      Cryptkeeper's primary purpose was management of encrypted filesystems. This is not one of Seahorse's capabilities.

    2. Password-encryption of files and folders. The program is written in Java and therefore platform-independent and runs on nearly every system without installation, but requires a Java Runtime Environment - that is already installed in most cases.
    3. The Gnome Encfs Manager is an easy to use manager and mounter for encfs stashes. It allows you to create encrypted directories, any file that is placed in such a directory will be encrypted.
