Although some of the users posting here have evaluated this security solution alongside PGP/GPG, it should be noted that simplicity in security is critical. Even among some of the most paranoid, security conscious people I know, NOBODY uses PGP for some reason.
PGP serves a very different purpose than fSekrit, though, and it's still worthwhile for those reasons. I store my passwords and other stuff in fSekrit documents, but if I were to receive encrypted email I'd prefer something pubkey encrypted... and if I need to sign data, that would also be with something pubkey based. It'd probably be GPG rather than PGP though
1. Any way to perhaps rename or change a fSekrit file so it will transfer across email services that block sending executables? Maybe a zip file inside a zip file or something similar?
Not something I would implement in fSekrit, as it's a pretty specialized usecase. Also, trying to subvert such scanners would likely get fSekrit blacklisted
. I have plans to support loading/saving ".fSekrit" files instead of only dealing with the .exe containers. Would that work for you?
2. You mentioned over on portablefreeware.com awhile back that you'd open the source code http://www.portablef...dex.php?id=784#14386 ... any chance that's going to happen?
Yeah, it is - I know I've been very very slow in making good on the promise though. My girlfriend got me hooked on world of warcrack at xmas... need I say more?
I know this is an old project so if you'd like it to mothball, I certainly understand. Thanks for your work on it so far.
I still use it daily, so I don't feel like abandoning it. I was working on some substantial rewrites, though, and got stuck on some boring-to-write code - that, combined with a zillion real-life things (and warcrack >_<) sucking up time unfortunately pushed fSekrit to a fairly low position on the priority list.
I'm hoping to change that soon, though. Being done with the education system and having found a job means more spare time
