Use Disk Utility to create disk images.
To encrypt the disk image, click the Encryption pop-up menu, then choose an encryption option.

When you format an internal or external volume, you can encrypt and protect the volume with a password. If you encrypt an internal disk, you must enter a password to access the disk and its information. If you encrypt an external device, you must enter the password when you connect the device to your computer.

To encrypt and protect the volume with a password using Disk Utility, you must erase the volume first. If the volume contains files you want to save, be sure to copy them to another volume.

Icon KeePassX 2.0.3

KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management. It has a light interface, is cross platform and published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database. KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.
The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe. This makes the use of that application even more favourable.

Icon Permanent Eraser 2.8.0

When you normally delete your files in Mac OS X, the operating system is only forgetting where those particular files are placed, while the data still physically remains on the drive. Beginning with Mac OS X 10.3, Apple enhanced its security by introducing the Secure Empty Trash feature, which follows the U.S. DoD pattern of overwriting data seven times.
Permanent Eraser provides additional wiping methods such as the 3-pass DoE or 35-pass Gutmann algorithms. This utility overwrites your data multiple times, scrambles the original file name, and truncates the file size to nothing before Permanent Eraser finally unlinks it from the system. Once your data has been erased, it can no longer be read through traditional means.

Can Permanent Eraser erase data from a flash-based drive (SSD, thumb drive, etc.)?
Due to the differences in how flash-based drives read and write data (versus traditional magnetic media hard drives), it is not recommended to use Permanent Eraser or any other traditional hard drive wiping method on flash-based drives. At this time, there does not seem to be a reliable method via software to erase data from flash-based drives. The best advice is to encrypt your drive, which can help provide some measure of protection for your data. However, if Permanent Eraser finds that a file is located on a SSD, the file will only be erased once to prevent unnecessary overwriting.

In 1998, Martin Roesch wrote an open source technology called Snort, which he termed a "lightweight" intrusion detection technology in comparison to commercially available systems. Today that moniker doesn't even begin to describe the capabilities that Snort brings to the table as the most widely deployed intrusion prevention technology worldwide. Over the years Snort has evolved into a mature, feature rich technology that has become the de facto standard in intrusion detection and prevention. Recent advances in both the rules language and detection capabilities offer the most flexible and accurate threat detection available, making Snort the "heavyweight" champion of intrusion prevention.

The Tor network is a group of volunteer-operated servers that allows people to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Tor's users employ this network by connecting through a series of virtual tunnels rather than making a direct connection, thus allowing both organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Along the same line, Tor is an effective censorship circumvention tool, allowing its users to reach otherwise blocked destinations or content. Tor can also be used as a building block for software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features.

Icon VyprVPN 2.17.2

Ensure Privacy and Security
Without a VPN, your IP address, location, browsing activity and online communications are at risk. A VPN app encrypts your Internet connection to secure it when using public Wi-Fi and other networks. Protect your online privacy from hackers, snoops and governmental surveillance whether you're browsing the Internet at home or on the go.

Bypass Censorship and Restrictions
VyprVPN allows you to change your IP address and appear local to any of our 70+ worldwide server locations. This is invaluable when travelling in countries that impose Internet censorship, as well as in schools or workplaces that impart restrictions. Buy a VPN to bypass blocked websites and content and maintain access to an unrestricted Internet.

Improve Streaming Access and Speed
When streaming content without a fast VPN, your ISP and streaming service can monitor your activity and throttle your Internet connection. When using a VPN, your provider sees only encrypted traffic and is unable to slow you down based on what you're doing. Bypass location-based blocks and access global media, as well as increase privacy while streaming.
