What is CryptoForge?

CryptoForge™ is a suite of encryption and privacy tools for personal and professional security. It allows you to protect the privacy of your sensitive files and messages by encrypting (enciphering) them with strong cryptographic algorithms. Once the information has been encrypted, it can be stored on insecure media or transmitted on an insecure network (like the Internet), and still remain secret. Later, the information can be decrypted (deciphered) into its original form.

CryptoForge integrates the best cryptography available today into the Windows environment. It is based on strong encryption algorithms: 448-bit Blowfish, 256-bit Rijndael (AES, American Encryption Standard), 168-bit TripleDES and 256-bit Gost. Unique features include multiple encryption, filename encryption, cipher speed test, and built-in compression. For more details, see Features. To learn how cryptography works, read Basic Concepts of Cryptography.

Originally developed for our own use, the name CryptoForge has grown to represent security and reliability to demanding users all over the world.

Icon_Warning CryptoForge has no back doors or escrow keys -there is absolutely no way of decrypting information without the correct password- so be careful not to forget your password.
