Krypton is a privacy tool that uses strong encryption (256-bit AES, CBC, HMAC-SHA256) to securely protect personal and confidential information resident on your computer. Krypton is not a password manager: it encrypts and decrypts entire documents (text, spreadsheets, images, recipes, emails, anything).

Krypton terminology:
  • Plaintext refers to any item, whether a text file, image, Word or Pages document, spreadsheet, HTML or sound file, etc., in its normal format.
  • Ciphertext refers to a plaintext item that has been encrypted, and is thus

Krypton is a privacy tool that uses strong encryption (256-bit AES, CBC, HMAC-SHA256) to securely protect personal and confidential information resident on your computer. Krypton is not a password manager: it encrypts and decrypts entire documents (text, spreadsheets, images, recipes, emails, anything).

Krypton terminology:
  • Plaintext refers to any item, whether a text file, image, Word or Pages document, spreadsheet, HTML or sound file, etc., in its normal format.
  • Ciphertext refers to a plaintext item that has been encrypted, and is thus unrecognizable.
  • A passcode is a string of words and characters used as a key during encryption and decryption. The only way to decrypt a Krypton item is by knowing the passcode used to encrypt it.
Features:
  • Encrypt plaintext and decrypt ciphertext items.
  • Import plaintext and ciphertext items.
  • Export ciphertext items.
  • Delete ciphertext items.
Krypton keeps your ciphertext items in a special vault. When the App runs the vault opens automatically and all your ciphertext items are displayed.

To encrypt a file or folder and add it to the vault simply use the File menu's Add To Vault menu item to select the item to encrypt. After that the passcode sheet slides down so that you can enter and verify your passcode, and optionally shred the original item.

To decrypt a vault item, double-click it, and specify where to save the plaintext. After that the passcode sheet slides so that you can enter the decryption passcode.
