    Hello Ajay. In your commentary i don’t find TrueCrypt. This also is Open Source and possibly is (for me) the best tool of encription available at present. It must be in the list!

    This web page is in good way.

    Can’t believe TrueCrypt is not on the list. It is the best open source software for encryption.
