More Info
ccrypt is a utility for encrypting and decrypting files and streams. It was designed as a replacement for the standard unix crypt utility, which is notorious for using a very weak encryption algorithm. ccrypt is based on the Rijndael cipher, which is the U.S. government's chosen candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, see http://www.nist.gov/aes/). This cipher is believed to provide very strong security.

There is an emacs pack for using ccrypt directly from within emacs:

Put the following into your .emacs file

(setq load-path (cons "/usr/pack/ccrypt-1.3-to/share/emacs/site-lisp" load-path))

(require 'jka-compr-ccrypt "jka-compr-ccrypt.el")
