Tomb is a system to make strong encryption easy for everyday use. A tomb is like a locked folder that can be safely transported and hidden in a filesystem. Its keys can be kept separate; for example, you can keep the tomb on your computer and its key on a USB stick. Tomb is written in code that is easy to review and links shared components: it consists of a shell script and desktop integration apps; it uses standard GNU tools and the cryptographic API of the Linux kernel (dm-crypt) via cryptsetup.

Release Notes: This release includes an important fix to correctly parse spaces in passwords. It also introduces a new 'passwd' command to change a key's password, checks on swap usage, and has updated documentation and better desktop integration.
Release Notes: This release fixes desktop integration issues with various file managers, activating MIME types triggers and icons for tombs. The CLI provides a new 'list' command that gives an overview on all tombs open, customization of mount options (opening a tomb read-only is now supported), and fancy colored messages.
Release Notes: This release fixes several bugs and usability issues. Tomb now works both in graphical and non-graphical environments, implements 'bind-hooks' that mount automatically internal directories under a user's home, adopts pinentry for secure authentication, and offers the ability to 'slam' a tomb, killing all processes that keep it busy. This release comes with detailed manual documentation. Packages are provided for Debian, Ubuntu, and Arch distributions.
Release Notes: The tomb-open wizard now correctly guides you through the creation of new tombs and helps when saving the keys on external USB storage devices. The status tray now reliably closes its tomb.
Release Notes: Tomb is now a desktop application following freedesktop.org standards: it provides a status tray and integrates with file managers. This release also fixes some bugs and provides a manual page.
