Security :: Setup Vi To Automatically Encrypt/decrypt .pgp And .asc Files

Dec 17, 2010

I'm trying to setup vi to automatically encrypt/decrypt .pgp and .asc files. The encryption part works. If I "vi testfile.gpg" it will auto encrypt it on save.

However when I try and vi the encrypted file it does not prompt me for my pass phrase. I just get this:


Here's what I have in my ~/.vimrc file.


This is on gentoo linux if it makes any difference.

Ubuntu Security :: Small Portable Encrypt/decrypt Programme ?

Mar 31, 2011

I was wondering if any free, small, portable, cross platform programme exists for encrypting/decrpyitng simple txt files?

I know a couple of small ones for windows systems (nosee, dscrypt) but i wonder if there is any i could use on both linux and windows OS. the idea is to be able to carry it on USB key and the programme (or probably there will have to be 2 versions of it) would run either on windows or linux os and i could decrypt and encrypt the file if i needed to. no matter on what system i plug the USB key to.

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypt Files Using The Keys - Generate ?

Sep 8, 2010

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04. I love the passwords and keys application, but was somewhat surprised at the lack of a context menu in gnome to encrypt a file.

In general, I cannot find how to encrypt files using the keys I generate. Maybe I'm missing something? Probably, I just thought since Ubuntu comes with OOB key generation it would have OOB encryption capabilities.

I've read about seahorse and other ways to ADD encryption, I'm just wondering if ubuntu does it natively. It'd be a good idea to add to brainstorms, right click and encrypt.

Ubuntu Security :: Backup And Encrypt Using GPG

Jan 20, 2010

I'm currently writing a simple script which uses luckyBackup to backup my /home directory to /tmp. I then want to tar it, encrypt it with gpg and move it onto a usb stick. My question is that suppose my hard disk died and I needed to restore from this USB backup, would I still be able to decrypt the file given that I would have lost gpg keys etc when the disk died? (I would still know the passphrase though). Should I be backing up gpg files separately?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypt A USB Stick Partition?

Oct 28, 2010

I'm trying to think of the best way to encrypt a partition on my flash drive.

I plan on storing ssh/pgp keys on it for use on different computers (including school computers, where I won't have administrative access).

TrueCrypt is going to require admin access to decrypt and mount the partition, I think, so that's out.

Are there any other methods you all would recommend?
