Sub_title: made new gui for bcrypt and ccrypt
 

Hello

Made a "new" gui for bcrypt and ccrypt this afternoon, first made by coolpup. Don't know if someone is interested in and need some feedback.
I'll post two pictures of it and later the progs.
Questions:
- should I put bcrypt and ccrypt into it?
- made changes to the mime types to detect encryptet files, also include?
- at the moment german and english in one file -> only english?
- zip directoriy with xarchive, better commandline? (with xarchive you can make changes and it's better to handle)
- two progs at the moment, make it into one?

thanks for your answers

take care


Edit: must be named directory and not directorie Embarassed

Hello

Questions:
Quote:
should I put bcrypt and ccrypt into it?

we have only one encryption, so just bcrypt would be fine Smile

Quote:
- made changes to the mime types to detect encrypted files, also include

I think the answer is yes - if clicking on an encrypted file should bring up your program


Quote:
- at the moment german and english in one file -> only english?

Only English please

Quote:
- zip directory with xarchive, better commandline? (with xarchive you can make changes and it's better to handle)


the ability to archive directory is an important innovation
I would maybe offer just encryption to start with
or offer
    encrypt
    encrypt and compress (xarchive)



Quote:

if possible - one program is better

Hope that helps Smile

Hello

Thanks Lobster for your answers. Made a new one and hope it'll be good.

It's a simple frontend for bcyrpt, which is NOT into this package.

1. Choose between file or directory encryption.
2. Choose dir/file
3. If directory => choose if you want to zip it into one file
4. That's it

You can only encrypt directories without subdirectories. No option for more in bcrypt.
Files (*.bfe) are not automatically detected, you have to edit your globs file for mime detection. You can decrypt .bfe files by right clicking and OpenWith/Pdecrypt.

Please test the file and give me a feedback, so I can make a final one.

With ccrypt you can encrypt directories with the -r option. Why not take this one?

Excellent Smile
Have modified the top part of the help file with any mistakes I saw

Quote:
Pcrypt is a simple graphical user interface to bcrypt.

1. Select file or directory
2. Choose file/dir to en-/decrypt by typing, dragging or choosing
3. Click OK

Encryption of directories only works with a simple directory
WITHOUT sub directories!

To add auto-detection of .bfe files (bcrypt) open
/usr/share/mime/globs with a text editor, add "application/bcrypt:*.bfe" to
the last line and save.

Input files will be overwritten four times before deleting.

Made without warranties. Use at your own risk.


Worked as expected
I would get rid of the (OK it is funny)
line about deleting and forgetting your password
on the program as it is confusing

Thank you lobster, you are my english teacher Laughing
I didn't know how bad my english is. I am a little ashamed Embarassed

I'll make the changes in the help file and post it.

This is my first gui and I'm learning how to deal with the gtk-dialog.

Thank you for helping
Take care

PS: What do you think about ccrypt? Linux/windows/mac, subdirectories, secure deleting, 41kb.

Your English is very good
Good job on your first gui Smile

Your program is running in Puppy 5 Lucid incidentally Smile

Be aware of this thread and maybe send a private message to 'jamesBond'
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=422856#422856

Yes I would go ahead with a ccrypt GUI pet
You might like to incorporate it into my GROWL program (and release version 2)

PostPosted: Tue 01 Jun 2010, 12:58    Post_subject: Pcrypt-1.0  

Thanks Lobster for helping!

So here's the new Pcrypt-1.0

It's a simple graphical user interface to bcrypt.
You can en-/decrypt any file or directorie (without sub directories) by typing, dragging or choosing. It can compress your directorie after encryption.
Encrypted files will be saved with the extension *.bfe. If you add a line to your mime globs, files will automatically detected and opened with a terminal window for encryption or you can open them via right click and send to Pdecrypt.

It it is made to be simple, so that everyone can use it.
Here you can find the windows version of bcrypt: http://bcrypt.sourceforge.net/

Hope it's usefull
thanks for testing and using

Take care

Blowfish is no longer recommended by its creator:
"At this point, though, I'm amazed it's still being used. If people ask, I recommend Twofish instead." (Schneier, 1997)

Yes I know, but for normal encryption it's doing a good job. It's not my intention to use military encryption. It's just made to make it a little difficult to read/open files that are not for everyone. Blowfish is still not broken.
If I want to make it reallly secure you can use Truecrypt or even LUKS with cryptsetup. I mentioned ccrypt bevore. With twofish you haven't got an extension like .bfe. So you'll have to remember your encrypted files.

But you're right! Ccrypt is the better solution and I'll make the same gui for it!

Edit II: updated to version 1.1
(thanks Sit Heel Speak)

soliver,

jamesbond has done some good work on encrypting directories.

See here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=423141&search_id=1969722926#423141

I have made a single pet package of his work here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=423516&search_id=1969722926#423516

This will allow you to encrypt sub directories.

Very simple to use although about 500k.

Nicht "alogarithm" sondern "algorithm" in deutschesprach so wie englischesprach...

Nicht "sub directories" sondern "subdirectories"...

"Hilfe" = "Help"
"Abbrechen" = "Cancel"

Sonst, sehr gut...

Sub_title: ccrypt + wipe
 

Hello,

made a new gui for ccrypt, see picture.

Some new options and subdirectories are possible.

I have included the bin of ccrypt and wipe (http://lambda-diode.com/software/wipe/) for secure deleting.

Please test it carefully. This is my 2nd gui Wink

I'm happy about comments

Tested in puppy 4.1.2 and seems to work.

take care

What would make this absolutely fantastic (it's already great) would be to include ROX right click options for files and directories..

Because it would be really nice and easy to right click on a directory or text file and choose to encrypt/decrypt, like with the EncFS tool by jamesbond, which is linked to previously. on this thread...
