CTI Text Encryption 5.3
Quickly encrypt almost any text

CTI Text Encryption is a portable text encryption tool. It's ideal for sending sensitive information via insecure channels (email, online chat, web forums), although you can also use it to save confidential data in files or elsewhere.

The program looks a little confusing initially, as it has almost no text labels or prompts. Fortunately its buttons do have tooltips, so hover the mouse over each one and you'll soon understand how it all works.

The process starts by entering the encryption passwords you'd like to use. CTI Text Encryption supports up to four, a welcome approach as it means you may not have to use garbage like "lF@,%*\jwX"; entering more memorable words like the first names of your four best friends at college (or something) will be just as hard to guess.

Next, at a minimum, type or paste text into the source box and click "Encrypt". The program uses SHA512 to hash the passwords, 256-bit AES (Rijndael) to process the text, and displays the results in the "Encrypted" box. ("Hello world" became "ZNz02G1/x+susprkZONobg==", for instance.)

You can then copy the encrypted text to the clipboard, and paste it into an email, a forum message, maybe Notepad (if you want to save it somewhere), whatever you like. A friend who also has a copy of CTI Text Encryption - and knows your passwords - should be able to read what you've said, while everyone else will be locked out.

There is one other slightly pointless feature, in the ability to set a font. This is preserved as a part of the encryption, so whoever is decrypting it will see the font you chose, as well as the text. We can't quite see why you would care about this, but if you do then it'll be good news.

Verdict:

Simple, lightweight and portable, CTI Text Encryption offers an easy way to encrypt text while you're on the move.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
