PRACTICAL PARANOIA MACOS 10.13 UPDATE: ENCRYPT FOLDERS AND FILES FOR CROSS-PLATFORM USE WITH ZIP

Practical Paranoia macOS 10.13 Security Essentials has just released an update to chapter 17 Documents. The updated section is Encrypt Folders and Files for Cross-Platform Use With Zip.

macOS and Mac OS X have long included the ability to compress, archive, and encrypt documents folders in zip format. macOS 10.13 has removed the ability to encrypt these items in AES 256. As AES 256 is the gold-standard of encryption, we can’t just sit by and do nothing!

The section has been updated, removing the command-line instructions to encrypt zip, replacing it with using a free, drag-and-drop utility called Keka. Keka provides the easiest (and did I mention free) way to encrypt your documents and folders to military-grade standards. And since zip is an industry standard, your encrypted items may be used on Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS.

The updated chapter may be downloaded here.
