question about porteus setting center > lock icon encryption

Post#1 by kalagh » 02 Nov 2015, 17:00

I looked around a bit, and although it was brought up a few times in some forum posts, I couldn't find any posts clearly stating what it is.

So here it goes..

What is the encryption algorithm used? Any idea about its safety?

Also, perhaps related to the previous question, is there any way to decode encrypted files on other operating systems, possibly windows?

Thank you.
