Projects / Krypt


Krypt is a simple application that sits in the system tray and provides easy access to the list of volumes encrypted with LUKS. It is possible to quickly decrypt, encrypt back, mount, and umount such devices. It also monitors HAL activity, and responds by showing a pop-up with password prompt. When the password is provided, KDE's media manager kicks in and does its job. Passwords for volumes can be stored either in a configuration file or in KDE Wallet.
