How to share an encrypted USB drive on Windows, Mac and Linux in a secure way?
I got a 2TB hard drive that I have to use with both Windows 10 and macOS 10.12 Sierra, maybe even on Linux in future. I need to encrypt this 2TB hard drive so that I can share the encrypted files on macOS 10.12 Sierra. Now I use Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption. On Mac and Linux nothing, obviously. What do you recommend?
