Two of the best combinations that we can find for security are the use of Kali Linux (which is a system developed to test the vulnerabilities of a system) and VeraCrypt which is software developed to encrypt both hard drives and external drives with the best security functions since VeraCrypt can use algorithms like:
Among all that VeraCrypt offers us we find:
- Ability to encrypt either a full partition or an external storage device like USB or hard drives.
- Allows the creation of encrypted volumes within active volumes.
- You can hide the units or the system itself
TechnoWikis will explain how to install VeraCrypt in Kali Linux and incidentally complete the most complete security kit that we can have as users. We also leave you the video tutorial with the necessary steps to install VeraCrypt in Kali Linux..

We click "OK" and we will proceed with the installation of VeraCrypt in Kali Linux:
VeraCrypt is now accessible from the Kali browser:
With this we are ready to use VeraCrypt to its full security potential:
It is a really simple process to install VeraCrypt in Kali Linux and know that we are installing a complete security utility to protect both the drives and our files.
