Based on open source, public domain encryption algorithms. The strong cryptography employed by CryptoForge is the best available today.

Impracticable brute-force attack - If one billion computers were each searching one billion keys per second, it would take over 10^24 years to recover information encrypted with a 168-bit algorithm (the age of the universe is 10^9 years).

Allows multiple encryption - Your information will be safe, even if in the future an algorithm is successfully attacked.

Built-in powerful compression – Compression strengthens cryptographic security, saves network bandwidth and reduces storage space.

Built-in file shredder – Matches and exceeds DoD specifications (U.S. Department of Defense).

Built-in secure text editor with WYSIWYG functionality – CryptoForge Text allows you to create, encrypt, and decrypt documents (that can contain embedded files) in a way that they can be sent via any e-mail, or text messenger program.

Supports 64-bit file sizes – Maximum theoretical file size is 16EB (exabytes). However, current NTFS implementation supports files of up to 16TB in size.

Intuitive, easy-to-use interface – Minimized learning curve.

Shell integration – You use windows and dialog boxes with which you are already familiar.

Filename encryption – CryptoForge can encrypt the name of the file along with the file contents and replace it with a randomly-generated filename.

Works with files of any type, on any kind of drive, even on network drives.

Passphrase memory – CryptoForge doesn't require that you enter your passphrase every time you want to encrypt or decrypt. It can store the passphrase in RAM memory for a user-specified time-out period.

Cipher speed meter – Provides more information for the user to choose the encryption algorithm(s).

No back doors or escrow keys – There is absolutely no way of decrypting information without the correct passphrase, so be careful not to forget your passphrase.

Passphrase quality meter – Estimates the quality of your passphrase or password.
