Looking for a way to store encrypted (password protected) notes? If so, then take a look at fSekrit.
There is nothing fancy about fSekrit other than it is a program that is designed to store sensitive information in a text based note file. For example, I use this program at work to store various login codes to a door security system which I am tasked with monitoring. Instead of trying to remember all of the codes, I simply entered them into fSekrit, set a password, and I’m good to go. I only have to remember the one password. This program has worked without fail for me and is so small it can be carried on your flash drive. As a matter of fact, it is only 50K+ in program size plus the size of your encrypted text.
The easiest way to learn and use fSekrit is to simply run fSekrit, enter some text and then hit the close button for the fSekrit window. At this point you will be prompted to save your note to file.
The file name that you give it will be saved as an executable. For example, I saved the note as “Rick”… When I saved the note I was then prompted to enter a passphrase (or password), then hit “OK” after the passphrase as been entered two times. As indicated, do not forget the password.
The next time I want to pull the note up called “Rick”, I simply click on the “Rick” file, enter my passphrase and voila’ my note is once again available for viewing and editing.
fSekrit is a small application for keeping securely encrypted notes. These notes are truly stand-alone; the editor program and your note are merged together into a tiny self-contained program file, bypassing the need to install a special application to view your data. This makes fSekrit ideal for keeping encrypted notes on, for example, USB flash drives.
fSekrit uses very strong encryption to ensure that your data is never at risk. Rather than using hocus-pocus home-brewed algorithms, fSekrit uses the standard, military grade, peer-reviewed AES/Rijndael in CBC mode, with a 256-bit keysize.
fSekrit runs across the entire windows range: 9x/NT/2K/XP/Vista/Win7, 32-bit as well as 64-bit x86 editions.
