I'd like to suggest you TrueCrypt, it's OpenSource and uses an "on the
Main Features (from the website):
* Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as
a real disk.
* Encrypts an entire hard disk partition or a storage device such
as USB flash drive.
* Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.
* Provides two levels of plausible deniability, in case an
adversary forces you to reveal the password:
1) Hidden volume (steganography – more information may be found
2) No TrueCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be
distinguished from random data).
* Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Blowfish (448-bit key), CAST5,
Serpent, Triple DES, and Twofish.
Mode of operation: LRW (CBC supported as legacy).
