Pre-Alpha testing started

IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE THIS PRE-ALPHA RELEASE IN PRODUCTION, OR ANY OTHER CRITICAL WAY!

Dear community,

we posted a preliminary alpha build of the CipherShed installer (signed) on github:

Debug build

Non-debug build

The build is the result of

(git clean -ndX ; git clean -nd) | sort -u | sed ‘s/^Would remove //’ | xargs -rd ‘\n’ tar cvzf /tmp/ciphershed-build-`git rev-parse HEAD`-sideeffects-`date +%s`.tgz

This current build has not undergone an audit yet. It was built on a machine connected to the Internet. It was not verified by anyone. This build is intended for testing only.

Feel free to test this build for its functionality (probably best in a VM), in particular the following aspects need testing:

  • Upgrading / migrating from TrueCrypt 7.1a to CipherShed
  • Full-disk encryption
