    Default mounting encrypted image

    How about adding support for mounting an encrypted image? Keeping data on encrypted images is a really nice feature, and being able to mount them with d-tools would be equally great. Personally, I use linux for making the images, an example of a DVD image given here;

    # dd if=/dev/urandom of=image bs=1000000 count=4699
    # losetup -e aes /dev/loop0 image
    # mkudffs --udfrev=0x0150 --lvid=dvd --vid=dvd --media-type=hd /dev/loop0
    # mount -t udf /dev/loop0 /mnt/image

    If I don't specify "-e aes" to losetup, the resulting image is unencrypted and already mountable by d-tools. Which is why I dare hope that adding a "decryption" loop in d-tools is possible... maybe even not too much work...

    Ofcourse, I can (and do) mount and use these images on linux, but the ability to read them on windows as well would make this a somewhat more portable operation.

    I have no idea if losetup's method of doing this (ie image structure) follows any standard(s) that might exist.

    encryption is planned for the DT V4 version

    Something similar that what CrossCrypt does would be great. The possibility to create and mount encrypted (AES, Blowfish,...) images would make DT the definitive tool.
