|Short description||Tomb is an application to manage the creation and access of encrypted storage files and related keys which both can safely be transported and hidden in a filesystem.|
|Full description||Tomb is an application to manage the creation and access of encrypted storage files: it can be operated from commandline and it can integrate with a user's graphical desktop. Tomb generates encrypted storage files to be opened and closed using their associated keys, which are also protected with a password chosen by the user. To create, open and close tombs a user will need super user rights to execute the tomb commandline utility. A tomb is like a locked folder that can be safely transported and hidden in a filesystem; it encourages users to keep their keys separatefrom tombs, for instance keeping a tomb file on your computer harddisk and its key file on a USB stick. For simplified use, the command tomb-open starts a wizard that guides users in the creation of a new tomb or, if a tomb file is specified as argument, it opens it and makes it accessible in a default location under the /media folder, starting the status tray applet (tomb-status) if a desktop is present.|
