27 December 2010

AES 256-bit encryption.

Overview

With iCrypt you will be able to crypt your data using an AES algorithm with 256-bit encryption. Just drag and drop files or folders on iCrypt to encrypt or decrypt them. Use on Mac OS X is really easy, moreover self-decrypting files allow you to exchange your data even if your recipient has not installed iCrypt. UNIX compatibility is also provided by the use of ccrypt. This encrypting method is really strong and secure so could be illegal in some countries. Use it in accordance with your local laws.

Main features:

  • Allows encrypting of files and folders
  • Folders are compressed via the 'tar' command automagically before being encrypted for space saving and maximum security
  • Various settings are available (and Preferences-settable) like removing the source file after encrypting
  • You can make self-decrypting files with just one click, which you can share with any Mac OS X user and he will be able to open it without the iCrypt application itself
  • The files created do not have a resource fork, so you can happily share the files via the Internet without any loss of data
  • Strong encryption using a well-known algorithm (256 bits)
  • By the way, the demo version is fully functional
  • French localisation

Attempting to visit the listed "Visit Developer's Site" link just at the moment (2010-12-28 06:56 EST) yields "Page introuvable" (aka page not found).

MACUPDATE: this site no longer exists. It was taken down because the Developer was violating the GPL of the underlying encryption technology. Please remove this entry in its entirety.

Has iCrypt been abandoned by its developer? Both the 'download now' and 'visit developer's site' button lead to a "page not found". Even Google seems not able to find the developer.

I need two small clarifications: first, is this application related to the other app by the same name, produced by djodjodesign? I realize that I had installed that app last year, believing it was a new release of iCrypt by Julien Couthouis, but apparently it was not. Other clarification needed: as I install iCrypt version 1.2, I see in the Finder that the date of the application is 2005. Somewhat strange for a new release of the app in 2009. Or did I miss something here?

This program encrypts files only (not Folders). And while I found a way around that, I just about purchase this program except at the last minute I didn't. Why? The website for the credit card page is unsecure (it was not a "//https" webpage). Hello, this is not very cool for a person trying to sell you a security program. DUH!

"Just" a front end to a command (ccrypt) but very well done and easy to use; easily worth £5.62 in strong money, especially given that - for example - WinZip asks $29 for essentially the same functionality, including AES-256 encryption, and Stuffit even more! If you are interested only in file encryption, not encryption and/or signing of email, iCrypt is just right; PGP and GnuPG are far too complicated for that task. I back files and folders up to my own ftp server and a single drag-and-drop strongly encrypts them before upload. iCrypt is robust and can easily cope with several-hundred-megabyte Entourage mailboxes, for example. Only two minor glitches; the keyboard tab order between fields is wrong (it should be Passphrase, then Confirm, then the two checkboxes) and, in my opinion, the delay before the program starts if you haven't registered (30 seconds) is too long.

This is an awesome app. The best feature is the ability to make a stand alone self extracting archive of your data, so the recieving party need not have the app. As an aside, 8 euros is a steep, perhaps not for Europeans, but for us poor Americans with our worthless Monopoly money, that is like $15.

Warning -- don't rename files or it won't decrypt, it says. You can rename it, but not the file extensions. Then it says [renamed] successfully decrypted, even if it is not named [renamed]. Warning -- opens asking for something to encrypt with the option to delete original ticked. Not good for a startup default. Select Preferences first and untick the relevant boxes then set it to open with the default window. If your extension becomes tar.cpt.1 -- as in a duplicate -- the app doesn't realize the file is its encrypted offspring. Tab won't send you to the other Confirm [Password] field but to the buttons. Hit Tab again. Not a major problem but this isn't freeware. Needs a button besides [Cancel] and [OK] to clear dragged item without making the window disappear. I don't think this supports multiple dragged items. It should, naming it archive.tar.cpt or something by default. It doesn't ... but it'll handle multiple items in a folder. (At least it asks when you are decrypting a file that already exists uncrypted.) Cancel makes the window disappear into the ether but not forget the dragged item. Click on the docked icon to call it up again -- a bit too weird for me. Nag delay is 75 seconds for unregistered versions -- 30 seconds would've been better -- but the app is otherwise fully usable. JC, if you want to get money for shareware, don't irritate users. Those that can't pay, won't pay ... until they can, assuming they are still using the app and find it essential. Better be patient and have a non-paying user than a non-user IMHO. Is it worth 8 Euros? Maybe 10+ Euros once it's polished up, properly preferenced by default, has a history of updates, handles multiple drags, and is better documented; but not the way it stands now. So, how about it JC?

Demo nag screen lasts almost 2 full minutes. I think I'll take that time to write a negative review.

I have just tested it - it is an excellent application, very easy to use, and it also erases securely the document which you had created before encrypting if you ask it to do it. If it really creates completely secure files as it claims to (and I have no reason to doubt it does, but I am not a technical guy!), then it is a remarkable and useful tool, meeting all my needs for encrypting files. Plus support is fast and responsive: I asked three questions and got a precise and clear reply within two hours.

The ccrypt app is opensource. I think it is a shame to write a GUI for an opensource app, and to ask money for it. OK, it is just 8 euro, but again, ccrypt is opensource. The other point is, we cannot see the into the GUI source. Maybe there is a backdoor, maybe not.
