SubRosaSoft CipherDisk provides "driver level" 448-bit transparent on-the-fly encryption for OS X volumes. Once you convert a plain volume to an encrypted volume, it will be inaccessible to anyone until you enter a password to unlock it. When unlocked, the drive will run and behave normally like a regular volume.

This software is old and outdated. Its not compatible with anything that is 10.3.9 or higher. Subrosa better wakeup, their customers are going to start using other programs (like me, I'm using Tresor in place CipherDisk).

New version is a quantum leap over the previous one. How about a screenlock utility?

Diskcopy does disk images only...
It also only does AES 128 bit (CipherDisk does AES256).

CipherDisk does CDs, DVDs, firewire drives, etc...
With none of the disk image size limitations.

If you want password protected DVDs, CDs, or external hard drives - using encryption designed by 2 of the world's foremost experts on cryptography.... Cipherdisk is for you.

Disk Utility does AES encrypted volumes, and is free with OS X, so all this really gives you is Blowfish. The other encryption algorithms it provides are insecure enough that you may as well not bother.

128-Bit or 448-Bit, it does not matter. If the implementation is weak (i.e. no crypto experts designed the software), then it is just a question of time, until someone finds a way around it.
You can still recover the unencrypted data from hard disks and other media, if you convert an existing disk to the CipherDisk format.
Ask your local data recovery experts!

The encryption WAS designed by cryptography experts... in fact it was designed by perhaps the world's best cryptographers.

Blowfish and AES are currently recognised as 2 of the strongest algorithms in the world, written by 2 of the world's foremost experts.

Feel free (in fact we encourage you - just for a laugh) to take a CipherDisk encrypted disk to your local data recovery agent. If they recover it make sure they tell the press.... because they would immediately be recognised as the best cryptographic expert on the planet.

And these crypto-experts designed “CipherDisk”, right?

Everyone can use “strong-cryptography” today, but this says absolute nothing about the security of the end-product.

And with CypherDisk, i can use this “strong-cryptography” to encrypt my disks. Great.

But there is a “little” problem If i convert my existing disks to the encrypted “CipherDisk” format:

I recommend you, that you look at the source code of PGP. It will help you to understand, how to design secure software.

By the way, did you read the cryptanalysis papers from Schneier, Kocher & others? Probably not...
