  • Hat.sh

    Free Mac Windows Web Website

    hat.sh is a javascript app that provides secure file encryption using the AES-256-GCM algorithm from WebCryptoAPI provided by your browser. it was coded following the WebCrypto Documentations .

    It's fast, secure and Serverless, the app never uploads the files to the server.

    in a small amount of code the app can encrypt any type of files at any size within seconds.

    To use the app all you have to do is Browse a file, Type a Decryption Key or Generate one through our secure key generator. and your encrypted file is ready to download.

  • GnuPG

    Free Mac Linux PortableApps.com Xfce OpenPGP Website

    GnuPG allows to encrypt and sign your data and communication, features a versatile key management system as well as access modules for all kinds of public key directories. GnuPG, also known as GPG, is a command line tool with features for easy integration with other applications. A wealth of frontend applications and libraries are available. Version 2 of GnuPG also provides support for S/MIME.

    Small GPG4Win iconGPG4Win provides a Windows version of GnuPG.

    Small GPGTools iconGPGTools provides a Mac OS X version of GnuPG.

  • gocryptfs

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    gocryptfs uses file-based encryption that is implemented as a mountable FUSE filesystem. Each file in gocryptfs is stored one corresponding encrypted file on the hard disk. The screenshot below shows a mounted gocryptfs filesystem (left) and the encrypted files (right).

  • CryFS

    Free Mac Linux Website

    CryFS encrypts your files, so you can safely store them anywhere. It works well together with cloud services like Dropbox, iCloud, OneDrive and others.

  • EncFS

    Free Mac Linux BSD Website

    EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. You can find links to source and binary releases below. EncFS is open source software, licensed under the GPL.

    As with most encrypted filesystems, Encfs is meant to provide security against off-line attacks; ie your notebook or backups fall into the wrong hands, etc. The way Encfs works is different from the “loopback” encrypted filesystem support built into the Linux kernel because it works on files at a time, not an entire block device. This is a big advantage in some ways, but does not come without a cost.

    See also the extended introduction page if you are new to EncFS.

    If you need help, please use the encfs-users mailing list. You can also send me encfs questions directly, but I may CC a response to the mailing list, to help other people who may have the same question.

    Slides from talk: In July 2005 I gave a presentation of EncFS at the Libre Software Meeting in France. Slides are available as PDF, or with last-minute changes in OpenOffice presentation format.

  • Cryptomator

    Freemium Mac Windows Linux Android iPhone ... Android Tablet iPad Website

    Cryptomator provides transparent, client-side encryption for your cloud. Protect your documents from unauthorized access. Cryptomator on the desktop is free and open source software, so you can rest assured there are no backdoors. Cryptomator for Android/iOS costs a small fee and is not open source, but it uses an open-core component that can be checked for backdoors.

    Easy and Reliable

    We understand simplicity as a key aspect of security. With Cryptomator you don't have to deal with accounts, key management, cloud access grants or cipher configurations. Just choose a password and you're ready to go.

    You don't even need to specify what cloud you use. Cryptomator encrypts files and doesn't care where you store them. This makes it a lightweight application, which we believe is a huge benefit for reliability. Complexity would kill security.

    Cryptomator is a so-called transparent encryption utility. This means that you don't have to learn new workflows. Just work with your files as you're used to.

    Secure and Trustworthy

    Cryptomator encrypts file contents and names using AES. Your passphrase is protected against bruteforcing attempts using scrypt. Directory structures and file sizes get obfuscated. The only thing which cannot be encrypted without breaking your cloud synchronization is the modification date of your files.

    Cryptomator's desktop app is a free and open source software licensed under the MIT / X Consortium License. This allows anyone to check our code. It is impossible to introduce backdoors for third parties. Also we cannot hide vulnerabilities. And the best thing is: There is no need to trust us, as you can control us!

    Vendor lock-ins are impossible. Even if we decided to stop development: The desktop source code is already cloned by hundreds of other developers. As you don't need an account, you will never stand in front of locked doors.

  • FinalCrypt

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    FinalCrypt uses the most unbreakable encryption: "One Time Pad" Encryption and has a well designed graphical user interface and an equally advanced command line interface for large automations.

    Reasons for choosing FinalCrypt:

    1. Most people choose Disk-Encryption as it's easier to unlock a whole drive, but Big-Brother or Malware can then also read all your files. Only use File-Encryption!
    2. Most software uses recently broken AES encryption: https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/3012648/aes-256-encryption-keys-cracked-by-hands-off-hack
    3. Soon The Shor's algorithm will instantly break all assymmetric encryption with Quantum Computers.
    4. FinalCrypt uses (Symmetric) One Time Pad Encryption, which is the most unbreakable encryption there is.
    5. FinalCrypt is the only "One Time Pad", OpenSource, Cross-Platform, (Bulk) File Encryption Software available.

  • LUKS

    Free Linux Website

    LUKS is the standard for Linux hard disk encryption. By providing a standard on-disk-format, it does not only facilitate compatibility among distributions, but also provides secure management of multiple user passwords. In contrast to existing solution, LUKS stores all setup necessary setup information in the partition header, enabling the user to transport or migrate his data seamlessly.

    LUKS was designed according to TKS1, a template design developed in TKS1 for secure key setup. LUKS closely reassembles the structure recommended in the TKS1 paper, but also adds meta data for cipher setup management and LUKS also supports for multiple keys/passphrases.

  • Tomb

    Free Linux Website

    Tomb is an 100% free and open source system for file encryption on GNU/Linux, facilitating the backup of secret files. Tomb is written in code that is easy to review and links commonly shared components.

  • VeraCrypt

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD PortableApps.com Website

    VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX and that is based on Small TrueCrypt iconTrueCrypt . It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks.

    For example, when the system partition is encrypted, TrueCrypt uses PBKDF2-RIPEMD160 with 1000 iterations whereas in VeraCrypt we use 327670. And for standard containers and other partitions, TrueCrypt uses at most 2000 iterations but VeraCrypt uses 655340 for RIPEMD160 and 500000 iterations for SHA-2 and Whirlpool.
