bitShifter has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
bitShifter Secure documents on your iPod with a super key. Just drag-and-drop your documents on bitShifters icon and bitShifter takes care of the rest. Distribute your super key from one Mac to another via .Mac.

Features:

3 layers of security

1. Password as a concept is so 20th century
- bitShifter uses 4096-bit RSA-key (super key) instead of (perhaps not so well chosen) passwords.

2. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
- bitShifter uses 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard to secure your files.

3. Steganography
- Secured files get saved at the same path and with the same name and suffix as the more...

What's New

Version 08Nov07:
  • DMG Assistant - Assists you in creating a sparse diskimage growable to n GB (secure the image by drag-and-drop on bitShifters icon).

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later, .Mac Account.

Leopard's Disk Utility will create AES-256 disk images.

Considering that AES-128 is regarded by the NSA as good for 'Secret' or lower data, is currently uncrackable, and AES-256 is much more than twice as hard to crack - well, this is probably sufficient for most people ;)

For this kind of cash, I DEMAND more information from a company. The website is pathetic and so is the screenshot.

The graybar that just hangs around on the desktop should be momentary.

It would be nice if it would go away after the process is complete.

Or allow it to accept drops I mean give it some kind of function other than a place holder for the process sheet..

Tried the demo, it does what it's supposed to do. If you need to password protect the encrypted files, try Kremlin, here on the MacUpdate. Kremlin has a multitude of features that may justify its higher $35 shareware price.

Testing v1.5 here on INTEL and seems buggy.

If I run the app and use the buttons (Unlock) and (Protect) the only files that I can alter without the app crashing is txt files.

However, if i use drag and drop (on the apps icon)
I can work with any file and folder that I choose.

This is very buggy now that I think about it.

Look forward to a better build.

Pretty good, but here's what I'd like to see:

The application will delete the original file.

Files will not have to be saved in .bitshifter format, but rather as themselves, only they will not be openable.

If you can manage these two, and maybe change that icon (sorry to say but it's not that good looking), this will be a sure fiver.

A neat program, but it would be nice if it had the option to replace the file you are protecting with the bitshifted copy - preferably with a multi-pass overwrite for real security.

I would like to see independent opinions of this program's security.

"Military grade encryption" is a meaningless term in the encryption community.
