DriveCrypt Plus Pack boot denial program

DriveCrypt Plus Pack boot denial program

Post by urgeto » Mon, 07 Jul 2003 16:48:36


I liked the idea of having an encryption program that had "boot
authorization"...in other words, before a pc would boot, you had to
give it a password before the BIOS would boot the pc. I didn't want
anyone being able to use recovery programs on my virtual memory or
scout my pc for "tracks" still lodged in forgotten areas of my
programs.

I bought and used DriveCrypt Plus Pack and encrypted my C:drive and my
programs partition AND my backups partition. (second hard drive).. and
then aftermonths of use, the program suddenly wouldn't accept my
password! Boy was I screwed! The designer of DCPP, Mr. Hafner,
responded immediately to my email and I called him. Through a process
of elimination, we discovered that the problem was my KEYBOARD (and
maybe my BIOS version)! My monitor showed a correct password, but
when we connected my keyboard to a different pc, it was apparent that
two of my aschii characters were not working. I bought a new keyboard
and was able to get into my system.. In the process, I learned a
lesson the hard way, that I have to be able to access backups in case
I need to reformat my hardrive and re-install my OS... now I don't
encrypt 'it...I make an accessible "CLEAN" copy (nothing incriminating
on it) in case I need one.

I think that a program such as DCPP is the way to go to prevent
"authorities" from ever being able to search your computer....BUT,
don't put yourself in a situation where your data is irretreviably
lost due to a hardware problem.. Encrypt your crucial data, but use
DriveCrypt with 1044 bit container encryption to burn a CD( or PGP, or
whatever), so you won't lose everything IF the worst happens..then
hide that CD. Also, follow the "rescue" instructions for if/when the
worst happens" when you buy your program, and export everything
necessary in case the worst does happen... in other words, export
those key stores and such to floppy disks, along with the "rescue.exe"
programs necessary to use them.

I want to publicly thank Mr. Hafner and DriveCrypt Plus Pack for their
customer service, EVEN when I had not bought a service contract.

I recommend their products and their company: www.securstar.com

1. DriveCrypt versus DriveCrypt Plus Pak

2. 1602 Boot Error IP FW Plus IPSEC 56 Feature Pack

Hey Folks -

I picked up a 8 MB Flash with a IP FW Plus IPSEC 56 Feature Pack image on it
to do some testing on my 1602 lab
routers. I added a 8 MB SIMM to accommodate the newer IOS but unfortunately
I get the following error when the router boots. I am not sure if the SIMM I
put in is parity checking or not but it seems to work with the older IOS
(12.0). I am not sure if the router crash is a problem with SIMM I put in or
something funking with the FLASH/IOS I am trying to load. This is the IOS
image on the FLASH: c1600-k8osy-mz.123-5a.bin

Anyone else running the IP FW Plus IPSEC 56 Feature Pack on a 1602 ? If so,
how much RAM are you running.
