    The problem with self-extracting files (which are usuallyxxxxx.exe) is that most email programs by default won’t let you send/attach them because of the fear of viruses. So you then have to put it into a .zip file or rename the suffix to something like .docx and then the recipient has to either unzip the file or rename it back to .exe. Rather defeats the point of self-extracting files.

    Bonjour,
    J’utilise déjà un logiciel de cryptage que tous mes correspondants habituels possèdent. C’est tout à fait transparent pour chacun d’eux puisqu’ils n’ont besoin que de connaître la clé que je leur fournis.
    En revanche, cet outil pourrait être très intéressant à condition que n’importe quel destinataire ne puisse pas lire le fichier puisque le programme est inclus dans l’envoi. On n’est donc pas à l’abri d’un “détournement” de mail ce qui est courant aujourd’hui. Alors, où est la sécurité? Mais peut être que je n’ai pas bien compris le commentaire qui accompagnait ce produit. Pour ma part, je n’utiliserait pas.
    Cordialement!

    [ @Allan Brunner] True, but there is a workaround. Silver Key can automatically send the encrypted file to a Web storage (GoogleDrive, OneDrive, Dropbox) and return the download link. You send the link, not the file itself. Of course, the option of sending encrypted file is also available.

    [@GAMISGAB] The decryption program is included, but the key is not so security is still there. The recipient simply does not need to install it.
