I have a need to encrypt a folder on XP home edition that can also be opened by me on XP Professional. That sounds strange, but I have a particular folder that includes all my job files that I'm having to access both at work (on a shared computer) and at home on my own laptop, wehich I've been shuttling back and forth using a USB memory stick. I have XP Home at home and XP Professional at my job.

I know Microsoft has their Encrypting File System feature in XP Pro, but apparently it's not included in XP Home.

I am also experimenting with Dropbox, which is a syncing service that would let me maintain just one folder that updates in all these places, but again I need to include encryption to prevent coworkers from stealing my work. Hopefully there is a solution that can work in conjunction with Dropbox, since that would be the ideal solution. Then I wouldn't need to use the virus-prone memory stick.

Thanks!

A:Encrypt a folder in XP home edition

This was released by Microsoft, then withdrawn. Some of what I read attributes this to the fact that an employee can encrypt a folder such that their employer can not have access to it.

It allows you to maintain a "clean" machine, and let other people use it without worrying about what they might get into, without all the hassle of keeping your "hot" data off the computer completely.

As I understand it, the encryption is very, very good.

How do I get back the files that were in an encrypted folder in Windows XP? I went to the User I used to encrypt them (right click on folder->encrypt folder and subfolders) and undid that option, but even though the folder and subfolders are no longer listed in green color (the color of encrypted folders) the files themselves are still gone, just the folders themselves remain, but no files at all that used to be visible in those folders.

As a rule, I don't run NTFS on any of my systems and I advise against it in most situations. The reason is that I consider the additional stability and security that NTFS offers to be outweighed by the disadvantage of making it impossible, if not near impossible, to clean adware/spyware/viruses from an infected machine. But now I am presented with a new dilemma:

I have a laptop that I am using more as time progresses. It has a lot of information stored on it about my clients' user names, passwords, e-mail configurations, product keys (which they do lose, occasionally). Losing the laptop to a thief and the potential that the thief would discover the valuable and sensitive information stored on it . . . Well, I think you get the idea.

I am thinking of converting the laptop to NTFS and encrypting the many folders that contain sensitive information, thus protecting my clients from any potential damage due to loss of the laptop.

Here's the proposed scenario and conditions:
The laptop's hard disk is converted to NTFS.
Folders containing sensitive information are encrypted.
The OS on the laptop crashes and is unrecoverable.
I am forced to trash the existing OS and set up Windows 2000 or XP fresh and clean and start over again.
What must I do now to prepare for this day so that after the OS is loaded again, I can access those encrypted folders?

A:encrypt folders in xp

Encrypted File System (EFS) is not included with Windows XP Home. It's meant to be used in a corporate environment so the encryption keys can be centrally managed. If you would encrypt a folder and not back up the key (before reinstalling Windows or resetting the account password), the files would be permanently lost. No chance for recovery. EFS also does not prevent others from deleting the files. It only prevents others from opening them. NTFS file permissions would have to be used as well to prevent deletion.

The whole drive ? Sounds unreasonable, as if the friend doesn't have a real good idea of what they want & why.

I say this because MS released a program called "Private Folders" for about a week, and then withdrew it as a result of corporate concerns.

But I think you can still get it here:

It creates a password-protected file directory. You put stuff in, but it doesn't come out without a password. Seemed to work, but 2 weeks later I forgot the password so now even *I* don't know what's in there.

Worse, I can't delete it. So it just sits there, taunting me.


Given that it works, was made by MS and does everything I could think of a person would want to do, I can't imagine why a person would want to PW protect the whole drive.

How would it boot ?

I believe it is becasue when you originally encrypted the file, it used the original user account information to create the hash, etc for the encryption. When yoou reinstalled, did you recreate the user accounts with the same names as originally created?

If your computer ever becomes permanently unbootable and if you didn't back up your key with those files then Windows encrypted files will be lost. Beware of that. Accordingly people recommend True Crypt instead.

A:Don't want others see your files. Encrypt them with XP

Blade Jones makes a good point regarding NTFS encryption. It is a very valuable feature but you must understand the implications of using it. On this forum and others I have seen many cases where a user has reinstalled the OS or upgraded to a later version, only to find that important encrypted files are no longer accessible. This is a serious matter. NTFS encryption scrambles the contents of a file using a key that is a part of the user account. If that key is lost, and it will be when the OS is reinstalled., it is almost impossible to decrypt such files. Creating a new account with the same name and password will not create the same key.

It is possible to backup the encryption key before an OS reinstall but few people do so, or are even aware of the need.

With any encryption method involving a password be very sure you do not forget it! Forum rules do not permit help with lost passwords.

hi,

I have downloaded an SSH server called WinSSHD and an SSH client called Tunnelier. I'm attempting to have traffic encrypted on my home network.

The way i am attempting this is with a client to server setup, which means that traffic from laptop one is encrypted by the client which is also on laptop one, then sent to the server to be decrypted, and the server then sends that traffic to its final destination which is laptop two. The question i have is this... isn't this pointless if i have the ssh server on the same computer as the ssh client? Because then the traffic is sent to the client, encrypted, sent to the server, decrypted... all while being on my local machine! It's then tramsmitted unencrypted to the second laptop. Is that what happens? If i'm right about this, then are there any web based SSH servers which can be used instead of a local one installed on my machine? And i know a solution might be to install the server on laptop two, but this isn't how i'd like to achieve this.

Thanks for any repiles.
 

A:trying to encrypt network traffic using SSH

Only the portion of the traffic between Tunnelier and WinSSHD is encrypted. If Tunnelier and WinSSHD are on the same machine, then no external traffic is encrypted. In order to encrypt the network traffic, you need to install the SSH server on the machine you are accessing.

If you cannot do this, you need to install some crypto software on the destination machine, which crypto software needs to interoperate with the software installed on the source machine. I.e., if it's not SSH, then it needs to be something else, but whatever technology you choose, the crypto needs to be on both machines.

Using an internet server won't help you for encrypting local network traffic, unless, again, you install some software on both machines that accesses the internet server securely and passes the data through it. Such a solution will also be considerably slower than a straight LAN connection.

Hi,

it is possible. Depends on where you would like to encrypt them: locally or on the web servers.
Have you heard about PGP/GPG before?

GPG is an open source free version of PGP.
The GNU Privacy Guard - GnuPG.org

Wikipedia info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Good_Privacy
It's available for almost all platform, if you have Windows OS worth to try is GPG4Win.

In short PGP/GPG uses symmetric key cryptography.
First you have to create your own key (public and private key).
Your public key is for people who will email with you - they have to know what your public key is, because they will use it to encrypt message for you.
If you want to send encrypted message to other person then you will need their public key and your private (secret key).

It sounds complicated but in practice it isn't.
Here are some tutorial vids you will be helpful I hope:
GnuGPTutorial - YouTube

Above example is how to encrypt your email/files locally, but there are also webmails which offers this feature - they do all this work on web servers like: Countermail or HushMail - however I don't know how much they are reliable and secure since everything is hidden for end user.

I'd recommend to use PGP/GPG encryption on your own computer if you have time to learn it. It's easy in fact but needs few minutes to understand how it works.
Setting up GPG, and learning it, would be next...but you will never get all your contacts to use it. Unfortunately.

Hi, I have a curious security question...
Let's say there is a person on a shared home network, and is connected to that network via LAN, but This person does not have administrative rights over the router/ISP connection.

If that person wanted to keep their Internet activity super protected, so not even the ISP would be able to get information from the packets they send/receive from their computer, would it be possible for them to achieve this?
If so, would they use either some type of physical layer of protection between them and the router? or through software on their pc?

I know it sounds sus, but everyone has a right to privacy, so I'm not asking any questions about why they want to be this strict with their privacy.

Thanks.
 

A:Possible to encrypt packets sent from one computer through LAN?

An HTTPS connection between a computer's web browser and some server on the Internet would provide Transport Layer encryption of the packets. Anyone sniffing packets anywhere in the data path would only be able to determine the source and destination IP addresses of each packet but not the actual content.

If the person using the computer wished to hide the IP address of the server they were connecting to, they could establish an HTTPS connection to a suitable proxy server which would then, in turn, connect to the target server.

A:Unable to encrypt files using EFS

You're up a creek without a paddle man. EFS is non-trivial and you need the original Recovery Agent to access it.

Consider this scenario:

disk is EFS
user X has a password
user X account is deleted, but the data is kept
we discover, oops, we need something
recreate user X and even reuse the same original password
ACCESS DENIED results.
The encryption key is created such that it is unique to

the HD
the partition
the user
his/her password
time of day the password is created
The ONLY choice is to have created the Recovery Agent while the account was still active.

If a professional network security admin could give this a look I would be very greatful.
 

A:[F1] Encrypt and authenticate ALL traffic

Wow, that's a whole bunch of horrible.

Do you have a tunnel endpoint in mind, because some of the IP's you have in there would be required to respond with Phase1/Phase2 [and they wont]

If you're trying encrypt ALL traffic, specify a tunnel endpoint and simply tell it "IP"

What exactly are you trying to do?

Hi There,
I am using HP Z440 workstation with TPM 1.2. TPM is enbled in BIOS. I have tried to encrypt the C: drive by running manage-bde -on C: in WinPE 4.0. But it gave the below error:
ERROR: To turn on BitLocker in a pre-installation or recovery environment, a TPM must be present, enabled, and activated. If the computer has a TPM, please configure the BIOS to allow the operating system to use the TPM.
I have already enabled TPM in BIOS. I have already turned on TPM by running manage-bde -tpm -t also.
I have also taken ownership of tpm.
In BIOS there is no option to to allow the OS to use TPM. Interestingly this command works fine in normal Windows 7 professional & after reboot I can see encryption in progress also by running manage-bde -status C:
Please note that I have already added all the packages & drivers for WinPE and manage-bde -status commands are working fine. Please help me to guide on this issue.
Thanks,
Sourav

I have a WD Passport for a backup of my entire system.

I remove this HDD & put it away for safe keeping once the backup has been updated.

But now I want to encrypt this incase it falls into the wrong hands.

I would like 128 bit encryption & prefer to be able to just enter a password in & it unlocks the entire HDD when I plug it into any computer to access all files like a normal HDD.

What's the best program for this?

Thanks.
