OpenPuff 4.00

Advanced Steganography & Watermarking
OpenPuff is a handy application that allows you to hide data into encrypted files in order to send it to other users. The program can be useful for the users that want to send confidential information without being noticed.

The program uses the principles of steganography in order to hide the information into regular files such as images, audio or video files. The carrier files can be transmitted by using emails, removable devices or other storage devices without arousing suspicion about the concealed message. This method aims to protect both the message and the persons that are exchanging the messages.

You can use the application to conceal text files, images or other files with a maximum size of 256 MB. However, the size of the message greatly influences the number of carriers that need to be used. For instance, in order to send a short text file you need about three images as message carriers. For bigger files you need more carriers or bigger carriers that cannot be easily send by emails.

When you are sending a file you can encrypt the information by using up to three passwords and by setting the order of the carriers. The recipient needs to have all the passwords and to know the exact order of the files. If only one item is missing the information cannot be recovered.

This application can also be used from a removable device, without installing the application or leaving traces in the computer's registry. The interface is easy to use and displays the steps required to encrypt the files.

OpenPuff is lightweight and can help you send encrypted messages to your friends or business partners. It can provide more discretion than a conventional file encryption program by hiding the data into regular files rather them using a specific extension.
