QuickCrypto Encryption Software

File Encryption

QuickCrypto is a 'twelve-in-one' security software tool ....


File Encryption.

File Encryption Software Feature

  File Encryption

All types of file can be encrypted, a document (pdf, doc, txt etc.), an image (bmp, jpg, gif etc.), an application (exe, dll etc.) - any type of windows file! Encrypted files are unreadable or usable by anyone until they are decrypted again - documents are meaningless, images can't be viewed, applications won't execute.

File Encryption Software Feature

  File Decryption

As in the case for encrypted text messages, decryption can only happen if the 'key' (the Pass Phrase) is known (or the key file is present). Once decrypted, the files or text will revert to their original state and can be used as if they had not been encrypted at all. You may choose to also hide encrypted files with QuickCrypto.

  How Does It Work?

The encryption algorithms used by QuickCrypto are advanced, current and security industry proven (with QuickCrypto you have a choice from Blowfish, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or the Triple Data Encryption Standard, T-DES).

File Encryption Software Feature

  Are Files Securely Encrypted?

These encryption techniques have been open to all security experts to examine for many years (peer review). With all of these approaches you achieve extremely secure encryption of files (assuming you use complex, long passwords).

File Encryption Software Feature

  Test Vectors

QuickCrypto is one of the very few encryption packages that allows direct access to its encryption algorithms to enable provenance of encryption methods through the confirmation of security/cryptographic 'Test Vectors'.

  Professional Encryption

Of course there is more to providing a sound encryption system than just making sure the 'formulas' are coded correctly. Please see the Cryptographic Standards section below for much more on how QuickCrypto adheres to other professional cryptography standards.

  Cryptographic 'Snake Oil'

Not all cryptography software is developed using robust and peer reviewed standards, even though the same common algorithm terms will often be included within the sales pitch (DES, AES etc.).

It is how these algorithms (and all the required supporting cryptographic functions) have been implemented that counts as much as the concept used.

There's no point in having an alarmed steel door with twenty different locks on your house, if you leave all the huge windows open.

There can be many short cuts taken in the development of the software that will make it appear that sound encryption has taken place, when in actual fact, it would be 'relatively' easy to break the encryption operation.

Don't be fooled into using or buying encryption 'snake oil.' Use professional grade encryption implemented in software by experts!

  Cryptographic Standards

Quick Crypto has been developed to adhere to the following Cryptography Standards:

PBKDF2 (Password-Based Key Derivation Function).
PBKDF2 is part of RSA Laboratories' Public Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS), specifically PKCS #5 v2.0 (published as the IETF's RFC2898). PBKDF2 (key strengthening) makes password cracking extremely difficult.

Cypher Block Chaining
The block cipher confidentiality modes comply with Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation (SP80038A).

Initialisation Vectors
Cypher Block Chaining (CBC) mode includes a data block called the initialisation vector (IV). The IV for any particular execution of the encryption process must be and is (in QuickCrypto) unpredictable.

QuickCrypto follows the convention from section 6.3 of RFC 3852 (formerly RFC 3369 and RFC 2630), PKCS #5 and PKCS #7.

Random Number Generation
The random number generator conforms to the NIST Special Publication 800-90 Recommendation for Random Number Generation Using Deterministic Random Bit Generators (SP80090) first published June 2006.

  Why Use Encryption?

A company is obliged to keep its Customer data secure - both from an ethical and a regulatory point of view. Huge fines have been levied by regulatory bodies on companies who have failed to keep their data secure. Encrypting data keeps data secure.

Within the home environment, it is prudent to encrypt confidential data to keep it out of the hands of the bad guys. This improves your chances of keeping your private life, private and keeping financial information safe.

  Is QuickCrypto Easy To Use?

Yes! One of the fundamental reasons why Encryption is not used as much as it could be, is that people find it difficult to use software that easily achieves secure data.

QuickCrypto has been designed first and foremost (notwithstanding a pure 'heart' of sound cryptographiocal ability) to be supremely easy to use.

How Do I Encrypt/Decrypt Files?

File Encryption Software Feature

  From QuickCrypto Console:

(1) Press 'Encrypt File' button,
(2) Select the File to be Encrypted,
(3) Enter a 'Pass Phrase' to lock the File (or click default password button)

The File is then Encrypted! 

File Encryption Software Feature

  Using the CryptoExplorer:

(1) Select CryptoExplorer from QuickCrypto,
(2) Then select the file, files or folders (including subfolders if you want) and select 'Encrypt',
(3) Enter a 'Pass Phrase' to lock the File (or click default password button)

The File(s), Files in Folders are then Encrypted!

File Encryption Software Feature

  Using Windows Explorer:

(1) Select the file you want to encrypt,
(2) 'Right-Click' then select 'Encrypt' (or 'Send To' then 'Encrypt File' for more than one file),
(3) Enter a 'Pass Phrase' to lock the File(s) or Folder contents (or click default password button)

The File is then Encrypted!

File Encryption Software Feature

  Drag and Drop on the Desktop:

(1) Create a desktop shortcut for the file (or folder) you wish to encrypt,
(2) Select and 'drag' the shortcut item and 'drop' onto the QuickCrypto desktop shortcut,
(3) Enter a 'Pass Phrase' to lock the File (or click default password button)

The File (or folder content) is then Encrypted!
