Cryptonite

Cryptonite


This is a free and open-source file encryption solution based on the original EncFS code. Cryptonite is fully compatible with all EncFS features.

Mounting doesn't work on some Android 4.2 devices. We're working on a solution.

READ THIS FIRST: This application is UNDER DEVELOPMENT. Intended for EXPERIENCED ANDROID USERS ONLY. While most features don't require root, mounting EncFS volumes requires ROOT and Kernel FUSE support (found in some CyanogenMod ROMs). Downloading from, uploading to and creating EncFS volumes on your Dropbox or on your phone is supported on all devices.

@H: Don't use the rating system as your testing playground. It's highly demotivating.

OFFLINE MODE: To access an encrypted Dropbox volume when you're offline, sync the encrypted volume to a local folder with one of the many apps that provide online storage synchronization (e.g. FolderSync Lite or Dropsync). Then, mount that local volume with Cryptonite. This will only work on rooted phones that support FUSE though.

FEEDBACK: Please send a report if you experience a forced close, and send comments, suggestions, bug reports and patches to: https://github.com/neurodroid/cryptonite/issues

SECURITY: Read up on important security considerations: https://github.com/neurodroid/cryptonite/wiki/Security-Considerations

PERMISSIONS: Internet permission is required to access your Dropbox.
SD card access is required to read and write files.

FAQ: Why can't I decrypt and encrypt files on the fly?
Why can't I mount EncFS volumes on my Samsung/ Motorola / Sony device?
Why can't I access any folder on my Dropbox?
Why do I need root privileges to mount EncFS and TrueCrypt volumes?

The new version does not allow copying or moving files into a mounted volume. I cannot even create new files or folders on a mounted volume (Android 4.2.1 Jellybean)

Good stuff! I've been using this for a while on multiple devices. Being able to mount truecrypt containers on android is always nice.
