Definition: ScramDisk


A Windows program that created encrypted volumes on the hard disk. ScramDisk supported several cryptographic algorithms and allowed data to be concealed in an existing WAV audio file (see steganography).

ScramDisk for Linux and DriveCrypt
No longer supported, ScramDisk for Linux (SD4L) was also created. An enhanced, commercial version called DriveCrypt is available from SecurStar GmbH (www.securstar.com).
