File Protect System (FPS) is a semi-professional application for files and folders encryption. The application includes a module for exchanging encrypted mail messages using a public Microsoft Outlook account FPS provides the user the option of choosing an encryption algorithm. Encryption can be done using a password or a digital objects (images). Encrypted files can be stored on the local disk, on a server, or on external storage. File Protect System can convert any computer with an Windows operating system installed to extremely powerful cipher machine as used by special services and government agencies. The application has a very wide range of options to ensure the information protection. What distinguishes the application from all the similar is that the user can encrypt different files with one password, but with a different algorithm. Another important advantage is the ability to package files and folders. One package can combine files from different devices. FPS allows professional protection of personal data without requiring specialized knowledge. The interface is easy to use and looks very much like File Explorer The application includes the following standard encryption algorithms: Blowfish Haval (256 bit, 5 passes) CAST-128 (CAST-5) CAST-256 (CAST-6) Information Concealment Engine (ICE) Information Concealment Engine 2 (ICE-2) ICE Encrypt MISTY-1 (Mitsubishi Improved Security Technology) Ron’s Code 2 or Rivest’s Cipher 2 (RC-2) Ron’s Code 4 or Rivest’s Cipher 4 (RC-4) Ron’s Code 5 or Rivest’s Cipher 5 (RC-5) Ron’s Code 6 or Rivest’s Cipher 6 (RC-6) Serpent Tiny Encryption Algorithm (TEA) Twofish
Practically File Protect System – Standard Edition (FPS-SE) is a hybrid system using elements of object-related protection. FPS-SE is a transitory project towards the contemporary forms of conversion for the information flows, as the abstract-matrix or volume-related protection. In the basic version of the product,a model offered by Gilbert Verman and Joseph Mauborgne is used, but the random numbers are replaced with ?information objects”, which simplifies the process of formation of the protection key. The use of information objects allows the increasing of the level of abstraction. In this way there is no need for a random character of the key used. Practically this is a hybrid system using elements of object-related protection.
