SecureFolders... There are lots of tools available for backup management, but few take care of data encipherment; this is becoming more important as the trend is to store everything in "the cloud", remote servers that can be accessed by administrators, hardware owners, intruders iconand government agencies.

For many years, encryption tools have been widely available in operating systems. One of them is OpenSSL, open sourced and widely available in different platforms; it provides many strong encryption options. The commercial application RAR is versatile and also built for several platforms. Altogether they can generate segmented archives highly protected that will enable us reliable storage in external facilities, with the added capability of managing the archives with widespread, almost-standard, tools. In order to synchronize files with the storage device, SecureFolders is front-end also to RSync, another widespread usage utility that keeps twin folders up to date.

SecureFolders is a "front-end", a user interface that controls the command line applications rar, openssl and rsync. Therefore, any user could open (knowing the password) the encrypted files without dependency on a single application. This fact is to the advantage of the user, because won't get trapped by a tool that ceases maintenance, or uses a unusual format, or, simply, must use the files in another machine without this front-end.

Some of its features:
  • Encrypted backup, extraction and synchronization
  • Profile-based management for different scenarios.
  • Supports password, OSX keychain and secure certificates (PKI).
  • It keeps the last modification date in archives for better updates detection
  • External executable management
  • File segmentation for better big file uploading
  • Several strong encryption algorithms
  • Archives are base64-encoded before re-compression
  • Multicore architecture: launches so many compression processes as cores has the machine
  • Automatic updates
  • Automatic installer package
  • No application lock-in
