Encryption program for files that uses Salsa20, ChaCha20 or HC-256 with a 256-bit key. The program creates an encrypted (password protected) copy of any file and the program can later be used to decrypt (restore) the original file.


  • The program can integrate with Windows which means that you can right-click on a file and choose "AS-File Crypt" in the menu. (The integration feature is activated from the File menu. This is a non-portable feature.)
  • The speed is measured during each encryption / decryption operation and the program will display the results for you when it's done.
  • This encryption program makes use of a key strengthening algorithm which delays the final encryption key for a few seconds, this increases the security.
  • The program stores an encrypted checksum of the original file, which is verified at decryption.
  • You don't need to enter the password twice, instead you can press [F12] if you want to show or hide the password.
