Hi everyone! I just saw this last night and was wondering if some of you have seen it and what your opinion is. I don't really intend to install it. Just curious.

Regarding encryption

18 Mar 2019

Posted by wa4chq in Bruno's All Things Linux
I found this today while searching info about editing an encrypted file.  I have be using "gpg".  Here's what I found:


I have spent countless hours on this quest, too: simply encrypt a text file with a passphrase with simple open+read/write access. I didn't want to deal with private/public keys nor keyrings bound to an OS login, blah, blah, blah. File encryption with passphrase only is so simple and so universal and perfect for a simple text file to hold passwords. No bloat nor complication of a database-driven solution like KeePass, etc. (which also requires data entry into multiple GUI elements rather than just typing your passwords in a searchable text file). The gold standard on Windows is Steganos LockNote. How to do it on Linux? Surprisingly very difficult to find, but...
I finally converged on the recommendation I consider best: cream. http://cream.sourceforge.net/ Cream is a facade to vim to make it more-user-friendly ... useful for other family members (I am a Linux geek at work comfortable with vi[m], but I needed something more accessible for my family).
Just enter:
"vim -x yourfile.txt"
It will be saved as encrypted with a passphrase.
You can use vim or cream at this point:
"vim yourfile.txt" or "cream yourfile.txt".
Either one will natively open "yourfile.txt" and prompt for the passphrase and transparently allow edits and re-saving as encrypted. FINALLY the quest has been completed !!!!
I think it's pretty cool.....
