Professional drag-and-drop website builder!

If you need to send sensitive data over the Internet you should encrypt it first. But what about the other side? The recipient will probably not like the idea of buying and learning some software just to decrypt your file. No problem here if you are using Silver Key.

Right-click the file or folder you wish to send and select the "Create EXE Parcel" command. Silver Key compresses and encrypts your data and adds a small decryptor program. Your correspondent does not need to install any decrypting program because the parcel already contains all the needed software.

If your demands are higher, you can use the Silver Key Parcel Designer to create more advanced encrypted parcels. You can add encrypted and unencrypted comments, create shortcuts on the target computer, request opening a file after decryption, and even include an uninstaller.

Please note: the download archive includes the Portable USB version as well!

Wouldn't it be easier to create password protected zip file or does Silver Kay have other advantages?

Reply   |   Comment by Brian  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Brian, depends. If your data are not especially valuable and you don't need to send them often, then zip may be an adequate solution.

What happens if your file gets intercepted?
Won't the thief be able to decrypt it just as easily as the intended recipient?

dan , No, the file can't be decrypted without the right password/key.

support,
So before sending the file I would need to inform the recipient of the password/key they would need to use, which makes sense. I didn't see that in that mentioned in the above description.
Thanks!
Dan

I have really big problems with any download that contains setup.gcd. I will never switch off any virus scanners or even disable them. I go to the web site download that copy and use the 'key' from the readme.txt file. 90% of the time it works.

Andy Bell,

"I have really big problems with any download that contains setup.gcd. I will never switch off any virus scanners or even disable them."

When the GOTD includes their wrapper [uses the .gcd file], I don't think most people have to do anything but run the GOTD setup.exe file. If you have problems, you are one of a relative few. If you run win10, the easiest solution is to do nothing, just running the included Defender rather than installing 3rd party security software, as Defender now gets top marks at av-test[.]org for example. If you do use 3rd party security software, know that not all brands interfere with the GOTD wrapper. Many [most?] major brands of security software have free trials, and a complete removal tool, so trying it out is *almost* painless. The easiest way to cure a problem with the wrapper & its .gcd files is not to have a problem at all.

Use 7-zip (https://www.7-zip.org) to create an AES-256-encrypted self-extracting executable.

Gary, So when the recipient receives the file their antivirus program flags the exe file and deletes it?

Reply   |   Comment by R Singh  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

R Singh,

Why the antivirus would do it with the 7zip- exe, and not with the exe created with today's program?

Bai Hui, exactly.

R Singh, did you not read this giveaway's feature to "Create EXE Parcel"?

Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Gary,

"Use 7-zip ... to create an AES-256-encrypted self-extracting executable."

Or WinRAR, WinZip etc. However I think many people will like the GUI & features of Silver Key more than those file compressors, where encryption is one of the things they can do, rather than their sole focus. Whichever app you want to use, it can't hurt to run a search at cvedetails[.]com for known vulnerabilities & history of vulnerabilities to help you make your decision.

Gary, I was NOT referring to the giveaway. I was ONLY referring to 7zip making an exe file. Many email etc programs delete exe files on receiving

Gary, its almost impossible to send a .exe over email. So put it in a folder and encrypt the folder with FlashCrypt. Then send the created file. On receipt, right click, Open, password, done!

Thanks for pointing out the website cvedetails[.]com! I never knew about it and had to look it up: Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures

Silver Key is something I have tried a few times over the years. But its too complicated for such a simple premise.
I use the simple and free FlashCrypt which encrypts folders and carries its extractor in the file that is created. Just double click the file and enter the password. Whatever you use there will always be a password that needs to be passed to the recipient.

Reply   |   Comment by peter  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)

Peter, Kryptelite is a free offering from the makers of Silver Key which is very similar to FlashCrypt and seems quite good. It would do the job of encrypting a file/folder to save securely or send by email. Just need to pass the password securely to the recipient.

Some email systems are known to reject files with .exe extensions. What is the remedy in that case, other than renaming the extension to something else, say .zip or .txt?

Reply   |   Comment by Basheer  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Basheer, You can upload to dropbox and etc and get a link to put in the email, just right click to get to menu of Silver key in windows explorer ;)

Reply   |   Comment by Leif Oliversen  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Basheer, there are three ways to work around that problem:

1) Send the parcel via free Web storage as suggested by Leif Oliversen. Silver Key includes uploaders for GoogleDrive, OneDrive, and Dropbox.

2) Send a non-executable (.sk) parcel, however the recipient will have to install any (including free) edition of Silver Key to unpack it.

3) Try placing the parcel into a zip archive. The recipient will have to unzip the executable file and run it as usual.

Leif Oliversen,

"You can upload to dropbox and etc and get a link to put in the email,"

Or One Drive etc... It's not just .exe files but all attachments other than PDFs & images that are often blocked by email service, plus any email is subject to being falsely blocked by spam filters. You can also use Firefox Send, which allows you to set an expiration date, max number of downloads, & required password.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

support, if one uses 3) and places the parcel into a zip archive why not just put the plain source file in the zip file encrypted with AES-256 and forget the need for any 3rd party program at all!

I note that if one applies the customer id to the installed program it states the number of seats is 10000 and update subscription expires "01 January 2099"!
really? we are entitled to free updates until then?

Also this deposits two different shortcuts onto your desktop one for the program and another for a pssword manager... in fact in the start menu folder for this product there are many differnt shortcuts for various programs which make this product feel somewhat over complicated... It will take some time to learn what is needed and what is not in every day use and what are the purpose of all the other tools... Do they really need so many different programs? couldn't the tools be pushed into a tools subfolder and only leave the necesary day to day programs shortcuts in the programs start menu folder?

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  29 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

TK, no, the conditions of this event do not include free updates.
You certainly don't need to use the advanced tools. The 'wizard' panel (the desktop icon) is all that most users need. Or just right-click the file and use the context menu.

40 Mb for encrypting a file, and sending over internet. If i recall, i have no such need in such a long time or at this point in life.
If it is encrypting alone, i use Winrar a German company that does it very well.
Mind u, u could forget the password very easily. So i don't need this for any use.
This has been offered at least 4-5 times, and i have let it pass. Not having this didn't matter in my computing experience.I'll pass.
