Secure file encryption and data access
A simple utility for encrypting/decrypting text files. It can be used for securely using applicative credentials.
- a Command Line tool for user-driven key generation and data encryption
- a Jewels Class for application-driven file decryption
Encryption is performed using AES256 in EAX Mode.
> pip install jewels
Generate a key file to safely store on server:
> jewels-cli keygen /etc/mykey
Encrypt a text file:
> jewels-cli encrypt plaintext [--dest dest-dir] /etc/mykey
Encrypt recursively all text files into a folder:
> jewels-cli encrypt -r src-dir [--dest dest-dir] /etc/mykey
Inside your code, access data from an encrypted file:
from jewels import Jewels jewel = Jewels('/etc/mykey') data = jewel.decrypt('filename')
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
