Image Lock PEA 1.4

Image Lock PEA protects photos, drawings, and documents in image format with a password. Thanks to the integrated viewer the images are never stored unencrypted on the hard disk, but are held only in memory. The Image Lock PEA uses functions to derive the key from the password, that protect also against attackers with a high budget. In addition to the confidentiality, an authenticated encryption protects the integrity and authenticity of the images.
