Shared Crypto System

Shared Crypto System gives the user option to effectively transparently encrypt files on a shared network filesystem, without directly knowing which communication partner will open the file, without needing to share a keypair. It uses Blowfish encryption and one "key" (the passphrase) to decrypt the files. This prevents the hassle of sharing lots of keys and choosing which key to use. It also has an option to recode using a new "key", if for some reason the old key is no longer trusted.

    Release Notes: This release adds options to work with wildcards, both in store and recode. This makes it possible to batch-process your files. This option does not work for decoding to prevent decoding too much at one time. Checking for Vim backup files is also added. There are more strict sanity checks on several files.

      Release Notes: This release adds space-handling in filenames. Logging when generating a key has been modified. It writes a warning instead of storing a file directly.
