A clever thief will peruse all your files looking for anything that can be monetized, from credit card details to bank account passwords. When you’ve encrypted your sensitive files, a thief (or data-stealing Trojan) can’t get at that sensitive data. Steganos Safe makes creating secure, encrypted containers for your sensitive files simple, and it offers some uncommon advanced features. For $34.95, you can install Steganos Safe on up to five PCs. You only pay again if you want to buy a newer version. Folder Lock and Crypto Forge cost about five dollars more, while Cypherix PE and Crypto Expert go for $45 and $59.95, respectively. These are also one-time prices, but they just give you a single installation. The five-license package that Steganos offers is a distinct bargain. Throughout history, kings, queens, and generals have needed to communicate their plans in secret, and their enemies have toiled mightily trying to crack their secret communication systems. A cipher that simply replaces every letter with a different letter or symbol is easy enough to crack based on letter frequency, so old-time cryptographers needed something stronger. France's Louis XIV used a system called The Great Cipher, which held out for 200 years before anyone cracked it. Father-son team Antoine and Bonaventure Rossignol conceived the idea of encoding syllables rather than letters and letting multiple code numbers represent the same syllable. They also included nulls, numbers that contributed nothing to the cipher. And the use of syllables from the French put yet another obstacle in the way of foreign code breakers. But even this long-unbroken cipher pales in comparison with modern encryption technology. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), the US government's official standard, runs blocks of data through multiple transformations, typically using a 256-bit key. Bruce Schneier's Blowfish algorithm should be even tougher to crack, as it uses a 448-byte key. Whatever the size of the key, you must transmit it to the recipient somehow, and that process is the weakest point in the system. If your enemy obtains the key, whatever its size, you lose. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) cryptography has no such weakness. Each user has two keys, a public key that's visible to anybody and a private key that nobody else has. If I encrypt a file with your public key, you can decrypt it with your private key. Conversely, if I encrypt a file with my private key, the fact that you can decrypt it with my public key proves it came from me with no tampering—a digital signature. Step one is to create a My Steganos account online and register the key you received on purchasing the product. When you launch the installer, you supply your My Steganos credentials to activate the key. The Steganos encryption utility's installation is quick and simple. Once finished, it shows you a simple main window that has three buttons at top, one to create a new safe, one to open a hidden safe, and one to invoke the secure deletion File Shredder. In this context, a safe is just the name for an encrypted container. If you’ve created any local safes, they’ll show up as panels within the main window. The default Modern user interface uses stylized icons with a light color scheme; you can switch it to medium or dark. There’s also a Classic user interface that changes out the icons for near-photographic pictures of safe, shredder, and so on. Screenshots in this article use a variety of interface selections. When a safe is open, it looks and acts precisely like a disk drive. You can move files into and out of it, create new documents, edit documents in place, and so on. But once you close the safe, its contents become totally inaccessible. Nobody can unlock it without the password—not even Steganos. Most encryption tools that use the encrypted container model work like Steganos, meaning an open container looks just like any other disk drive. You can only copy files the locker; getting back a plaintext version requires an export operation. On the plus side, Nord Locker has a secure sharing system built right in. Like Editors' Choice tools Certain Safe, Ax Crypt Premium, and Folder Lock, Steganos uses AES for all encryption. However, it cranks the key size up from the usual 256 bits to 384 bits. Crypto Expert and Crypto Forge offer four different algorithms, and Advanced Encryption Package goes over the top with 17 choices. Few users have the knowledge to make an informed choice of algorithm, so I see no problem sticking with AES. At the top left corner of the main window is an icon whose tooltip says, "AES-NI active - for significantly speedier safe creation." This refers to a set of New Instructions (NI) in Intel processors, aimed specifically at speeding AES encryption by doing more in hardware. If your PC is remotely modern, it probably has AES-NI, which Steganos can use to speed encryption and decryption. You can’t do anything with that icon; it’s just an encouraging reminder that you’ve got enhanced encryption speed. When you close a safe, Steganos displays an advisory suggesting that you make a backup of your safe, with an icon link to create a backup that you can store on removable media or in the cloud. That same advisory touts the wisdom of shredding file originals after copying them into the safe, with a link to the shredder. You can turn off this notification once you’ve internalized its advice. In addition to the basic safe, Steganos can optionally create portable safes, partition safes, and cloud safes. The process of creating a new safe for storing your sensitive documents is simple, with a wizard that walks you through the steps. The wizard starts by asking a few questions to determine what kind of safe you want to create. A local safe that encrypts data on the computer you're using (or a network drive) is the simplest. You start by assigning a name and drive letter to the safe—the program's main window displays the name. By default, Steganos creates the file representing your safe in a subfolder of the Documents folder, but you can override that default to put it wherever you want, including on a network drive. Next, you define the safe's capacity, from a minimum of 2MB to a maximum that depends on your operating system. Unlike Cypherix Cryptainer PE, Crypto Expert, and many others, with Steganos the initial capacity doesn't have to be a hard limit. You can create a safe whose size grows dynamically. If the safe is small enough, you'll see a note saying it may be hidden in an audio or video file; more about that later. While you must set a maximum size at creation, it only uses as much space as its current content requires. A newly created Cypherix volume requires formatting. With Steganos and most others, the safe is ready for use immediately. If you've created a master password for Steganos Password Manager, the password dialog should look familiar. If you wish, you can define the password by clicking a sequence of pictures or symbols rather than typing it. This Pic Pass feature is cute, but it doesn't produce a strong password. Just create a strong password and record it in your password manager. There’s also an option to generate a random password. Steganos goes farther than most, using your random mouse movements to seed the random generator. If you go for a generated password, you To foil any possibility of password capture by a keylogger, you can enter the password using a virtual keyboard. Folder Lock and Advanced Encryption Package also offer a virtual keyboard. Those enjoying a high degree of paranoia can set Steganos Safe to scramble key locations on each use and to suppress visual keypress cues. New since my last review, there’s an option to create a separate emergency password. The idea is that you deposit the emergency password with a trusted third party who can use it to open the safe in read-only mode. If you wish, you can store the password on a removable drive, making that drive effectively the safe's key. By default, a safe opened in this way closes automatically when you remove the key. In itself, this isn't two-factor authentication, as you can unlock the safe using either the key or the password, but it's certainly convenient. In a similar situation, you can configure Crypto Expert to require both the master password and the USB key. Starting a few years ago with version 19, Steganos offers actual two-factor authentication. You can use any authentication app that supports the standard Time-based One Time Password (TOTP) algorithm. Google Authenticator is a well-known example, but there are plenty of others. To link the app with your safe, you snap a QR code displayed by Steganos, and enter the code that your app returns. Now unlocking the safe requires both your master password and the ever-changing TOTP code.
