-[[!meta title="Opening TrueCrypt volumes using cryptsetup"]]
-
-On 28 May 2014, the [*TrueCrypt* website](http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/) announced that the
-project was no longer maintained and recommended users to find
-alternate solutions. That website now reads:
-
-> WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues.
-
-*TrueCrypt* was removed in Tails 1.2.1.
-
-<div class="tip">
-
-<p>We recommend that you use [[Tails encrypted persistence|doc/first_steps/persistence]] or [[LUKS encrypted
-volumes|/doc/encryption_and_privacy/encrypted_volumes]] instead of <span class="application">TrueCrypt</span>
-volumes.</p>
-
-</div>
-
-Still, you can open standard and hidden *TrueCrypt* volumes in Tails using the `cryptsetup`
-command line tool.
-
-<div class="note">
-
-<p>This technique might not work on volumes created with <em>TrueCrypt</em>
-version 4.1 to 4.3 (November 2005 to March 2007).</p>
-
-</div>
-
-1. [[Set up an administration
- password|first_steps/startup_options/administration_password]].
-
-1. Choose
- <span class="menuchoice">
- <span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
- <span class="guisubmenu">System Tools</span>&nbsp;▸
- <span class="guimenuitem">Root Terminal</span>
- </span>
- to open a terminal with administration rights.
-
-1. **If you want to open a standard *TrueCrypt* volume**, execute the
- following command. Replace `[volume]` with the path to your volume
- (partition or file container) and `[name]` with a name of your choice.
-
- cryptsetup open --type tcrypt [volume] [name]
-
- Here is an example of the command to execute to open a standard volume in a file container, yours is probably
- different:
-
- cryptsetup open --type tcrypt /media/amnesia/mydisk/mycontainer myvolume
-
- **Else, if you want to open a hidden *TrueCrypt* volume**, execute
- the following command. Replace `[volume]` with the path to your volume
- (partition or file container) and `[name]` with a name of your choice.
-
- cryptsetup --tcrypt-hidden open --type tcrypt [volume] [name]
-
- Here is an example of the command to execute to open a hidden volume on a partition, yours is probably
- different:
-
- cryptsetup --tcrypt-hidden open --type tcrypt /dev/sdc1 myhidden
-
-1. After typing your password and once the command prompt reappears, execute the following commands to mount
- the volume. Replace `[name]` with the name chosen in step&nbsp;3.
-
- mkdir /media/amnesia/[name]
-
- a. And, if your volume contains a **NTFS or FAT file system** (default):
-
- mount -o uid=1000 /dev/mapper/[name] /media/amnesia/[name]
-
- a. Else, if your volume contains an **Ext2, Ext3, or Ext4 file system**:
-
- mount /dev/mapper/[name] /media/amnesia/[name]
-
-1. If you don't see any error message, the volume is now available from the
- <span class="guimenu">Places</span> menu.
-
-1. When you want to close your *TrueCrypt* volume, execute
- the following commands to safely remove it.
- Otherwise some of your files could be lost or damaged.
- Replace `[name]`with the mapping name chosen in step&nbsp;3.
-
- umount /media/amnesia/[name]
- cryptsetup close [name]
