FileLock offers file, text 448-bit encryption

updated 10:20 am EDT, Fri August 8, 2008

FileLock released

Off Leash Developments has released its first application, FileLock 1.0, a small utility for encrypting files. FileLock uses the 448-bit Blowfish algorithm to securely encrypt files. Other features include text encryption, file verification, secure file deletion and a Finder contextual menu. The application features a drag and drop interface that makes choosing files to encrypt simple. After encrypting files users will still be able to backup, upload or send the encrypted files but they will only be able to be unlocked by someone with FileLock and the password. FileLock also features a password assistant that helps generate mathematically uncrackable passwords for the highest level of security. FileLock is available as a downloadable trial or a license can be purchased for $25.

    Keychain Integration?

    I can understand the principle of this app -- I'm far too worried about disk corruption to trust FileVault with everything on a massive virtual disk that might become unreadable.

    But unless this has some kind of Keychain support I would find it of limited use. Either you'll end up re-using the same password all over the place so that you only have to remember one brilliant password, or you'll have a host of files that are likely to stay encrypted until we have viable quantum computers because you can't remember the fifty brilliant passwords that it suggested.
