Submission + - Auditors Release Verified Repositories of TrueCrypt

Trailrunner7 writes: As the uncertainty surrounding the end of TrueCrypt continues, members of the security community are working to preserve a known-good archive of the last version of the open source encryption software released before the developers inserted a warning about potential unfixed bugs in the software and ended development.

The message that the TrueCrypt posted about the security of the software also was included in the release of version 7.2a. The OCAP team decided to focus on version 7.1a and created the verified repository by comparing the SHA2 hashes with files found in other TrueCrypt repositories. So the files are the same as the ones that were distributed as 7.1a.

“These files were obtained last November in preparation for our audit, and match the hash reported by iSec in their official report from phase I of the audit,” said Kenn White, part of the team involved in the TrueCrypt audit.
