cryptomator v1.6 alpha2 releases: Multi-platform transparent client-side encryption of your files in the cloud
Cryptomator is provided free of charge as an open-source project despite the high development effort and is therefore dependent on donations.
Cryptomator offers multi-platform transparent client-side encryption of your files in the cloud.
- Works with Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, ownCloud, Nextcloud and any other cloud storage service which synchronizes with a local directory
- Open Source means: No backdoors, control is better than trust
- Client-side: No accounts, no data shared with any online service
- Totally transparent: Just work on the virtual drive as if it were a USB flash drive
- AES encryption with 256-bit key length
- File names get encrypted
- Folder structure gets obfuscated
- Use as many vaults in your Dropbox as you want, each having individual passwords
- One thousand commits for the security of your data!! 🎉
- 256-bit keys (unlimited strength policy bundled with native binaries)
- Scrypt key derivation
- Cryptographically secure random numbers for salts, IVs and the masterkey of course
- Sensitive data is wiped from the heap asap
- Lightweight: Complexity kills security
- HMAC over file contents to recognize changed ciphertext before decryption
- I/O operations are transactional and atomic, if the filesystems support it
- Each file contains all information needed for decryption (except for the key of course), no common metadata means no SPOF
Changelog v1.6 alpha1
New Vault Format
With version 1.6.0, we introduce the new vault format 8. Already existing vaults must be migrated before they can be used. Newly created vaults will already be in vault format 8. As always, the migration can be done with Cryptomator.
For more info about the new format, see cryptomator/cryptofs#95 for in-depth details.
