Aladdin Secret Disk

The program uses an interesting algorithm of generation of sequence of random numbers. In principle, some modern chipsets are equipped with a very good generator which gives not pseudo-random but pure random numbers. That is why such tricks will die with time, but today, when all programs are to comply with a definite standard, we can make use of them.

The main settings of the system. The first item is the most interesting - it allows improving the integrity of data.

Additional parameters. Automatic locking of a computer in case of at least one secret disc is a very useful feature. The Red button is a powerful tool, and you should think over the key combination in order not to lose all data when working in some other program. The default combination suits very well here.

One of the most intriguing features of the Secret Disk is "work under duress".

When you are creating a secret disc you must define its size. If you choose a wrong variant, you will may face problems in future.

Encryption algorithms can be different. Moreover, you can activate encryption modules which were absent when the program was under development. But a 128-bit length for an internal algorithm is sufficient for the majority of applications.

A password for an access under duress is created for each disc separately, and separately from a main password.

Such feature weakens the protection, that is why you are to decide whether this will be useful for you. When you are making a copy of the key the guide recommends you to create it on a diskette, because a file can sometimes be accessed if you create the copy on a hard disc and then delete it.

This is a disc administrator which serves for the most of operations with discs: settings, creation, deletion, backup copying etc.

At this stage of connection a possibility of choosing a name for a disc is very convenient.

Now the disc looks like other partitions on the hard disc both for the operating system and for programs. It will be seen until it is disabled.

The file archiving is another powerful tool.

On the whole, I'd like to thank Aladdin for the excellent documentation of the system, both printed and electronic, with its helpful detailed steps.
