Cloud security is the burning issue for the last couple of years. In view of this, the necessity to encrypt files before uploading to cloud by the means of specialized apps seems to be a good solution. However, when choosing cloud encryption software don’t forget to ask such questions as “What standards does it use for data encryption?” and “How does it encrypt and decrypt files?” For your convenience and for deeper understanding of encryption aspects of CloudMounter we have prepared the following article.
Encryption Standard Used in CloudMounter
CloudMounter uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit key length to make sure that only people with the password can access all your data stored in your beloved cloud storages as well as remote servers. Even if someone somehow got the control over your machine where all your login information was stored, all the data will be totally protected due to cloud data encryption made by CloudMounter. With the help of CloudMounter encryption in cloud computing can be done easily and with minimal effort.
How CloudMounter Encrypts and Decrypts Files
Encryption can be turned on either when you first launch CloudMounter or whenever you need it in the software preferences.
If you do not wish to have a global encryption, it is also possible to enable encryption for cloud storage or directory separately. All you need to do is to choose “Encrypt” option from the context menu and after that create and submit the password. As an option you can add this password to the Keychain.
Use the “Lock” option from the context menu, to mask encrypted data from the encrypted directory on your computer. You can always unravel the information by using “Unlock” option from the same context menu.
If you do not wish to have particular cloud storage encryption, you can always disable encryption in the software preferences. Simply choose “Decrypt” option from the context menu, enter the password for this directory and submit your actions.
Which Cryptographic Libraries are Used in CloudMounter
Cloudmounter uses Apple’s Common Crypto library that supports symmetric encryption, hash-based message authentication codes, and digests.
Just admit, that knowing that all your files are encrypted and no one could obtain your personal information you can sleep more peacefully and don’t worry about being compromised. CloudMounter is the perfect solution to strength you privacy.
