File protection

File protection

PRIVACY enables you to store files and folders on your hard drive in an encrypted form. To encrypt a file, select the symmetric key that must be generated in SHIPKA PCDST using PRIVACY or some other application in advance, and specify the files or folders to be encrypted.

The key to decrypt the file is selected automatically, without the user's participation.

To transfer an encrypted file or to enable someone else to read the file, you can encrypt it based on the recipient's key. In this case, the user who has installed PRIVACY and has interchanged public keys with you will be able to decrypt the file.

In doing so, it is necessary to specify the recipient's key and your key from the pair the public key from which is accessible to the recipient.
