Cryptola is a powerful, easy-to-use file encryption tool
for Windows. I wrote Cryptola because I wanted to protect
my system backups (.zip archives that
I store online).
Cryptola uses cryptographic technology designed by the National
Security Agency (NSA) and published by the NIST as a U.S. Federal
Information Processing Standard.
Cryptola is easy to use! Just:
- Select a file.
- Select an action (encrypt or decrypt).
- Enter the password.
- Click "Do it!"
Cryptola attaches the .cry extension to an encrypted
file. The original file is not altered.

requires the free Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1 framework available
