Hello everyone. I have some questions about Truecrypt. 1. People say that Serpent is 'slower' than Rijndael. Do they mean that it is slower to initiallly encrypt a drive with Serpent, or that if I use Serpent for system encryption the general performance of my computer will be degraded? 2. Let's say the NSA was after me. How much more secure would it be to use cascaded encryption? I mean, if I only use one password, don't they still only have a single password to crack? Why bother with multiple ciphers? 3. Any information regarding UK key disclosure laws would be much appreciated.
