Uses the PGP standard which has gone through decades of improvements and testing
How does this work?
Easy File Encryptor/Decryptor utilizes symmetric encryption from the PGP protocol. Your password acts as the symmetric key during the encryption and decryption process.
The PGP implementation used in this project comes from the open source project OpenPGP.js
Encrypting and Decrypting on the Terminal
First, you must install a PGP client on your computer. GNU's implementation, GPG, is quite popular and available on most common platforms.
Here is how to encrypt files on the terminal
gpg --symmetric file.txt
You are then asked to enter the encryption passphrase.
Decrypting is similar; just pass the encrypted file to gpg
And enter in the passphrase
