DESCRIPTION

DiskProtection encrypts data totally invisible for the user while writing
to disk.  All blocks are encrypted, so the directories are protected, too.
DiskProtection supports all exec devices, i.e.  harddrive partititions,
floppy disks, but not the RAM-disk.  Any filesystem can be used.

It features:
 - encryption with IDEA, FEAL, DES
 - (XPK-)interface for additional algorithms
 - configurable with easy to use preferences program
 - encryption can be changed anytime
 - resident passwords (for use with mailboxes)
 - access protection
 - builtin screenblanker
 - GUI driven, localized
 - German and English documentation (ASCII, DVI, AmigaGuide)
 - context sensitive online help
 - ...
