5 Encryption For Digital Security

What is Encryption ?

public-key-encryption

In cryptography, encryption is the process of encoding a message or information in such a way that only authorized parties can access it. Encryption does not of itself prevent interference, but denies the intelligible content to a would-be interceptor. In an encryption scheme, the intended information or message, referred to as plaintext, is encrypted using an encryption algorithm, generating ciphertext that can only be read if decrypted. For technical reasons, an encryption scheme usually uses a pseudo-random encryption key generated by an algorithm. It is in principle possible to decrypt the message without possessing the key, but, for a well-designed encryption scheme, considerable computational resources and skills are required. An authorized recipient can easily decrypt the message with the key provided by the originator to recipients but not to unauthorized users.


 

#1 Simple encryption 

Senditonthenet

competitors.png

Senditonthenet uses HTTPS to prevent your files from being intercepted during transport. Users must log in to download them.

Compare this with other services that email a link to your recipients. Anyone who can intercept that email (and thats potentially a lot of people) can also access that file. Some services even generate links that can be easily guessed or iterated through. This means somebody could in theory simply download everyone’s private files, one by one.

Senditonthenet runs entirely within the web browser. You will need an advanced web browser because of the cutting edge features that we use.

For your security we recommend that you Get Chrome – It’s free and is installed in minutes

How much does it cost?

SendItOnTheNet is absolutely free.

At some point in the future we may have to look at other options to keep the service funded, but we will consult with our users before doing anything and we promise we won’t suddenly take the service away or force anyone to pay.

 

#2 Cloud encryption

maxresdefault (1)

Boxcryptor encrypts your sensitive files and folders in Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and many other cloud storages. It combines the benefits of the most user friendly cloud storage services with the highest security standards worldwide. Encrypt your data right on your device before syncing it to the cloud providers of your choice.

Seamless for Your Workflow

Boxcryptor automatically detects your installed cloud storage providers and adds them to the virtual Boxcryptor drive. Every file you add to – or create within – the Boxcryptor drive can be easily encrypted. If you want to edit an encrypted file, just open it, make your changes and save it. That’s it. You do not need to do any extra work. Boxcryptor handles everything for you.

How to Use 7-Zip to Encrypt Files and Folders

7-Zip is an open source software used to compress or zip files secured with encryption.

When you send or transfer files that contain Personal Identifiable Information (PII) or other confidential and sensitive data, the files must be encrypted to ensure they are protected from unauthorized disclosure.

For Mac OS instructions, please visit: http://osxdaily.com/2012/01/07/set-zip-password-mac-os-x/

7-Zip, like WinZip, creates a container called archive that holds the files to be protected. That archive can be encrypted and protected with a password. 7-Zip is a free software that creates Zip files that can be opened with WinZip or other similar programs.

To obtain a copy of 7-Zip, please see http://www.7-zip.org/ and select the Download link.

Once the software is installed, please follow these steps to encrypt a file or folder.

Step 1: Right click on the file / folder to be encrypted.

Step 2: Select “7-Zip” then “Add to archive…”

7zip1a

Step 3: In the Add to Archive window change the name of the archive you wish to create.

7zip2a

Step 4: Change the Archive format to “Zip”.

7zip3a

Step 5: Change the Encryption Method to “AES-256”.

There is a trade-off between using AES-256 and ZipCrypto. AES-256 is proven much more secure than ZipCrypto, but if you select AES-256 the recipient of the zip file may have to install 7-zip or another zip program to read the file contents. Selecting ZipCrypto may allow users to open the zip file in Windows without a zip program, but it does not provide adequate protection against attackers with modern cracking tools.

It is strongly recommended to use AES-256 to protect sensitive and confidential data.

7zip5a

Step 6: Enter a Password. Use a strong password with at least 8 characters containing upper and lowercase letters, and a minimum of one number.

7zip5a

Step 7: Select “Ok” to create the encrypted archive file. The new archive file will be located in the same folder as the original.

Best security practices recommend that you do not email the password with the Zip file as it could be intercepted in transit. It is better to call the recipient of the Zip file and convey the password over the phone.

Don’t want others snooping on your email?

secureIconSource.png

SecureGmail encrypts and decrypts emails you send in Gmail. This happens all on your machine, and the unencrypted text never reaches Google servers. This is useful if you don’t want anyone but the intended recipient to ever read your email (i.e. companies, governments, etc.)

Open source

With any security project, community involvement is the key to helping identify flaws and verify the what the app is actually doing. We’ve posted the entire project on github here.

We’d love to make this better so pull requests are always welcome!

 

How secure is it?

lock

SecureGmail uses symmetric encryption to encrypt and decrypt each message. The password is decided by the user and assumes the recipient already knows it. SecureGmail is only as good as your password, pick an easy to guess password and it will be easy to break. Shared knowledge can be a useful and convenient password. Remember to never email or IM your password for others to intercept.

Works With Google Apps

SecureGmail is compatible with any of your Gmail accounts and you can use them across accounts simultaneously. SecureGmail works on personal Gmail accounts or accounts provided by your organization, school, or business.
