Manually Encrypt Files

You may encrypt files for security.

Encrypt a File

To encrypt a file, open the terminal and use

cd directory
bcrypt -c filename

After encryption, it will be renamed to filename.bfe.

Decrypt a File

To decrypt a file, use

cd directory
bcrypt -c filename.bfe

If You Have More than One File

If you have more than one file, it is ideal to compress them into a .tgz file first (there are other options).

To do this use

tar -cvzf name.tgz files-or-directories

This may now be made into an encrypted file, using the method above.

After decrypting it, extract it using

tar -xvf name.tgz
Print/export
