-* Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as
-a real disk.
-* Encrypts an entire partition or storage device such as USB flash drive
- or hard drive.
-* Encrypts a partition or drive where Windows is installed (pre-boot
-* Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.
-* Parallelization and pipelining allow data to be read and written as

-* Provides plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to

Since version 6.1a of TrueCrypt, a number of header files from RSA
Laboratories are required during the compilation. I've separated the
installation of these into a separate package called cryptoki rather

This script does not create the static GUI build seen elsewhere (see

+NOTE: There is no direct link to the TrueCrypt source archive, as such,
+it must be downloaded manually from within a web browser.
