Xecrets Cli

Powerful Cryptographic Command Line Toolbox

Xecrets Cli is a powerful open source cryptographic command line toolbox available for macOS, Linux and Windows. File encryption is compatible with AxCrypt[2], in fact it is based on the exact same code, but does not have a graphical user interface as it's been re-engineered into a pure command line tool. For developers and devops it's a perfect complement to Xecrets Ez and AxCrypt[2]. Use cases include automated secure backups to the cloud without the risk of exposing passwords on the server, secure computer to computer file transfer, encrypted file distribution to users who opens the files using the simple desktop app and so much more!
