVPN server.. which is encrypted secure connection. to acess your files. you know Google wants you to do everything in the cloud. i have never mounted an truecrypt file before on a chromebook. it should work if there are no software required. lets hope a google ninja can clear this up for us.
second, yes a chromebook hard drive is automatically encrypted. you don't need to truecrypt the hard drive. the /home folder is safe and secure. you will need your google password to unencrypt your data/personal settings such as bookmarks.
and yes, you can use the chromebook in guest mode without using your google account. when you log off, all traits of evidence is gone.
