    Looking for a encryption software allow

    1) using keyfiles on preboot authentication
    2) using work with external card smart rfid
    3) having encrypted bootloader or having the bootloader on usb drive
    4) Use of hardware token for authentication

    any recommend?

    Maybe DriveCrypt Plus Pack. Maybe DiskCryptor. You'd have to read all the documentation and/or install the trials/program on a test box.

    PD

    If you intend to use DriveCrypt Plus Pack, go for older working version.
    This is because the new version has serious vulnerability - allows you to view files inside hidden OS partition even though you're in Decoy OS.

    SecureStar is trash, Use DiskCryptor its Free and opensource!

    Broad choice in configuration of booting an encrypted OS. Support for various multi-boot options.
    • Full compatibility with third party boot loaders (LILO, GRUB, etc.).
    • Encryption of system and bootable partitions with pre-boot authentication.
    • Option to place boot loader on external medium and to authenticate using the key medium.
    • Support for key files.

    I used it for like a year without any problems. Windows 7 x64!

    Thanks, but I must be getting senile...accessing the "decoy" files from the "hidden OS" is billed as feature, and I can't quite understand why this would be 'bad'. You need to authenticate to get into the "hidden" OS. Now, if it was filed under a Bug Report and said "able to access "hidden" file system from "decoy" OS...well then that would be bad! What am I missing?

    We must think alike as I was thinking the exact same thing.
