VeraCrypt v1.26.7

A free open source disk encryption software for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. based on TrueCrypt.

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.

VeraCrypt can mount TrueCrypt volumes. It also can convert them to VeraCrypt format.


  • Available for Linux, MacOSX (10.7+) and Windows.
  • Increased security and many vulnerabilities fixed compared to TrueCrypt
  • Support both UEFI and MBR for Windows system encryption

Release Notes:

1.26.7 (October 1st, 2023):

All OSes:
Security: Ensure that XTS primary key is different from the secondary key when creating volumes
Issue unlikely to happen thanks to random generator properties but this check must be added to prevent attacks
Reference: CCSS,NSA comment at page 3:
Remove TrueCrypt Mode support. Version 1.25.9 can be used to mount or convert TrueCrypt volumes.
Complete removal of RIPEMD160 and GOST89 algorithms. Legacy volumes using any of them cannot be mounted by VeraCrypt anymore.
Add support for BLAKE2s as new PRF algorithm for both system encryption and standard volumes.
Introducing support for EMV banking smart cards as keyfiles for non-system volumes.
No need for a separate PKCS#11 module configuration.
Card PIN isn't required.
Generates secure keyfile content from unique, encoded data present on the banking card.
Supports all EMV standard-compliant banking cards.
Can be enabled in settings (go to Settings->Security Tokens).
Developed by a team of students from the Institut national des sciences appliquées de Rennes.
