State of the art cryptographic tools
====================================
Tails also comes with a selection of tools to protect your data using strong
encryption:
- Encrypt your USB sticks or external hard-disks using <span
class="definition">[[!wikipedia LUKS]]</span>, the Linux standard for
disk-encryption.
- Automatically encrypt with HTTPS all your communications to a number of
major websites using [HTTPS
Everywhere](https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere), a Firefox extension
developped by the [Electronic Frontier Foundation](https://www.eff.org).
- Encrypt and sign your emails and documents, using the *de facto* standard
<span class="definition">[[!wikipedia OpenPGP]]</span> either from Tails
browser with FireGPG, or Tails email client or file browser.
- Protect your instant messaging conversations using <span
class="definition">[[!wikipedia Off-the-Record_Messaging
desc="OTR"]]</span>, a cryptographic tool that provides encryption,
authentication and deniability.
