With TrueCrypt users advised to stop using the software, is there similar software that:

  • supports virtual disk mounting from encrypted files
  • offers plausible deniability via hidden volumes
  • has been proven reliable enough for real-world use

A related question discusses alternatives for whole-disk encryption but I need a solution for the multiple encrypted archives that are currently in use on my work systems, external hard-drives and flash drives.

I'm personally looking for Windows alternatives but Linux or multi-platform software might be useful for other users.

  • possible duplicate of Alternatives to TrueCrypt?

    @mirabilos OP already mentioned that question and describes why it's not a duplicate: The linked one asks about options for whole disk encryption, while this one here asks for "containers" or multiple encrypted archives, as the OP states. I wouldn't count that a "duplicate", just a "relative" :)
