  1. GnuPG: possible to scrumble filenames and encrypt the whole content of folders with subfolders

    Hi!

    is it possible with GnuPG to scrumble filenames(making the filenames
    meaningless)and encrypt the whole content of folders with subfolders?
    (if not only the filenames, but also the foldernames could be made
    "meaningless" even better)


    What is the command for that operation ?


    Thank`s for any help/tip!

    Janeth

    No. You could put them into an archive and then encrypt that with gnupg. Or
    you could use some form of filesystem encryption, pgpdisk on windows or
    aesloopback on linux.

    Sure. All filenames are embedded inside the encrypted message, so you
    can rename as you like.

    To encrypt:
    gpg --output random-gibberish --encrypt therealfile

    To decrypt:
    gpg --use-embedded-filename --decrypt random-gibberish

    $ ls plansforworlddomination/
    planforworlddomination.tex mapofbunkers.png
    secretweapons.xml
    $ tar cf deardiary plansforworlddomination/
    $ gpg -es deardiary

    resulting file: deardiary.gpg

    You might also want to look at the gpg --throw-keyid option (so it
    can't be proven that you are the "recipient" and the program srm (to
    wipe files securely).

    You could always GPG a tarball. That ought to do it.
