Gringotts stores sensitive data (passwords, credit card numbers, PINs, etc.) in an easy-to-read, easy-to-access, and most of all very secure form. It makes use of the MCrypt and MHash libraries for encryption, and uses GTK+ 2 for the user interface. It lets the user choose from among eight strong encryption algorithms (RIJNDAEL-128, RIJNDAEL-256, SERPENT, TWOFISH, CAST-256, SAFER+, LOKI97, 3DES), two hashing algorithms (SHA1, RIPEMD 160) and two compression techniques (ZLib and BZip2) with four compression ratios. Any file can be used as a password, as an alternative to the usual text string, giving additional choices.
