Remark: 2. is actually 4. - the board software shows it up as 2. ?!
- VC is portable
but it requires admin rights. It needs to access the disk directly, so I think there is not way to do that without admin/superuser rights on any of the supported os.
- You can greate 700MB / 4,something GB container and use it, I dont see a problem?!
Excuse my poorly formatted reply earlier...(It was posted on my phone :P)
To clarify for idea 2 I meant to setup the cd as a readonly traveler disk (Not sure if this is possible for the average user)
The disk would contain a directory structure like this:
CD/DVD/FLASHDRIVE Root dir :
verracrypt.exe (Could be named anything... this is what would be launched for mobile decryption)
Encryption (Directory, Contains encrypted containers as well as tmp files) This would contain:
VerraCrypt (Directory, Contains any files needed by verracrypt.exe)
Containers (Directory for containers)
Excuse my terrible ascii art...
The system would work as follows:
Step 1: User chooses mobile option in verracrypt they either chose to use a writable media (Like a portable hdd) or a read-only medium (CD/DVD)
The only difference between the two would be that the read-only option would require the user to supply the files that he/she wanted to encrypt now (as obviously they couldn't be written later :P)
Step 2: User selects medium (If using read-only they have to option to insert a CD/DVD or create a .iso file that they can burn themselves)
Step 3: The medium is prepared (For the writable medium this would include formatting it to the users preference, For the read-only medium this would be the location of the .iso file and the size of it.)
Step 4: Configure the containers (For either media this would be preparing the containers there names as well as there passwords, here is were the files for the read-only medium would be supplied.)
Step 5 Finalization: (Final Configuration Writes all files and gives option to automatically burn a CD/DVD for read-only users)
Decryption would work as follows:
Step 1: User launches Verracrypt.exe (Ui looks like this):
Verracrypt Portable VX.xxx
Name Mount/Dismount Status
Container1 mount Not Mounted N/A
Container2 mount Not Mounted N/A
Container3 dismount Mounted Container Options
Add/Remove (only on writable)) Dismount All Preferences (Again only permanent on writable)
They can mount, unmount, add/remove and configure there containers
The benefits of this is it is all self contained all required files are on the medium and it much easier to set up for more basic users
NOTE; Only after writing this whole darn thing did I realize traveler disk is just this...
So just add the read-only CD/DVD Feature. (I kid you not i'm literally smacking my head on my desk right now.... that took soooooooo long to write :P)
Sorry if there is any spelling mistakes or grammar issues (If you find any please tell me)
Any suggestions are happy accepted :) (I cant think of everything my self)
