What are people saying about Kruptos 2 Professional

Genie au Travail What's more have Kruptos 2 that all freeware software doesn't have?
Dec 20 2011 at 2:31am Copy Link
0
Thiru That would depend on what freeware you are talking about. Most free file encryption programs (not full disk or vault encryption) simply encrypt and decrypt. Kruptos 2 Professional also offers:

. Fully integrated with Windows explorer
. Automatically re-encrypt files after editing
. Send encrypted email attachments via your email client
. Create encrypted zip file back-ups
. Create Self-extracting files that can be used anywhere
. Filename encryption
. Common password analyser
. Fail safe mechanisms so your original files are safe.
. File shredding
. Very few options
. Almost 10 years in development

And of course support, support, support

Michael R. I would like to have a crypting program, where I can define a sequence of directories (or files), which should be held encrypted on the harddisk. At window-start (or alternatively at the very first access to one of the files in such a directory) a message-box will be opened for a password to be entered. This password is stored (encrypted) inside the memory, so all the (encrypted) reading and writing is done automatically without bothering the user with any additional password-input (until the next restart or user-login).

Can your software do this?

Thinking about this, I also would like to be able to define more than one password for different usage. E.g. my source-files should be protected with another way, than financial data or personal images.

Thiru Hi Michael,

Kruptos 2 professional does not support persisting passwords in memory. Coincidently this is something we are working on right now and should be available soon. I really like your idea for the prompt at start-up and will investigate factoring this work into this feature.

Kruptos 2 does allow you to have more than one password, so you can encrypt as many files as you like using as many passwords as you like, in fact I strongly recommend the use of multiple passwords for extra security. Just make sure you use the hint field!

Does this help?

Michael R. Thanks for the quick answer.

Problem (for my kind of wanted usage) is the workflow (at least in your video). If I would have to decrypt/encrypt the files I wanted to use every time it's a big distraction from what I want to do.

Keeping the password in the memory is indeed a little dangerous. With an adequate hacker-tool it could be found out. A possibility to flush the passwords would be helpful.

I would implement it this way, that the moment the computer tries to access to a file, which is encrypted by Kruptos a window pops up which allows entering the password. If another file occurs and the formerly entered password(s) do not fit, another pasword-window pops up. So -staying with the example above - if the user has entered two passwords, one for the pics another for the financial data, he can work without interruption with his pics and his financial data. If he wants to enter his source-code though, he has to enter the third password...

Thiru Michael,

“Keeping the password in the memory is indeed a little dangerous.” Agreed, this is why we have resisted implementing this feature for quite some time now. Security is our number one objective so we are being very careful about how we implement and test this feature. Thank you for your implementation suggestions, they will be carefully considered.

Gunderic Hagen Does your application also encrypt emails and if yes, how would the recipient decrypt them?
Dec 21 2011 at 3:43am Copy Link

Thiru Hi,

No. Kruptos 2 can only encrypt email attachments so when the recipient receives the encrypted attachment all they need to access the files is the correct password. I personally use this feature when sending sensitive files or messages via email.

Genie au Travail I have downloaded and done some tests on a computer.
The results are good.
As you have a fair licence policy and provide a good support for your product, I will purchase a licence when the discount will be activate.

Please, consider to add to your software an "About" box with informations on the version and a changelog on your website.

Thiru Hi,

To view the about box you will need to open Kruptos 2 Professional UI (rather than using the Windows Explorer plug-in) and click the 'View help' button on the top right of the toolbar.

The version history can be viewed here: http://www.kruptos2.co.uk...rsion.html - It's not easy to find so we will make this more visible.

thank you.

Thiru Hello,

Kruptos 2 professional has 2 elements, the windows Explorer plug-in and a complete user interface program.

It’s important to note that if you have a 64bit computer then you will need to install the 64bit version of Kruptos 2 otherwise the plug-in for Windows Explorer will not work, you can find it here if this is the case (you will need to unistall the 32bit version first):

Hope this helps

Stephen Kreyling Is it possible to mask the contents on the encrypted file? This would help to keep it private.
Dec 21 2011 at 8:53pm Copy Link

Thiru Hi Stephen,

That’s exactly what Kruptos 2 does. Once you encrypt a file the only way you can view the contents of it is by providing the correct password. You can even encrypt the filename too.

Gunderic Hagen I would be the only user.

- Can I download your application in my PC AND my laptop?
- Does the recipient of the attachment need to also have your application downloaded?
- Are upgrades included?
Thanks

Thiru Yes you can install Kruptos 2 on both your PC and Laptop, in fact you can install on as many computers as you like as long as it is only the licence holder who is using the software. All updates are included in you purchased licence.

“Does the recipient of the attachment need to also have your application downloaded?” - It depends on which method you use. If you send an encrypted file then yes the recipient will need to have Kruptos 2 to decrypt the file (we have a free reader that allows you to decrypt your files) alternatively you can send what is known as a self-extracting file where you recipient needs to only know the shared password.

Gunderic Hagen I think I will be buying your application.

I am not sure,the difference between "sending an encrypted file" and the recipient needing to have your application downloaded and sending a "self extracting file" where the application is not needed. You care to elaborate? Thanks

Thiru Hi,
You can think of an encrypted file like this: If you send a Microsoft Excel document to a client then they need to have Microsoft Excel in order to open it. The same is true of Kruptos 2. When you encrypt a file Kruptos 2 creates a new encrypted file that only Kruptos 2 can read, so if you send this file to a client then they must have Kruptos 2 to open and decrypt the file.

You can get around this problem by creating a self-extracting file. A self-extracting file is a type of file that contains your encrypted files. The self-extracting file contains within it the software needed to unpack and decrypt all the files. The end user, therefore, does not need to install Kruptos 2 all they need is the correct password.

Does that make any sense?

Franck W The program looks good, and Steve Beckett support is really engaging.
I do not need a desktop encryprion tool right now. But, is there a portable version of kruptos to protect a usb flashdrive on the go? I'm a registered user of penprotect, but the licensing policy is not really generous and I might consider switching to another program.
Thanks!

Thiru Hi Franck,

We are working on the portable version of Kruptos 2 as we speak. It should be available early next year. I can confirm that the licence model will be the same as Kruptos 2 Professional i.e. per user so you can use it on as many computers and USB devices as you like.

Noggin The Nog When Kruptos decrypts a file, does it create a temporary file of the decrypted data? Or is read on the fly? And if it does create a temporary file, does Kruptos secure delete that file automatically when Kruptos is closed

Thiru Hi, Good question,

Yes, Kruptos 2 creates a temporary file. This is to ensure that if anything goes wrong, your original file is completely safe. The temporary file however will only ever contain encrypt data so there is no need to shred this file. Once encryption is complete the temporary file then becomes your encrypted file (after some integrity checks) and the original file is completely destroyed via a shredder.

1- How I can encrypt a 1 Terabyte USB hard drive.

2- Can I unlock the whole hard drive or just folders inside it.

3- The Hard drive is 90 percent filled. Will I have to shuffle files around to encrypt.

4- If part a large encrypted folder gets corrupted, will the encrypted folder still open or is the whole folder.

Thiru Hi Jon,

To answer your questions.

1) You would need to encrypt the highest level folder on your USB Drive

2) No. Kruptos 2 is designed for file\folder contents encryption only

3) Possibly. It would really depend on the size of individual files. For every file you encrypt, a temporary file of the same size is created. Kruptos will inform you if you run out of diskspace.

Thiru "Noggin The Nog"

kruptos 2 is 256bit encryption. the 128bit

The 128bit reference is when Kruptos 2 allowed you to choose which encryption method to use (due county legalities and others).

Kruptos 2 doesn’t create randomly generated key files so I couldn’t really compare the security. The create key from a file reads in the file contents and uses specific algorithms to improve the entropy i.e. key salting, key stretching and key derivation functions. I would recommend the file be at least 1024bytes.

Is encryption done with salt, if I encrypt the same file twice, will the cyphertext be the same?

Any thoughts about a public-key version?

What are the choices of encryption/hash algorithms?

Is the key stored in the encrypted version?

Did you say that an encrypted file can have multiple keys?

How do you generate the actual encryption key? Sources for entropy?

Are you fully committed to backwards compatibility for the long term?

Thiru Hi SB,
Some very good questions.

1) Yes Kruptos uses a salt, the salt is different for each and every file you encrypt so the ciphertext will be different..

2) File encryption doesn’t really warrant public key encryption
3)Kruptos 2 uses Blowfish in CBC mode, the hash algorithm is SHA256

4)No.

5)No.

6)First Kruptos salts and passes your password through SHA256 which is then stretched, that produces a very strong 256 bit 'encrypting key'. The 'encrypting key' is then passed through another special algorithm to produce the 'master encrypting key'.

7)Absolutely. Yes.

You can find more information on the techniques used for encryption on the Kruptos 2 webpage www.kruptos2.co.uk

Thiru Hi,

1) We will certainly consider text encryption

2) More options increase the likelihood of a security failure. Why do you think this is a good feature addition? Indecently Kruptos 2 has been specifically designed to switch-out any algorithm in the case one is broken, in fact AES has already been built into the system.

3)I’m not convinced asymmetric algorithms are the right choice for file encryption (none of our competitors us it). Is there a specific case you would like to cover?

I bought the software for several reasons and Steve's excellent attention to the conversation gave me the confidence that this is a developer who is keen on giving good support should it be needed.

Having previously lost a laptop, I've have become increasingly conscious of the importance of securing data. Also it does seems this product is being actively developed and the generous free upgrade policy clinched it for me.

Thank you Steve for your super participation in this conversation and to BDJ for bringing us another useful piece of software at a great promotional price.

S B Steve,

Thanks for your prompt and good answers.

I really like that Kruptos2 recursively encrypts whole folders.

Re: 2) Yes. (It would, however, be nice to be able just to send someone messages all easily encrypted with their public key, rather than having to perform a key-exchange exercises for each file. However, it does mean having generated key pairs, key management machinery, "key rings," etc.) ;-)

6) The actual encryption key is derived from salt and the given password. Is there an independent source of randomness?

7) Great!

Many thanks!

Noggin The Nog I imagine that it could be a helpful addition to an encryption program such as Kruptos 2 to have a function for generating public/private keypairs for use in email clients, and perhaps elsewhere, to avoid the at least theoretical security issue that flows from relying on a third part to provide keypairs, but I presume that such keypairs could have no relevance to Blowfish encryption since Blowfish is not an asymmetric encryption algorithm, and how practicable it would be I have no idea. Encryption of email is a dark area for me - I still do not understand how triple des can be used in the encryption of email, since my understanding is that triple des is a symmetric encryption algorithm.

John H I purchased this during the last BDJ sale.

Right click context menu encryption, how much easier can it get!

The interface is way simpler than True Crypt ..... True Crypt just does not understand that non programers might want to use an encryption program. A program is not free if it has the cost of a steep learning curve and lost files due to a hostile interface. Kruptos has no learning curve cost and is idiot proof.

Sometimes even the file name can give away sensitive information and Kruptos is gives the choice to mask file names in an encrypted folder. Not every encryption program does this.

Licensing policy is such that if the company goes out of business, is sold, I loose internet connection or the zombie apocalypse happens, I will still be able to load and activate Kruptos on any of my computers to access my files.

There is no effective cryptanalysis for Blowfish (as of 2012) with this in mind Blowfish is very secure. Kruptos 2 Professional has been designed in such a way that if Blowfish were to be considered weak then we would switch to using AES (AES is already in the program but not used).

Hope that helps

Thiru Roberto,

The send encrypted email attachment feature actually creates a Zip file that contains a self-extracting file which in turn contains your encrypted documents. Outlook, Thunderbird and most other email clients allow you to send .exe files this way however Gmail has started to peek inside your attached Zip files and check for blacklisted files i.e. Exe files and will then block the attachment.

One thing to note is we do provide a free Kruptos 2 file reader which will allow your clients to decrypt your secured files – (assuming they have the correct password) this way you can just send your encrypted documents which will not be blocked by any email providers.

Rick Radco This is a very nice program and I didn't want to wait for the deal to become available - so - I bought Kruprtos 2 Pro right from their website (where they offered a $7 off coupon) so I ended up paying $17.95 (normal price $24.95 at this writing) instead of $12.48 at the BitsDujor Deal. Impatience ( : )

After using the program a couple days and testing it after I bought it - I noticed it can take a long time to encrypt files especially if they are big.

Example - I encrypted a 217 MB file and it took 49 seconds - so I can only imagine how long it would take to encrypt say over 200 GBs of files like I have on my external harder Drives and even on my smaller 4 GB and 8 GB flsh drives if I wanted to encrypt everything on the drive.

I am using Win XP Pro 32 bit so maybe that has something to do with the slowness - and maybe on a Win 7 or 8 machine with 64 bit and 8 GB RAM or 16 GB RAM it would be super fast - I don't know.

All in all howerver - although it is it very slow to encrypt larger files on my XP Pro 32 bit PC - as in over 500 MBs or more -- Kruptos 2 Pro is still a VERY GOOD program and very easy to use. It is a tidy lttle program that should be on every computer if you have files you want to keep safe - whether on an external drive or files right on your PC.

I hope for future versions they will find a way to make the excryption process much faster so we will be able to encrypt really huge files (GBs - Giga Bytes of files) without having to wait what seems to be forever.

Still - this program is a winner all the way - plus the file shredder feature is a neat and quick way to shred files quick and safe.

Thanks for a nice program at a decent price. I give Kruptos 2 Pro 4.5 stars (5 stars if it was faster)

Sputnik Yesterday I have tried Kruptos 2 Pro.

The first thought that come to my mind about this software is that its UI is very pleasing from a visual point of view. This is surely a quality that every software should possess, but this is only one aspect of the question.

However, the first negative aspect I encountered with it is that the contextual menu didn't appeared at all in a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro.

There is also something to be mentioned here : it is very useful to be able to create different "projects" in which to store a certain amount of files.

But there is a limitation to this aspect : after you have created such a project with files of your choice, if you move one of these files from its original location, that is at the moment of the creation of the project, this file does not appears anymore in the listing of the files belonging to the project.

If you are to be using the same password for all your projects, this will not be a problem. But if you are giving a different password for your different projects, if you move a file belonging to a specific project from its original location, you will be still able to open it with the right password but you will have to remember to which project you affected this file at the moment of its crypting. If you dont remember this, you will have to try the different paswords you use for your different projects before getting the right password...

This mean that Kruptos should have the capacity to follow up the displacement of any crypted file affected to a specific project if the mentioned problem is to be overcomed.

Thiru Robert,

Apologies for not answering your question fully, it was 3am here in the UK. Moving your files is a problem since your Kruptos 2 project does not know where you have moved your file too. Your problem has highlighted a bug in the program as Kruptos 2 should notify you if a file has been removed or is missing, this will be fixed in the next release. My advice would be to always use the hint field; this way if you’re in this situation you can check the password hint and move it to the appropriate project.

Does that help?

Thiru Hi Stephen,

Kruptos 2 go isn’t quite ready for beta testing as we still have the installer, help and a small number of bugs to address. We’re looking to release late March – early April. We should however be ready for a beta release in the next week or so, we can drop you a line when ready if this is acceptable?

Thiru Zoran,

From our website:

Kruptos 2 professional uses industry standard techniques and unmodified algorithms to perform encryption on your files. At the time of writing all algorithms used are considered safe and unbroken. Kruptos 2 Professional uses the following algorithms to encrypt your files: Blowfish in CBC mode and SHA256, the following techniques are also used during the encryption process: Key stretching, Salt and Key derivation functions.

Thiru Hi Dillon,

It would depend on what mechanism you used. If you double clicked the file and Kruptos 2 opened your file in ‘Auto re-encryption’ mode then unencrypted versions would not be stored in the cloud. This is because Kruptos 2 takes a copy of your encrypted file and stores it in a temporary location (outside of your Dropbox folder) and all changes saved are to the temporary file. When you close the file it is at that point when your original is updated with the new content.

If you choose to simply decrypt the file then yes temporary data could be stored in the cloud. Obviously my advice would be to use the auto re-encryption method.

Pim Joosten I am looking for a replacement for TrueCrypt. What I do (a.o.) in TrueCrypt is that I have a container that contains all my client files. This container has a volume label in Windows if I open it in TrueCrypt. All files in this volume are automatically encrypted, also when a file is added.

I installed a trial version of the program, looked at your website and read all previous comments here, but to me it seems that I have to encrypt added files manually every time I add a file to a folder. What I would like to have is that a file is added to a folder (or volume) it is automatically encrypted. Is/will this be possible? If so, how?

I find Linux Mint operating system truly elegant and light which I cannot say for most free open source programs. TrueCrypt is especially clunky which is why I think Kruptos is especially elegant.

I still use my computer to compute and design things. I see Microsoft Windows as an entertainment system and marketing tool that owns my computer. Not the optimum environment for doing proprietary design work. Please consider some kind of Linux support.

One suggestion. Using "Encrypt" from the right context menu, the user is required to type the password in twice without ever seeing the password text.

Please give us the choice to see the password text and only enter it in once. The current method slows me down and forces me to use a shorter password. I bet 99 percent of your users are never in a situation with someone looking over their shoulder to where the password has to be hidden.

Thanks for a great program all these years.

Thiru Hi John,

I'm with you on the Linux front, after the initial learning curve its great. Problem is, we've just not had the interest in porting it over, things re changing however so you never know in the future.

If you're using the latest version of Kruptos 2 Professional there is a new option to see your password whilst typing. Interestingly, when when the feature was added we allowed the user to enter their password once if the password was in plain text.We reverted back to the dual password entry after many legitimate concerns about [mis]typing in a single passwords.

Peter Martin Please tell us more about

Double-click integration
Kruptos 2 Professional will automatically re-encrypt your file when you're finished editing so you don't have to worry about your file being left unsecured.

How does that work? Does Kruptos 2 allow one to change an encrypted file with out leaving a unencrypted residue? Does it decrypt the file lets you change it then re-encrypt the file automatically? Does it incinerate the unencrypted file residue or just delete it allowing others to undelete it? Does this work with the 2-go USB version.

As a suggestion, In future editions, You might consider a feature of automatically encrypting and backing up a file after modification. Like making an automatically encrypted backup (to a different location) of a file every-time it is modified.

Thank you for your help

Thiru Hi Peter,

Double click integration works like this:

1) Double click your encrypted file
2) Enter your password
3) Kruptos 2 will then decrypt your file to a temporary location then open it for editing\viewing
4) Whilst viewing\editing Kruptos 2 waits in the background for you to finish
5) When you're finished editing Kruptos 2 re-encrypts the file, runs some integrity checks then finally destroys (shred) all temporary files

Note Kruptos 2 also has measures in place for unexpected situations such as power outages whilst editing your files.

Kruptos 2 Go works in the same manner.

Thiru @Flo,

Your right to be paranoid since the NSA and other big brother agencies have a lot of power, this is one of the reasons I personally don't trust security programs from huge companies like MS and Apple.

All i can do is assure you our software has no back-doors or hidden NSA secret doors, however the only way to be sure is have the code checked over by an expert who isn't in the governments pocket. Expensive!

Our security expertise comes from university research projects and the proceeding years of implementing file encryption software (10 years). We ALWAYS write our software to industry standards and ALWAYS use unmodified open source algorithms (AES, Blowfish, SHA256).

Mark Johnson I just did a trial of your product and have a general comment but also have run into some problems.

First the general comment - the name "Kruptos 2" is an odd naming convention because it is easy for people to think the '2' part is the version number. As in, "While reviewing file encryption software I did not look at Kruptos because it has been version Kruptos 2 for several years now and has never been updated to Kruptos 3".

--- Ok, problems:

1. I want obscured file names and hidden file extensions. I have 'Hide file extensions' checked in options, and when encrypting have 'Disguise filename' checked. Result: The setting for hiding file extensions is ignored, and I end up with obscured file names but the original extension is part of the file name as if I did not have the option selected. Info: The option 'Hide file extensions' seems to only work if the filename is not being obscured. If I am going to the trouble of obscuring the filenames I would definitely not want the extensions to be left fully visible!

Also on #1 -- I am confused on the way these things are organized. The ability to hide file extensions is a global setting, and is not available on the dialog for performing an actual encryption. The ability to obscure the filename is not a global setting, and is only available on the dialog for performing an actual encryption. I think these options should be grouped together, the user should be able to set a default for both, and both should be available for change

2.
A lot of people do not use Windows Explorer but instead use more powerful replacements. I use Directory Opus ( http://www.gpsoft.com.au/ ), but some people use Xplorer2 ( http://zabkat.com/ ), and there are a handful of other good quality ones that far exceed Windows Explorer. These act as complete replacements for Win Explorer, and basically users never touch Windows Explorer again.

In Directory Opus 11: The context menu encryption/decryption does not work at all if any folder is selected. The encryption only works if files are selected. No error is given and the software goes through its paces as if it is working, but no success dialog appears and nothing is encrypted. For example, in a folder with 8 files and 2 child folders I can select 1-8 of those files and the process works fine. However, if I try to also include one of the folders, then no work is done but no errors result. The same problem exists with the other context menu actions (zip, etc.)
Control test: I brought up Windows Explorer and tried the same thing. All features worked when a folder was selected in Windows Explorer.
Need: Please make changes needed to ensure the product works correctly from the context menu in the major Windows Explorer replacements.

3. The app is not aware of changes done through the explorer context menu. In the app I created a project with a couple of folders of encrypted files. In the explorer context menu I decrypted a handful of files in one of those folders. Opening the project in the app, the currently decrypted files still showed to be encrypted. Decrypting the project through the app caused errors on those files that were decrypted manually. The project display then showed those files to be encrypted, and the rest of the project to be decrypted. I saw no way to update the project to be aware that those project members had been decrypted manually.

I was going to test this one more thoroughly but was not allowed by the application as my trial had elapsed. That was pretty frustrating since I had only been using the trial for a few minutes.

4. The trial is not sufficient to give the app a good workout. Since the trial restriction is not a timeframe but instead a count of how many actions you can take in the app, it needs to be more generous.

5. As explained above, my trial expired when I was in the middle of testing #3. At that point all files in the project were decrypted (a few manually and the rest through the app's project decrypt). The app was displaying the project incorrectly as the ones that were manually decrypted still showed as encrypted files. I then closed the app without clicking a 'Save' button. I then reopened the app, and it automatically tried to reopen my last-used project. Instead of displaying the project, a popup appeared that stated "Kruptos 2 has detected that the following files are missing from your project". A list below that showed all files in the entire project, with their encrypted (obscured) names. These names were of course not valid since I had decrypted the project just before closing the app and reopening it. The dialog that said all the files were missing from the project would not allow me to continue without either removing 100% of the files from the project (one by one) or readding the files to the project (one by one) by browsing to where files matching the names of each obscured file name was.

Summary of problem: It seems that a lot of things related to projects are broken. If you decrypt a project and then forget to click the save button when exiting, it appears you might as well go to wherever you saved the project file and delete it before reopening the app, as it will painfully make you go through each file in the app individually and remove it from the project or locate it by the (non-existent) filename somewhere on disk. Also if you encrypt or decrypt through the explorer context menu any files that are part of a project, you have just broken the project and will have to manually remove and readd those files to the project.

6. Minor bug, but should be fixed... In the app if you go to the 'View' tab and turn off the Explorer and then turn it on again, the Explorer will be covering a good bit of the rest of the screen. You have to resize the Explorer window to get the rest of the screen to pop into place where it should be.

--- Not bugs but desperately needed in the app:

A) A way to open the app without it always opening the last project you worked on.

B) It needs to keep track of its projects. You should be able to get a list of projects, not have to browse to where you saved each individual project. This feeds directly into A) above; if the app opened displaying a list of projects to select from that would be perfect.

C) I like that the app has the option to remember your password after you have entered it once in a session. To ensure nobody else has access to the session password all you have to do is close the app. That is great. However, the application needs to use that session password to the user's advantage more. For example, when you are looking at a project that has filenames obscured, all you see are hundreds of rows of gibberish names. With those gibberish names there is no way to select one or two files to decrypt, you have to decrypt the entire project. It would be much better if there was an option to also display the decrypted file names in the grid. Of course for that option the password would have to entered (or already in the session).

Conclusion: I like the app and came close to purchasing it. It is bugs #3 and #5 above that kept me from pulling the trigger. The ability to so easily destroy the 'projects' that are such an important part of the application causes me to conclude there's hardly any testing going on of product features. Perhaps I'll take a look again at the app in a year or two when hopefully feature testing is taken a little more seriously. The app has a lot of potential and hopefully improvements will come.

Thanks, Mark.

Rick Truell Steve Beckett: "All i can do is assure you our software has no back-doors or hidden NSA secret doors,

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, and I mean no offense, but your assurance means nothing. RSA was assuring people for more than 2 decades that their encryption products had no back door in them. And yet, it was just recently revealed that their products do indeed have, and always have had, a back door in them, required and financed by the NSA...thus rendering RSA products useless for security uses. Worse yet, and a horrible black mark against people that say that Open Source security products are the best because anyone can examine the source code for problems, the source code for RSA's products was poured over by thousands of people over the years, and yet none of those people found/noticed the back door.

"however the only way to be sure is have the code checked over by an expert who isn't in the governments pocket. Expensive! "

Perhaps so, but it is what you *must* do in order for your security products to be taken seriously. If your security products are not *certified* to be clean of back doors, "call home" routines, malware, etc., then there are thousands and thousands of people that will never come anywhere near your products. Maybe it's expensive...but it's the cost of doing business in the security field. Few people are simply going to "take your word for it"...certainly not after the RSA debacle.

Thiru Guys,

Apologies for the delay, some ISP issues.

My personal viewpoint is all feedback is very welcome, good or bad. Some good points have been raised and will be looked into and potentially fixed in the next release (a couple of the issues have already been fixed and are in test as we speak)

I can't comment on third party explorer applications as Kruptos 2 is written specifically For Windows, which 99.9% of people use.

I'll write again about our company shortly, once our ISP issues have been resolved.

Last words, all feedback makes our software the best it can be and is always welcome. Thanks guys!

Thanks

*******************************************
Quotation from Steve Beckett, 2 ½ years ago (Oct 14 2012 at 12:11am) :

Moving your files is a problem since your Kruptos 2 project does not know where you have moved your file too. Your problem has highlighted a bug in the program as Kruptos 2 should notify you if a file has been removed or is missing, this will be fixed in the next release. My advice would be to always use the hint field; this way if you’re in this situation you can check the password hint and move it to the appropriate project.

*******************************************

Does the problem have been fixed ?

Thiru "Kruptos 2 should notify you if a file has been removed or is missing, this will be fixed in the next release" yes this has been fixed. e.g. if you remove a file from your computer that is in your Kruptos 2 library then you will be notified about the missing file when you start the software

Thiru Danny,

We currently have no way to identify BitsDuJour customers, for now. Since a major upgrade only comes along every year or two then I guess one email per year isn’t so bad considering the free upgrade ? In terms of offering a special BDJ lifetime licence, in theory this is a great idea but in practice this would leave the software wide open to piracy as we would have a static licencing system (we change this every release).

Thiru Sputnik,

"OK, but what about if I would transfert a crypted file which belongs to a "project", to another location ?" then as far as the software is concerned that file no longer exists.

All software is the same, for example if you create a MS Word document then later move it to a new location or delete when you try to open it via Word's recent file list you'll be informed that the file no longer exists and given the option to remove it. There is no way to avoid this situation other than don't move the file!

Thiru "How can i do it ? i tried many ways... " If you are using Windows Explorer then right click the file then choose 'View File name'

If you're using the Library then you'll have to wait for version 5.1 (later this week) as there is a bug that wont allow you to view the file name - ordinarily this option is part of the encryption group.

Thank you for your answer, but I would just like to check something more with you about this subject.

Could Kruptos, when it is opening up, check the Master File Table of each drive currently opened to make a list of all the files crypted by itself, so that Kruptos may show, in a special folder inside the porjects' tree, all the crypted files that do not belong to an existing project.

By this way it would be easier for the user to transfer to an existing project any file which would no longer be listed in any project because this file would have been moved by the user to another location after it has been assigned to a particular project.

I have also a question about the special licensing of Kruptos for BitsDuJour's customers. It is written, at the beginning of this page, that these customers will have a Liftetime License. OK, but if you ever change your mind on this, will the customers who would have bought Kruptos while this special licensing would have been active keep their Lifetime License ?

How would you do to distinguish the BitsDuJour's customers who benefits from such a licensing from the customers who don't ?

Thank you very much for your availability !

Thiru Sputnik,

Yes we could do this but as you would imagine searching the entire file table is not practical and would be very slow, so that idea isn’t going to work.

What we’ve considered is this: if you encrypt\decrypt or shred a file within Windows Explorer then we could update your Kruptos 2 library with the new information. Again there is a performance hit here if you have thousands of files in your library. This idea is actually on the to-do list for version 5.2 and will become an option.

In terms of the BDJ upgrade offer, this is the 3rd promotion we’ve done with this agreement and see no reason to change things. As it stands there is no way to distinguish BDJ customers from normal customers, with that in mind when a new major version is released you will need to contact us and we’ll do the rest. It’s also worth noting that this arrangement is for the promotion only and does not cover the everyday discount deal.

Sputnik @ Steve Beckett

I have some difficulties to understand why it would take a long time for Kruptos to make a listing of all the files which would have been crypted by it.

Take a free searching software as "Everything" : this sofware is able to give you almost instant results when you indicate what to search for. Even if you search for a file or folder you have just added a moment ago, "Everything" will show you this file or folder in an instant manner.

Why could you not implement such a searching engine inside Kruptos so that it could search automatically when it opens up and show instant results like "Everything" ?

You may find the software "Everything" at this address : http://www.voidtools.com/

The idea about which you talk in your last comment and that you want to implement in the version 5.2 doesn't concern what I am talking about and this idea would be of no use for me, so that I would not activate this option.

As for the licensing question, I was talking about distinguishing between BDJ customers only and not between BDJ customers and normal customers. My question was : how will you distinguish between BDJ customers who benefit from Lifetime License from BDJ customers who don't ?

Thank you !

Thiru Sputnik,

We're getting off topic here. Kruptos 2 Professional is about file encryption, not a file searching (this is the same for any other product that produces custom files).

You can be sure that there has been a lot of work from the guys who produced 'Everything' so performance is great. You could use that utility to search for your encrypted files and add them to your library, no?

To be perfectly honest, I believe we’ve has 2 requests out of 500,000 users spanning 10 years for this kind of behaviour, we specialise in security and will keep it that way.

As I said in my previous reply we don’t distinguish between BDJ customers, the only difference is BDJ customers don’t pay for major upgrades, that’s it!

Roger Rabbit I bought the lifetime license when this was on BDJ last time round and when I received an email 2 days ago telling me about the new version 5, I emailed Support for a license key and received one from Steve within minutes! (Depends on your time zone of course.) Seems to me if they are going to especially include a lifetime license it’s not a great chore for me to send an email whenever a new version is released to request an updated license code.
I was very pleased with version 4, but 5 is even better, with just a single password to open the software which can then be used with subsequent encryptions.
Thoroughly excellent software and a bargain to boot!

Because of the way this Library works, I think that I will stay with AxCrypt.

Thiru Hi Mike,

I was one of the original developers of Kruptos 2. It started life as a thin layer above the Blowfish algorithm, MD5 and other common techniques to enable users to encrypt files.

Over the past 10 years or so it has evolved to what you see today. We're not cryptographers but rather security specialist that use the expertise of cryptographers and their algorithms.

"security professionals say almost all problems with any crypto program is the *implementation*." - this is so, so true. !

I've only just got in the door and don't have time to read the 40 odd comments above:

Is there anything on today's order/receipt or PREViOUS Bits Du Jour order/receipts that indicates the following Lifetime Updates info:

"... the vendor agreed on providing free updates for life for BitsDuJour customers ..."

Reason I'm asking: I made my 2nd purchase of Kruptos software but this time it was the Bundle in 3rd/4th October 2014 BUT there is nothing that indicates Bits Du Jour customer - although I have ONLY purchased computer software through Bits Du Jour Specials since mid 2009.

I only have access to my email records at present, as I'm trying to recover some records that were incorrectly deleted by 'this stupid user'. Those records include SCREENSHOTS That I Always Take of Bits Du Jour page and purchasing screens too.

----------

Reason I say my "2nd purchase of Kruptos software is because the first time I inadvertently found myself in hospital part way through purchase procedure and from memory I contacted you in once I got out of hospital and because of that entire kerfuffle (incorrect spelling?) I never asked you if my original purchase qualified for the "... the vendor agreed on providing free updates for life for BitsDuJour customers ..." that You have run on Bits Du Jour offerings over the last few years.

Seriously, AES-128 is still secure enough to secure your personal italian's spaghetti sauce recipe or even your income tax declaration.

People who gets all that is necessary to crack AES-128, if it's possible, will not lose their time with people like you and me that are not billionaires or millionaires from which to steal money, or who doesn't possess any information which would be interesting for the NSA, the CIA and maybe the FBI.

As of the obfuscation of the filenames, I would not personally use that function.

Yes, Kruptos has a little better security compared to AxCrypt (AES-256 vs AES-128) and a couple of additional functionalities over AxCrypt, but I don't really need these.

John Hood As usual Constantin and Nico, you folks are the greatest and so is/are your website(s). Perhaps I could have been a little more clearer. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate.

I meant to tell you that I (and maybe others) am noticing a trend throughout Software-dom. I am seeing quite a bit of software timing out on an annual basis aka becoming what could be labeled as Subscription-ware. It can be missed if the buyer is not a diligent reader of the authors' sites/descriptions. Some permit a lifetime subscription - at a significantly higher price. We in the buying community need to pay attention to this trend. Microsoft is a leader in this with their Office 365 annual re-up game. Free or cheap rides are becoming fewer every day.

Noggin The Nog You say "Please note folks: the vendor agreed on providing free updates for life for BitsDuJour customers, even if the upgrade policy for the products is free upgrades per major + minor release.", but being a Bits du Jour customer, and having purchased my licence for Kruptos via Bits du Jour, when I asked for an update on that basis, Kruptos simply would not reply. I emailed them a number of times on an address that had worked for other communications, and so it seems they must have intended to ignore my request. I wonder therefore whether I have misunderstood the meaning of the statement I have quoted, and what it actually means. Could you please explain?

Noggin The Nog You.

More specifically, 'supportkruptos2.co.uk'(the address used by your colleageue Laura) and 'rootkruptos2.co.uk' (the address you had previously written to me from) on 18 June, 19 June, 24 November (with attached emails showing my purchase of Kruptos 2 via Bits du Jour), 25 November, 27 November and 22 December 2015. Looking back, you replied on 18 June and then on 24 November saying "Do you not already have a version 5 activation code?", but did not respond to my subsequent 3 emails pointing out that I had not heard from you, and asking you to confirm that my licence carries with it free updates for life. I also included your colleague Laura, who corresponded from supportkruptos2.co.uk, in my email of 22 December because you were no longer replying to my enquiry. In that email I said:

"I do not appear to have heard from you.

Would you please provide me with a licence for v5, or shall I simply re-use my licence for v4? As I mentioned below, I purchased my licence for v4 via BitsDuJour."

I received no reply.

I hope that information is of assistance.

Thiru Hello,

I've traced your email and we did send you a version 5 activation code, hence the "Do you not already have a version 5 activation code?"

As I recall, you installed version 5 then later uninstalled as you did not like the new library interface (which we discussed the pros/cons). I currently don't have full access to my emails so I'm not sure what happened after our conversation.

I'll take this offline and contact you later.

I'm not sure where you are seeing version 5.0.2.0 as there is no such version available. The above version label is 6.0.0.1 which was correct when this deal started, we've just updated to 6.1.0.2.


The issue you are seeing is due to file permissions on your Windows machine, you'll need to make sure you're an administrator on your box.

Bjondc Can you use the 2Go version on multiple USB drives?
(side question -- if so, do they all need to use the same password?)

The "fine print" on its BdJ page mentions computers, not e.g. thumb-drives, although one of the comments (from 2013) seems to say it's OK for multiple drives.

I have both K2Pro & 2Go from previous BdJ offers but haven't yet gotten to using them.

Nevermind! (sort of) The EULA on installation answered the question on multiple uses. I hope I'm correct that each USB can have its own p/w if desired?

Still no solution ?

Thiru Long file names should be fine.

In your case it was the use of a non-ASCII character within the filename.

Unfortunately, Kruptos 2 cannot handle Unicode characters, we're still looking into converting the code to use Unicode but it's is a very large task with many opportunities for security issues.

Colin McAllister Hi. I have documents that are currently tagged (in-file) with tags/keywords and also by Tabbles. This makes them much easier to find during searches. For those as yet untagged, I use Docfetcher to search for (in-file) specific words.

My question is this: Can files that are encrypted with Kruptos 2 Professional still be tagged so they can be found in searches? I think in-file searches such as Docfetcher would struggle, but would "file properties" type taggers work with Kruptos 2 Professional? Thanks.

Richard Blake Does K2Pro include a command-line program?
If so, is it possible to decrypt a file with the output going to stdout, so it can be displayed or piped into another program. That would be handy for an encrypted file of credentials, where I just want to view the creds on the screen and copy/paste into a login screen ... something like this:
E:\secure>k2p -e -p mypassword pswdfile.txt.k2p|find "paypal"

K2Go: Is there one password for each vault, covering all files in that vault? Can I have more than one vault on a single flash drive (with different p/w for each)?

Thanks.

Thiru @Richard Blake,

Yes, Kruptos 2 supports command-line program,

Here is example how to use Kruptos 2 Command-Line tool,

C:\Program Files\Kruptos 2 Software\Kruptos 2 Professional>Kruptos2CL.exe


*************************************************************************
* Kruptos 2 Command Line ver 2.0 *
* ¬ 2017 Kruptos 2 Software *
* www.kruptos2.co.uk *
* *
*************************************************************************


Command Argument Description Required
_________________________________________________________________________

-p Your password Password must be at least 6 chars required
-e none encrypt files or folders required
-d none decrypt files or folders required
-s none shred files or folders required
-file Path to file Process single file required
-folder Path to folder Process folder contents required
-hint Password hint A hint optional
-o none Obfuscate filenames optional
-r none Process read only files optional
-log true or false log results to file optional
_________________________________________________________________________


Examples:

Encrypting the entire contents of a folder:
Kruptos2CL -p"password" -e -hint"a hint"-folder"c:\test"

Encrypting a single file:
Kruptos2CL -p"password" -e -hint"a hint"-file"c:\test\myFile.exe"

Decrypting the entire contents of a folder:
Kruptos2CL -p"password" -d "-folder"c:\test"

Shredding the entire contents of a folder:
Kruptos2CL -s "-folder"c:\test"

Note: there are no spaces between command and argument.
i.e. Correct: -p"password" Incorrect -p "password"
C:\Program Files\Kruptos 2 Software\Kruptos 2 Professional>*

To answer to your second question about K2GO, You can have multiple folder under the same vault with same master password. K2GO currently not support to have different password for each vault/folder.

Hope this helps. Thank you!.

CFGuy Dear Kruptos,
Thanks so much for your program offer today. I have a question regarding encrypted file access within other programs, and specifically about possible delays or speed of access/update degradation of encrypted files within other programs. Does encrypting files (or folders full of files) slow down the access of these files within programs that access them? For example, if I use Nuance PaperPort Professional (a document management program that organizes individual PDF Files within folders), will I notice a delay (even slightly) when access Kruptos encrypted PDF files from within the PaperPort Professional program? Similarly, what if I were to encrypt my Quicken (financial management program) data file - would I notice any reduced speed in opening, accessing or updating this encrypted file within the Quicken program?
Also, are there any known or reported problems with using programs such as PaperPort Professional or Quicken to access Krupos encrypted files?
Thanks so much.

Thiru @CFGuy, We don't have any known problems with PaperPort/Quiucken to access the encrypted files. Normally, there will be negligible amount of delay in opening encrypted files and this delay depends on the file/folder size as well and this slight delay is normal for any decrypting program.

Btw, Kruptos 2 Software has improved a lot with current version and current version software encrypt/decrypt 50% more faster than previous version.

Colin McAllister Hi. Can I just ask a couple of questions?

1. Is the process
a) I encrypt a document...you create a temporary document (containing encrypted data....once the checks are made, that temporary document becomes the encrypted version....the original (unencrypted) version is then shredded? Or
b) There is an encrypted version of the document *plus* the original unencrypted version - effectively doubling the amount of disk space needed?

2. I can move/read encrypted files from my pc on my android phone and visa versa?

Thanks.

Thiru @Colin McAllister,

Here is response to your questions,

1) Once a file is encrypted successfully, the un-encrypted file is safely shredded and there is no change in the disk space.
2) Yes, you can move encrypted files between your PC as well Android Phone. In fact you move between Mac as well.

Thank you.

Colin McAllister Hi. I can't find the cloud integration in the trial version.

The help file suggests there should be a cloud icon beside the other three icons in the library section, but it isn't there. It is also supposed to be possible to choose between cloud services via the encrypt padlock, by choosing "send to". But there are no cloud services listed there either.

I can send an encrypted file to my local Dropbox folder, an it does show up on my cloud folder, but it's encrypted and I'm guessing it needs to be downloaded to be decrypted before it can be viewed?
