PSA TrueCrypt Audit project

What an interesting day!

Started with comments about Bruce Schneier's article at Wired where he mentions some concerns about TrueCrypt:
No, I don’t have any inside knowledge about TrueCrypt, and there’s a lot about it that makes me suspicious. But for Windows full-disk encryption it’s that, Microsoft’s BitLocker, or Symantec’s PGPDisk — and I am more worried about large U.S. corporations being pressured by the NSA than I am about TrueCrypt.

Eventually Matthew Green made the following tweet:
. and I are working on a 'Kickstarter' for a proper review of Truecrypt. The terms are a work in progress.

You can follow Kenn White & Matthew Green on Twitter:

I am still very much a noob when it comes to Crypto, but Matthew Green is one of the people I follow to learn.

If your not into Crypto you probably haven't heard of him, this Ars article would be one place to start

I am sorry to say I don't know much about Kenn White currently, I'd welcome comments or links that correct my ignorance.
