How to install VeraCrypt on Kali Linux

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:

 

Veracrypt algorithms

 

  • AES
  • Camellia
  • Kuznyechik
  • Serpent
  • Twofish
  • AES-Twofish
  • AES-Twofish-Serpent
  • Camellia-Kuznyechik
  • Camellia-Serpent
  • Kuznyechik-AES
  • Kuznyechik-Serpent-Camellia
  • Kuznyechik-Twofish
  • Serpent-AES

 

 

Veracrypt Features
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.
  • Free program.
  • 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..

Step 2

This file must be downloaded locally. Now we access the terminal and with the command "cd" we go to Downloads and extract the content of the downloaded file with the following syntax:
  tar   xvf  "  file   .tar   .baz2  "

Step 3

These are the components for the operation of VeraCrypt, to install it we will execute the following from the terminal:
 ./veracrypt-1.24-Update4-setup-gui-x64 
Note
32-bit architecture installer is available if needed (veracrypt-1.24-Update4-setup-gui-x86)

 

Step 4

When pressing Enter, the following window will be launched where we must click on the “Install VeraCrypt” button:
