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, SCRM and custom algorithms
      - (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
      - ...

CHANGES

      New Features:
      - fast, but unsafe encryption algorithm
      - DPInit, a tool to start DiskProtection without mounting anything
      - example source code for your own encryption libraries
      Bug Fixes:
      - "Hide in File" was somehow buggy
      - sorting order of XPK libraries was reversed
