COMODO Disk Encryption 2.0.138413.24 BETA
« on: March 30, 2010, 09:31:15 AM »
Hello Everybody,

We are happy to announce that COMODO Disk Encryption 2.0.138413.24 BETA has been released.
COMODO Disk Encryption protects your sensitive information by enabling you to encrypt any physical disk on your system using several encryption algorithms and cipher modes.

COMODO Disk Encryption offers three varieties of data protection depending on the amount of sensitive data:

Whole Disk Encryption
        - You can encrypt any physical disk that contains information to be secured  using different encryption algorithms even if that physical disk contains an Operating system installed. You just need to initiate the encryption process with appropriate encryption settings and the encryption process will continue in background.
       - COMODO Disk Encryption loader does not depend on your hardware configuration or the Operating System loader.
       - COMODO Disk Encryption loader does not depend on your system configuration, you may have multiple Operating Systems installed on several physical disks.
       - The authentication is performed at boot time to allow encrypted operating systems to boot. The authentication can be carried out using different authentication types with various levels of security:
            * Password Authentication – Set a password of your choice as authentication type to encrypt the required physical disks. The password must be entered whenever the system is started to enable assessing the encrypted disks.
            * USB Key Authentication - Configure USB memory as authentication type to encrypt required physical disks. This key must be plugged-in in the system whenever the system is started to enable assessing the encrypted disks.
            * Authentication with both Password and USB Key – It's a combination of both password and USB keys for authentication. This is a highly secure practice that meets the classic two factor authentication criteria of 'something you own' plus 'something you know'.

Virtual Disk Encryption
        - With virtual disk encryption functionality you will be able to create virtual encrypted disks to save your information securely. This functionality will use (create/open) an image file to emulate a physical disk.
        - The main application lets you dynamically mount and un-mount virtual encrypted disks.
Image files can be used (created/opened) on the local machine or on a network shared folder.
        - The encrypted virtual disks are accessible from Windows explorer or from any other third-party software.
        - Virtual disks use sparse files as disk images if the underlying file system supports it.


File/Folder Encryption (ZIP Encryption)
        - With File/Folder encryption you are able to create encrypted archives (ZIP). These archives store sensitive files and/or folders in a single encrypted compressed file.
        - The main application lets you manage (create, extract) these encrypted archives.

The Encryption Engine
The encryption engine is a multi-thread encryption engine which supports the following encryption algorithms:
        - AES;
        - Serpent;
        - Twofish;
and the following cipher modes:
        - Cipher-block chaining (CBC);
        - Cipher feedback (CFB);
        - Output feedback (OFB);
   
What's the best about it is that all encryption/decryption processes are performed:
        - On-the-fly (OTF) - without disturbing you during your work.
        - Fault tolerant:
                 * You may turn-off your computer during the encryption process and continue it after restart.
                 * Even if a power failure or a system crash occurs during the encryption process, you will be able to resume that encryption process, to avoid data loss.

Hi Ionut,

Looks good, any idea when there will be a "rescue" medium available? like TrueCrypt provides with it's boot cd forced to burn before encryption?
So you can always boot your system from it if something corrupts the key header or MBR etc?

Hello MetalShaun,

We are very interested about this error. Please help me to investigate this.
1. This scenario is stable reproducible?
2. Do you have any others devices with removable storage attached to your computer like floppy, memory card readers .... ?
3. Please open My Computer and send me a screen shoot.
Thank you.

I am afraid i have just built a new comp ( which CDE is running fine on) and my old comp is out of action. But i will try to help you fix it. The bug was reproduce able after a few restarts and the only peripheral device , other than mouse and keyboard, i had plugged in was a blue tooth adapter no other drives or memory sticks.

I also had Comodo backup installed which would do a weekly backup from my data drive to my back up partition.

Cheers
Shaun

I have tryed this beta version.. It looks good, but there are no more advanced configuration options..   I can not set the algorithm... i only can set it on small, medium or high..!
  Unfortunately, I will uninstall this beta version an get back to the stable!

Hello,

The custom encryption settings step will be available in the Release version.

Unfortunately, I will uninstall this beta version an get back to the stable!
Do not use BETAs on your production machine. Beta is for testing purpose.

i recently reinstalled windows after setting up a RAID array and now after installing CDE i get these errors.


I am getting quite fed up with the bugs in comodo products, Evpn has stopped working with the latest beta, CBU sychronisation still causes considerable slowdown on my machine and now CDE dies to.

I am running windows 7 home 64bit
CIS 4 latest

Cheers
Shaun
