Secure encrypt a folder or decrypt a file into a folder using AES-256-CBC (like codes, business top secrets).


sudo npm install -g p3x-aes-folder --unsafe-perm=true --allow-root


Node v8.0.0 is broken (encrypt/write) - decrypt/read works, it is fixed in 8.1.0.

Breaking change v1.1

The method of using password is changed. Now, it is a bit more secure. Even if you use 2 characters, it will create a 128 characters long password. A bit more secure. To use the old versions you can decrypt it with v1.0.12-7, then encrypt with v1.1+.

Breaking change v1.2

Now the encryption uses 512 new additional rounds with AES-256. I think it will be very slow to break. Imagine AES-256 * 512. :) You can decrypt the previous versions and encrypt with the v1.2 version.

Breaking change v1.3

Additional salt included in the encrypted file. Now, you can find out your file version, so in the future, you may just use the appropriate encrypt/decrypt method. Although, same versions Major.Minor are not breaking.

Breaking change v1.5

NPM Archiver changed to v2.0, so AES Folder is changed. Please decrypt your below 1.5 verision krip file and encrypt with latest krip above 1.5.0.

Breaking change v1.6

The encryption security of the P3X AES FOLDER is increased from 512 rounds to 2048, so you can decrypt the previous version and encrypt with v1.6.
