Ccrypt file encryption GUI

June 24, 2020 — BarryK

EasyOS has a GUI frontend for the 'bcrypt' file encryption utility, in the "Personal" menu category. Alfons reported that it does not work.

Yes, the Debian maintainers have disabled encryption, only allowing decryption, as they have deemed it to be a very insecure encryption method.

I have modified the script to use the 'ccrypt' utility. This will also be in the "Personal" category in the menu. The new GUI frontend is /usr/sbin/ccrypt_gui.
