A few years back, I was using the ucrypt utility on CentOS 5. Now I am using Fedora 11 and need ucrypt for file encryption and decryption, but I don't have a backup of the old system. Where can I find ucrypt now?

  • I prefer you to go for either truecrypt or cryptsetup

  • I have some old files which were encrypted using ucrypt. I am not sure how to decrypt those files using truecrypt or cryptsetup. Can you please suggest on that too.

The package you are probably looking for is cfs-utils. A google search should find you some RPMs that you can use.


Try yum if it finds anything:

yum provides \*/ucrypt

I couldn't find anything, so I'd simply compile it myself. There is a project on GitHub providing ucrypt.
