ArchiCrypt Live offers real-time encryption and protection for sensitive private or business data. It lets
you encrypt all file types on your PC, laptop or network. That way ONLY YOU will be able to ACCESS your confidential
information. Unauthorized access is effectively prevented.
ArchiCrypt Live uses the hash functions SHA-1 (Secure Hash Algorithm 1) with a length of 160 bit and SHA-512 which
creates a 256 bit cryptographically secure hash sum. ArchiCrypt Live uses such hash functions for different purposes.
First for processing the random data that were collected during the generation of passwords or keyfiles. Second for
identifying passwords and for computing keys from passwords.
ArchiCrypt Live only stores decrypted files temporarily in your PC's RAM (memory). It never saves, not even temporarily,
any decrypted data to a disk. Your data remains encrypted even while the volume is mounted as a drive. So not even in the
event of a power failure will decrypted data remain on your hard disk.

- Real-time Encryption
Encrypting sensitive data used to be difficult. ArchiCrypt Live makes data protection simple. ArchiCrypt stores your
sensitive data in so called "volumes". Those volumes are single files (file extension is .acl) that contain all the
files you placed in the volume. Since your secret data is encrypted and stored in one file it can be easily stored to
any data carrier (e.g. hard disks, CDs, DVDs, USB sticks etc.).
- Seamless Integration in Windows
To access the secret data in your ArchiCrypt Live volume you need to "mount" ("open" and "load" are used synonymously)
the volume. This means ArchiCrypt Live will open the volume, once you have entered the correct password, and make it
available on your PC as an extra drive. The opened volume is now an "ArchiCrypt Live drive".
- Huge Volumes
ArchiCrypt offers up to 8 virtual drives (ArchiCrypt Live "drives"). Each can be 256 gigabyte in size. These virtual
drives integrate seamlessly in your existing Windows environment. Everything saved to those volumes is stored absolutely
safely even after a power failure. Volumes on USB sticks, CDs or DVDs can be used easily without copying the files
first. Don't worry if you lose a CD or DVD. Without the password the encrypted data on the disk will be completely
useless for the finder.
- Encrypting Partitions
ArchiCrypt Live can encrypt entire partitions (or devices such as memory cards, USB sticks, external hard disks) if
desired. Encryption will then be again faster when compared to encryption in volumes. Also deleting the volume by
accident is effectively prevented, when the whole partition is encrypted.
A secret-container is an area within your ArchiCrypt volume, that can only be accessed with a special password/key. You
can think of a secret-container as an invisible safe inside of another safe.
ArchiCrypt offers unique "camouflage-files". These volumes are called "camouflage" files, because they hide a volume
holding secret data inside of any inconspicuous, normal file (i.e. "carrier file"). You can also say your ArchiCrypt
volume is "embedded" in the carrierfile. However a regular user will only see the normal file (and it's content), but
not the secret volume. Those files can be fully functional video or picture files or even application files.
- Mobile Data Safes
As the name indicates mobile data safes can be used to transport your secret data and access the data on any other PC.
Mobile data safes contain your secret data and an application that can load the secret data. You, or the recipient of
the mobile data safe, will not need to have a special ArchiCrypt Live license on the PC on which you access the
contents of the mobile data safe. How does it work? Similar to the technology used in camouflage-files, ArchiCrypt
Live will embed a container holding your secret data in an application. This application can run on Windows Systems
(2000, XP, 2003, Vista (64 bit)) and offer full read/write access to the volume.
- Public Key and Certificates
ArchiCrypt integrates public key infrastructure (PKI) procedures. PKI in ArchiCrypt lets you sign your volumes. This
way you can exchange volumes with other users without prior contact by using authentication through public and private
key. To do this ArchiCrypt Live creates a X.509 certificate with key lengths of up to 2048 bit (RSA) Of course you can
also use 3rd party certificates.
- Password Generation and Evaluation
ArchiCrypt Live will generate passwords for you! You simply chose how strong you want the password to be and the
password generator will create the password for you. Alternatively you can enter passwords manually. Then, based on
strictly scientific criteria, ArchiCrypt Live will determine the strength of the password as you type.
Using the ArchiCrypt Card, a specially designed SmartCard, you gain maximum comfort and maximum protection. The
ArchiCrypt Card is compatible with all PC/SC readers.
Volumes can be opened automatically once the ArchiCrypt Card is inserted, and closed once the card is removed. Secret
keys can be generated right on the ArchiCrypt Card using a real hardware random number generator. The exchange of data
between ArchiCrypt Live and the SmartCard reader is encrypted.
