CrococryptFile is a suite that includes the following: Password-based encryption (following PBKDF2) with AES-256, Windows Keystore based encryption using RSA keys and AES-256, and GPG/OpenPGP key based encryption with AES-256.
In many ways the encryption features of CrococryptFile could be compared to a ZIP utility, which uses ZIP’s AES encryption, but there are differences between the two. CrococryptFile, for instance, encrypts all file and folder information including file names, time/date and file size information, and it also disguises any information of the archive’s content, because all data and meta-data is simply integrated into a giant file dump.
Overall, CrococryptFile is a really useful tool that reliably allows you to encode important files and thereby renders them inaccessible to any other unauthorized users. The utility allows you to add individual files to a password-protected archive, which the encodes the file name, time/date, as well as the file size information. As the application integrates with the Windows Explorer context menu, you can also right-click on the desired file and start the encoding process.
