StrongKey CryptoCabinet - from StrongAuth, Inc.
This is the 2.0 release of the StrongKey CryptoCabinet (SKCC),
a web-application that allows you to encrypt files and store
them in public or private clouds. This build (123) makes minor
changes to adapt to the modified webservice APO of SKCE Build 123.
What makes the SKCC special from other cloud-encryption software?
- It stores files on AWS S3, Microsoft Azure or Eucalyptus Walrus
based cloud-storage - you can choose which cloud at encrypt-time;
- It uses the StrongKey CryptoEngine (sourceforge.net/projects/skce)
to escrow keys in an on-premises, centralized key-management
system (StrongAuth KeyAppliance);
- It allows specifying who can decrypt the file(s) from LDAP groups -
either Micorsoft AD or other LDAP Directories;
- Since the encrypted-file's metadata contains authorization information
for decryption, it digitally signs encrypted-file metadata to ensure
the file hasn't been tampered with after encryption - the signing key
can be on a FIPS 140-2 certified hardware security module, if desired,
or a software-based JCEKS keystore;
- It is FIDO U2F-enabled. You can register your FIDO U2F token with
the application and use it strongly-authenticate to the web-app. It
uses our open-source FIDO Certified U2F server (see URL above);
- It can use FIDO U2F "authorization" from a user's hardware Token
before decrypting files, for stronger security; and
The SHA256 digests of the files are:
The software is configured to work with our DEMO KeyAppliance on
the internet. The generated symmetric keys are sent there for
storage and retrieval. Please DO NOT attempt to use the DEMO
machine for PRODUCTION use - there are no guarantees around the
availability of the DEMO appliance - it exists purely to showcase
the capabilities of our products and to allow you to play with
the SKCE to try it out. If and when you decide to use the SKCE and
or SKCC in your production applications, you must either have your
own KeyAppliances, or build your own key-management solution to
use with the SKCE (we, obviously, hope that you'll buy our appliance
and support us so we can bring more cool features to you in the
appliance and the SKCE/SKCC).
Download the binaries, source and give it a spin. Check out the
wiki on this site for details on how to install the SKCE/SKCC. You
can also test this application at https://fidodemo.strongauth.com/skcc
to see how it works; if you have a FIDO U2F Token, check out the
