'''univention-ucc-truecrypt''' allows to mount encrypted truecrypt container on removable storage devices (USB) on UCC clients. If USB sticks with truecrypt container (standard name is secure.tct) are connected to the UCC client, a graphical password dialog will prompt for the password and the truecrypt container is mounted (on the standard mountpoint for removable storage devices).
There is a version of this article for [http://wiki.univention.com/index.php?title=Cool_Solution_-_Encrypted_USB_sticks_for_UCC_clients&oldid=12454 UCC 1.0].
= Installation =
On the UCC client, the package '''univention-ucc-truecrypt''' has to be installed.
apt-get install univention-ucc-truecrypt
= Configuration of USB storage devices =
The following command can be used to create a 1GB truecrypt container with the password "univention", the name "secure.tct" and the filesystem FAT.
-> truecrypt -t -c secure.tct \
    --volume-type=normal \
    --encryption=AES \
    --hash=RIPEMD-160 \
    -p univention \
    -k "" \
    --random-source=/dev/urandom \
= UCR configuration =
The behavior when mounting truecrypt containers can be configured through the following UCR variables on the UCC client:
* ''ucc/usb/truecrypt/mount/options'' Mount options for the truecrypt device. (default: umask=0000)
* ''ucc/usb/truecrypt/only'' If true, mount only devices with a truecrypt container. (default: false)
* ''ucc/usb/truecrypt/container'' Name of the truecrypt container. (default: secure.tct)
* ''ucc/usb/truecrypt/sessions'' Comma-separated list of xsessions where truecrypt devices are mounted.
= Technical background  =
= Known issues =
* At the moment, the integration of truecrypt devices is only supported in the XenApp Xsession (can be configured via ''ucc/usb/truecrypt/sessions'').
* If FAT is used as filesystem, the truecrypt container can have a size of maximum 4GB
