Jafe is a small application designed to keep sensitive data organized in an easy-to-use way, with heavy focus on security.
Here are some key features of "Jafe":
· Ease of use: Jafe is easy to use, because the informations are stored in a convenient tree structure, with an intuitive interface. You can add free text, accounts, and in the future small files, and everything will be stored on the same place - compressed and encrypted.
· Security: Jafe uses the best strong encription algorithms available, to guarantee that, once you save them, no one other than you will be able to access your data. It is designed with plausible deniability in mind: the produced file will look just like random data to anyone without the key to it, making it impossible to demonstrate it even contains data.
· Portability: Jafe is written in Java, fully compliant with the 1.4.2 virtual machine (and later ones, like 1.5.0). For this reason, it can be used on Linux, Windows, *BSD, Mac computers, and behaves just the same on every one of them. Moreover, it doesn't depend on any external library, and i't very small - ideal to keep it with you on an USB key.
· Freedom: Jafe is Free Software, licensed under a BSD license; full source code is available. This basically mean you can review the software as you like (to ensure it does what you expect it to do), so you can be sure there are no backdoor or weaknesses - and patch them if you do find some. Moreover, I plan to make the code compliant with the latest Free Software Java environments, like GCJ, to provide a fully Free-as-in-Free-Speech experience.
