VeraCrypt is an encryption program and the successor of TrueCrypt. With the help of VeraCrypt, encrypted containers can be created. To decrypt ( called “to mount” ) the container, a password is needed. The encrypted (“mounted”) VeraCrypt container will then appear as a new drive on the computer. All data stored on this drive is automatically encrypted. Programs can still access this data, because they are encrypted in memory. The storage space of this virtual drive is determined by the size of the container. Once created, the size of the container can no longer be adjusted. The project lead must therefore estimate the amount of data that will be stored when creating the container.
