"Text editor with built-in password encryption"NotebookPEA is an open source password-encryption tool with a built-in text editor, that handles texts in Rich Text Format. The program provides editing functions like cut, copy, paste, undo, redo and some styling functionality. Besides Nextcloud and Owncloud, various cloud providers are supported.
Thanks to the embedded editor, the unencrypted text must be never stored on the hard disk, instead it is kept only in the random access memory (real-time encryption). Even if the computer crashes, the confidentiality of the texts is not at risk.
Several texts can be managed at the same time, not displaying texts remain encrypted in RAM.
The authenticated encryption mode (EAX) achieves both confidentiality and integrity of the text. The most serious weakness of password encryption programs, the vulnerability to custom-hardware attacks are countered by the memory-hard key derivation functions Catena-Dragonfly or Argon2. The default cipher is Threefish, the default hash function is Blake2b, but other algorithms are available such as the ciphers AES and the hash functions SHA-3.
The program provides a virtual keyboard to protect against key loggers, a proactive password-strength meter to give feedback while typing a new password, tables of characters to enlarge the character set and an internal pool of entropy to improve the random number generator.
NotebookPEA requires the Java Runtime Environment that is already installed on most systems. No further installation is required.
NotebookPEA is a Password Encrypting Archive (PEA), produced by the PeaFactory: It is small (about 2 MiB), round (standalone application) and green.
Requirements: Java Runtime Environment
