Cloaker aims to provide the most straightforward file encryption possible. Just drop a file onto the window, set a password, and choose where to save it. To decrypt, drop the encrypted file on the window, enter the password, and choose the output location. (Tip: decrypt to a ramdisk for temporary use to avoid writing data to permanent storage.) No installation required! On Windows it's a single
.exe, on Mac a standard
.app bundle, and on Linux a single executable
Backward compatibility note: to decrypt a file made with version 1.0 or 1.1 of Cloaker (with Encrypt and Decrypt buttons), the filename must end with the ".cloaker" extension. Files encrypted with later versions are not subject to this restriction.
Version 2.1 Note: Fixes the file dialog boxes on Linux which were not showing the proper icons and crashing when
Computer was selected.
Very simple cross-platform file encryption
Cloaker aims to be the most straightforward file encryption possible. Just drop a file onto the window and set a password. To decrypt, select "Decrypt", drop the encrypted file on the window, and enter the password.
Note 1: the Linux version in this release requires at least glibc version 2.25. I don't currently have a static-linking Qt installation on an older machine to build with, but I might be able to set one up if there's need.
Note 2: after a bug fix for the 1.1 release, I forgot to bundle the Qt libs properly for the Mac version and it wouldn't launch. This has been fixed.
