I'm still missing my favourite alternative in the suggestions.

device-mapper's dm-crypt target together with LUKS (Linux Unified Key
Setup). dm-crypt is somewhat the successor to encrypted loopback
mentioned by Rob, and fixes some of the issues perceived in encrypted
loopback. Some of those where subsequently also fixed in encrypted
loopback itself, to make things more clear for everyone ;P.

In Debian, the package cryptsetup provides all the goodness.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
