AES Crypt – Advanced Open Source File Encryption
AES Crypt is a file encryption software available on several operating systems that uses the industry standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to easily and securely encrypt files. You do not need to be an expert to use AES Crypt, nor do you need to understand cryptography. When using Windows, the only thing you need to do is right-click on a file, select AES Encrypt or AES Decrypt, enter a password, and AES Crypt will do the rest. On a Mac, you can drag a file to the AES Crypt program and provide the required password. On the command line, one can execute the “aescrypt” command with name of the file and password to use to encrypt or decrypt. For PHP, Java, and C# developers, there are libraries available that can read and write AES-encrypted files from within your application. For Python enthusiasts, there is a command-line utility with source code that can be used to integrate AES Crypt functionality into your own Python applications. Using a powerful 256-bit encryption algorithm, AES Crypt can safely secure your most sensitive files. Once a file is encrypted, you do not have to worry about a person reading your sensitive information, as an encrypted file is completely useless without the password. It simply cannot be read. AES Crypt is the perfect tool for anyone who carries sensitive information with them while traveling, uploads sensitive files to servers on the Internet, or wishes to protect sensitive information from being stolen from the home or office. AES Crypt is also the perfect solution for those who wish to backup information and store that data at a bank, in a cloud-based storage service, and any place where sensitive files might be accessible by someone else. Best of all, AES Crypt is completely free open source software. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
