Today in Tech – 1996

SourceForge - Hace 4 horas 13 mins

On this day in 1996 telecommunications giant AT&T and Microsoft announced their alliance to promote Microsoft’s World Wide Web browser, Internet Explorer. The move was designed to allow both companies to gain easier entrance into the rapidly growing Internet business at the time. Under the deal both companies were to promote and jointly distribute Internet Explorer and AT&T’s Internet service. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement, as it pushed AT&T’s goal of expanding its long-distance telephone service and was another move for Microsoft to offset its late entry into the online computing software market.

VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX ( and based on TrueCrypt 7.1a. It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks. It also solves many vulnerabilities and security issues found in TrueCrypt. This enhanced security adds some delay ONLY to the opening of encrypted partitions without any performance impact to the application use phase. This is acceptable to the legitimate owner but it makes it much harder for an attacker to gain access to the encrypted data. All released files are PGP signed with key ID=0x54DDD393, available on key servers and downloadable at VeraCrypt can mount TrueCrypt volumes. It also can convert them to VeraCrypt format.
