Shufflecake (ACM CCS 2023, DEF CON Demo Labs 2023) is a tool
for Linux that allows to create multiple hidden volumes on a storage
device in such a way that it is very difficult, even under forensic
inspection, to prove the existence of such volumes. This is useful for
people whose freedom of expression is threatened through coercion by
repressive authorities or dangerous criminal organizations, in
particular: whistleblowers, investigative journalists, and activists for
human rights in oppressive regimes. You can consider Shufflecake a
"spiritual successor" of tools such as TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt, but
vastly improved: it works natively on Linux, it supports any filesystem
of choice, and can manage multiple nested volumes per device, so to make
deniability of the existence of these partitions really plausible.
Shufflecake is FLOSS (Free/Libre, Open Source Software) released under
the GNU General Public License v2.0 or superior.
