Its ability to encode whole resource forks of Mac files into a single data fork, makes it possible to transfer the encrypted files from, through and to Windows systems, without them getting corrupted.

Yup. URL is dead due to non-existent address/server. Sounded cool though.

That's ok, RC4 is no longer 'highly secure.'

Excellent. Simply excellent. Works fast and..well...WORKS!! the "read me" doesn't hold your hand, but if you can't figure it out, you shouldn't be allowed near a computer. Should be integrated as a default feature in OSX.

Thanks Russell for your input, but I still can't get it to download-keep getting the same message as before with both browsers.
I'm running Safari 1.2.4 & IE 5.2.3 on a G4 tower (dual 1.42 processors, 2GB SDRAM, 120GB HD) with OS X 10.3.7.
No worries-I'll try back again, and I don't want my troubles marring the reviews or perceptions of Krypt-I'm just hoping that perhaps someone may have an idea of what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks.

I downloaded the software just fine using Sarfari (I'm running a 533MHz DA G4 Mac with O/S-10.3.6). But because I'm spending today backing up my hard drive I haven't had the time to checkout Krypt to see how well it works. Hope it works really good!!!

Works like a charm. Don't know how secure as I don't know of any way to test it. Quickly encrypts and decrypts files. And the price is very sweet!!

To the person who didn't know of a way to see how well Krypt works:

Open up a plain text editor (SubEthaEdit, for example, not TextEdit) and type some words. Encrypt it with Krypt. Open the encrypted file up in the plain text editor. This is what the encrypted text now looks like.

I think what the person meant was How secure, not whether or not it encrypts the file. It says it uses RC4, which is all right -- not the best out there -- but good enough for most civilians. However, a critical point would be how many bits per key? Also, I do not like that it only accepts a 16 character pass phrase. The quality of the pass phrase, unlike ordinary passwords, means a lot. I want to be able to insert 256 passphrases.

I would love to give Krypt 1.0 a try, however, after trying to download it via both Internet Explorer & Safari ("Safari can't open the page “http://www.digitalcalamity.org/applications/krypt/Krypt.sit” because it can't find the server “www.digitalcalamity.org”.") several times, I'll have to give up for now.
