Fort - Cryptography Extension for Windows 2.2
Fort takes security seriously and uses AES with 256bit keys. On decryption Fort checks that the data is not tampered in any way and informs if data tampering is detected. For each file, Fort generates a random initialization vector that is used only once. Similarly, for keys a random one time salt is generated by Fort.

Fort is free, easy to use and easy to install. Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x and Windows 10 are supported, both 32bit and 64bit versions. After installing Fort, simply right click a file and select "Encrypt". If the file is already encrypted with Fort, you can double click the file to decrypt it.

Cryptography and data encryption is important. In todays world we are connected all the time. We put our files on different cloud services where they are basically available for the companies running those services, intelligence agencies, and crackers. There are many "free" services in which the only way to pay is with your privacy. One might think that "I have nothing to hide". That's not the point. The point is that privacy is a basic human right.

As Bruce Schneier said, "Privacy isn't about hiding something. It's about being able to control how we present ourselves to the world. It's about maintaining a public face while at the same time being permitted private thoughts and actions. It's about personal dignity."

Fort concentrates on encrypting individual files so they can be safely put into a cloud service or similar. Even if you just have sensitive files and data in your laptop locally, what if it gets stolen? Surely you do not want criminals to be able to use the data.

Whether you're a journalist, a whistle blower, an activist or someone who just have private data, you will find Fort useful.
