Amazon AWS continues to use TrueCrypt despite project's demise

The first paragraph of the story "Amazon AWS continues to use TrueCrypt despite project's demise," posted Friday, mischaracterized the limitations on the options for encrypting data imported to or exported from the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). It is the AWS Import/Export tool that only supports TrueCrypt as a means of encryption.

The story has been corrected on the wire and the first paragraph now reads:

TrueCrypt remains the only way to encrypt Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) data when using the AWS Import/Export tool, two weeks after the popular encryption software was abruptly discontinued by its creators, supposedly for security reasons.
