Exlade Cryptic Disk Home Publisher's description
from Exlade, Inc.
Cryptic Disk is a complete solution for protecting files from unauthorized access.
Cryptic Disk is a complete solution for protecting files from unauthorized access. The program creates virtual encrypted disks as well as encrypting hard disks, USB drives and memory cards. This allows you to maintain secrets both on a home computer and on a workstation. Data encryption makes use of the best algorithms (any of the following modern cryptographic algorithms can be used: AES/Rijndael, Serpent, Twofish, Blowfish, CAST6), and takes place in real time without affecting computer performance. Cryptic Disk provides its users with maximum functionality for protecting their information.
Encrypted virtual and physical disks are mounted as separate disks attached to a drive letter of your choice, or an ordinary folder on NTFS disks. They do not have any special markers which give away that they are, in fact, an encrypted disk. Addition protection can be provided using steganography, by creating hidden encrypted disks inside of other ones.
Cryptic Disk allows users to increase the encryption key size from 256 to 2944 bits by using cascade encryption (the use of multiple algorithms to encrypt data in sequence). This significantly increases the protection for encrypted data against being cracked.
The program supports XTS mode, developed specially for encrypting disk data. The program boasts strong protection from brute force password attacks in accordance with PKCS #5 v2, as well as a virtual keyboard which protects user-entered passwords from keyloggers.
The only way to access encrypted data is by using key files or entering the password which only you know.
Cryptic Disk has configurable automatic actions upon mounting or dismounting an encrypted disk: play WAV files, or launch programs or scripts in the CMD Shell, Windows Script and PowerShell languages.
Cryptic Disk can also function in portable mode, which does not require that it first be installed on a computer before use. Use Cryptic Disk and see just how precious complete peace of mind can be!
