I am pushing for using TrueCrypt in a specific way on company laptops, which involves prompting users to mount a volume directly after Windows logon. The stock TrueCrypt UI is perfectly functional, but not as fast and friendly as you might expect an app that you use each day.
What I am looking for is a replacement app that allows users to use keyboard and mouse to enter the required password and keyfile as fast as possible.The solution I recommend
is a small popup GUI window with a password box and a tree structure below it that allows clicking to browse to a key file. The back end will simply run the truecrypt.exe command with parameters as it already exists.The design I would like
one that looks similar to Quicksilver with a box type and big icons to click to browse for key files. I can help with mockups and bitmaps that will go in the completed UI.The logic behind key file selection
would be to use what TrueCrypt already choose, with the "Windows Places Bar" being the default 4 items to click in the normal Windows file selection dialog. This should pull from the registry to populate the items. When an item is clicked, it is replaced with 4+ of its child items, with keyboard navigation acceleration enabled, press "k" to jump to the first 4+ "k" items. Scroll is mouse wheel accelerated or mouseover accelerated.The physical idea of input
is as follows: 1. Two hand text entry password 2. Right hand mouse and left hand text nav and submit. Pure keyboard only key selection is of course optional, but not part of my interests.Ransom
, I'm not up to speed on how you guys complete requests, but I'm cool with paying.
Here is what I want to never have to click on again
