The mysterious disappearance of TrueCrypt

It is difficult to imagine a time without TrueCrypt. I do not even remember how I first got to know of TrueCrypt. I remember, however, moving the mouse randomly to create a new container. Young and foolish at that time, I thought it was a gimmick – not knowing that random number generation can be such a big pain. However, the software itself was great to use. Ever dependable. It had an element of mystery as well – the password for ‘duress’ where you could dump dummy data. It made you feel like a bit of a spy.
