Re: security for important storage

Just keep the key on the physical media encrypted, too. You could use a password that you can more easily remember, but keeping it encrypted helps to protect the important key in case somebody gets it.

Re: Portable, windows 32 bits, does not open or start.

There are two windows executables you will find after installing: 1) aescrypt.exe 2) aescrrypt32.exe The first one is what you want if you are using the command-line. The second is only used when you double-click on a file with the file extension .aes. Don't try to run that directly, since it's not ...

Re: security for important storage

Waldo, 64 random characters is probably pretty good. Let's assume those were out of a character set of 16 characters (which appears to be what the site is using) and truly random. In that case, the bit entropy of your password can be computed as log2(16)*64 or 256 bits of entropy. See: https://www.w...

Re: android version

I do not have immediate plans to create an Android version, no. Those that are on Google Play are published by third parties, as you noted. I've had a number of exchanges with the author of Crypt4All . I trust what he's done and he did leave the option on the table to create an ad-free version. Perh...

Re: Encrypt 7zip file galaxy5

That's not AES Crypt, so all I can suggest is to get a zip tool that will work. If ES File Explorer doesn't handle encryption, perhaps fine another tool that will. For example, WinZIP for Android might do it. I have not tried it. That said, if you wish to encrypt files using AES Crypt, there are at ...

Re: Cannot load AES Crypt

As explained in the accompanying text file, you just need to run aescrypt.msi. Don't run setup.exe, as setup.exe attempts to install those files you already have.

Automatically configuring email

Folks, Several years ago when I worked on WebFinger , one of the original objectives was to be able to use it to automatically configure email. I have several different email clients and each one is a pain to configure each time. What's worse is that I have to help others set up their clients. It's ...

Google rejecting mail due to bad domain reputation

Folks, Packetizer has existed now nearly 20 years. It's hard to believe, but next month marks the 20 year old mark! During those years, we've run Google Adsense ads to help support our community-oriented web site. We've been in touch with folks at Google. We're very much known to Google. They probab...
