Keepassx

I use Truecrypt (hard drive), GnuPG (mail) and KeepassX every day - that's a tough call

so which one is this?

also, i don't understand the choices.
how does keepassx compare to tor-browser?
i use both, and imho their purpose doesn't even overlap.

The nominees and category descriptions should make this very clear.

This is explained very well in the MCA intro post, and you've been a member long enough to know the answer.

I like the keepass compatible options. I found an Open Source program that will display keepassx compatible databases using a ncurses/pdcurses front end for those who prefer a console mode option or don't have X installed.

Hasn't TrueCrypt been discontinued?

Yes, but the penultimate version 7.1a should still be fine and in fact has been audited (http://istruecryptauditedyet.com/) so people will still be using it.

Personally I've moved my encrypted containers on to VeraCrypt, which essentially took TrueCrypt 7.1a and continued developing it.

CryFS is possibly a little unknown for non KDE/Plasma users. There it just became integrated in the bottom menu bar with the latest updates (careful, there is momentarily no deleting test cases).

A teaser from their site (https://www.cryfs.org/)

Quote:

...
To hide file sizes, CryFS splits the content of a file into same-size blocks and encrypts these blocks individually. A tree structure is used to remember how the blocks belong together to form a file. This tree structure has very little overhead and itself is also stored using encrypted same-size blocks. To hide file metadata and directory structure, they are also represented using encrypted same-size blocks.

Duckduckgo is a search engine. There is a better search engine called StartPage.

I second that motion for adding duckduckgo to the list.

I've never heard of that one. I'll have to check it out.

I voted for GnuPG.

I also use loop-AES.

Keepass in combination with KeepassHttp-Connector in Firefox makes for a very nice integration.

Thomas Groman 02-03-2018 02:30 PM

What about ToX, RetroShare, and Mastodon?
