TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source Disk Encryption - Documentation - Rescue Disk - remember to make a rescue disk, cause if the MBR goes, so does your data.

TrueCrypt doesn't currently support MacOSX. This is a real issue for me. I did see that there is a project to fund the development of a MacOSX port!
Fundraising â?? Fundable â?? MacOs X Truecrypt Implementation
If this works, the code should be available from source forge. I wonder why a fork of the code was created...instead of merging these changes to the trunk of true crypt? The project looks like it is started but no release yet. :(

SSL certificates, free SSL certificates - given valid contact information

my usual process is using self signed keys. I documented that on my Apache and LAMP Notes - Dave Horner's Website page, but here the incantation is repeated.(valid for 10 years).
openssl req -new -x509 -sha1 -days 3560 -nodes -out server.crt -keyout server.key
* subdomains requiring a level 2 *, *1yr expiration - no 10 yr expiration here. *, but it does give you a trusted green fuzzy. a warning is usual with the self signed certs, and browsers for some reason don't make it easy to trust a self signed cert...
StartSSL™ Certificates & Public Key Infrastructure - StartSSL™ Free - they also provide you an automatic https://name.startssl.com OpenID based digital identity on sign up.
StartSSL-Stamping Authority - RFC 3161 compliant server, please use the /tr switch with signtool.exe, for example: signtool.exe sign /v /d /f /p /tr "http://www.startssl.com/timestamp"
A free SSL certificate for your web server – Jason Codes - free certificates are also chained which means configuration can be a little tricky as there are a few traps you can fall into. If you don't setup the chain correctly on your server you can run into compatibility issues with clients that may not be immediately obvious.
