OSXCrypt is a framework, a kernel extension and a command line utility that allows the creation, manipulation and attaching of a TrueCrypt -compatible volume, and in the near future, any kind of disk-based encryption available through a modular architecture.

Some of the differences between TrueCrypt and OSXCrypt are:
  • OSXCrypt is a kernel module, and not based on MacFuse. That gives the project a really different approach.
  • The OSXCrypt Framework is based on the paradigm of implementing a modular kernel module that can be used with OTHER cyphers. Implementing dm-cryppt
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Yep, apparently still dead, the link takes you to a dead page. So I guess that is it for this app, tis no more it seems.

Quite a bummer, it sounded interesting and I was looking forward to tinkering around in it. But luckily there are other cool encryption programs, and I just found a neat steganogrophy app :P. But don't waste your time with this page anymore, adios!

P.S. I suggested some similar software, that are all free as of the time of writing this. So hopefully if you were hoping to download this, and since you now can't, you can one of the three I suggested useful instead. Good luck! :P :)

  • The OSXCrypt Framework is based on the paradigm of implementing a modular kernel module that can be used with OTHER cyphers. Implementing dm-cryppt on mac, for example, is now trivially easy.
  • The GUI is coming even here, thanks to the efforts of a volunteer.
