Always in hope to secure confidential files from Govt. Agencies, Hackers or by someone else, users always in search for a service that encrypt their files securely, but it is too hard to secure a file that is unbreakable.
To make encryption more easier and powerful, a 23-year old Cryptocat developer Nadim Kobeissi made an easy small encryption program that encrypts every type of file and the most important thing is —it is unbreakable, means no one will be able to decrypt that file even the govt. agencies like NSA and GCHQ would not be able to decrypt that.
Nadim will release a beta version of an all-purpose file encryption program called miniLock at the HOPE hacker conference in New York later this month to protect your files with strong encryption than ever.
You may able to get that tool soon as a Chrome Extension.
“The tagline is that this is file encryption that does more with less,” says Nadim, a 23-year old coder, activist and security consultant. “It’s super simple, approachable, and it’s almost impossible to be confused using it.”
How it Works?
There is no need to even register or log in every time upon the tool launches, the user has to enter a passphrase, that miniLock requires to create a strong public key for your file, the passphrase should contain a lot of symbols and numbers and as many as 30 characters.
The Public Key provided by the miniLock called its id (miniLock id,) along with the public key a private key generated which user never sees and is erased when the tool closes. Auto Destroying without revealing the Private Key is also a feature that makes the tool more strong.
“No logins, and no private keys to manage. Both are eliminated. That’s what’s special,” says Nadim. “Users can have their identity for sending and receiving files on any computer that has miniLock installed, without needing to have an account like a web service does, and without needing to manage key files like PGP.”
Nadim previous creation is Cryptocat, a secure chat program, but as it suffered from several serious security flaws—the security community decided to dismiss it as useless or worse.
On 18th July, Full Technical specifications and features will be introduced by Nadim himself at HOPE hacker conference in New York. In the presentation, he will present a beta version of the Tool, as in the meantime the Tool is under development mode and many changes would be made into that.
The Tool will not be released initially, but its code will be soon available for review on GitHub, so the programmers and hackers fill any loop hole inside the tool before its release.
