Secret Keeper is a file encryptor written in python which encrypt your files using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). CBC Mode is used when creating the AES cipher wherein each block is chained to the previous block in the stream. FeaturesSecret Keeper has the ability to generate a random encryption key base on the user input.Secret Keeper can successfully encrypt and decrypt .txt and .docx file types.How to Install and Run in Linux Enter the following command in the terminal to download it.git clone https://github.com/Sameera-Madhushan/Secret-Keeper After downloading the program, enter the following command to navigate to the Digger directory and listing the contentscd Secret-Keeper && ls Install dependenciespip3 install -r requirements.txt Now run the script with following command.python3 Secret-Keeper.pyHow to Install and Run in Windows Download and run Python 2.7.x and Python 3.7 setup file from Python.orgIn Install Python 3.7, enable Add Python 3.6 to PATH Download and run Git setup file from Git-scm.com, choose Use Git from Windows Command Propmt.

Parrot 4.4 is now available for download. This release provides security and stability updates and is the starting point for the plan to develop an LTS edition of Parrot. Parrot 4.4 Development GoalsThe Parrot 4.4 development process involved the ideas of many people in the community, and the goal of this new update was mainly to target software developers and increase average system stability.Upgrade from a previous versionsudo parrot-upgradeorsudo apt updatesudo apt full-upgradeDebian Testing stability statusParrot is based on Debian Testing, which is now entering an important stabilization stage for new Debian 10 (buster) release, that should arrive around the second quarter of 2019. This means that Parrot is up to see a new golden age of stability and reliability, which this time is going to last very long since the team announced the Parrot Long Term Support project in the previous release note.New Golang, Rust, Vala and Mono support There is a big interest in the Parrot team to offer a comfortable environment for software developers and those pentesters who usually write or modify their tools, and even if we already support python, java, c/c++, ruby, perl, bash and php, there is a big interest in the community in other emerging programming languages like golang, rust or vala.Parrot 4.4 added for the first time full support for golang, rust, vala and mono (a FLOSS and independent .NET implementation). We believe software developers will benefit from this internal choice that required a lot of effort in order to keep the ISO files within their usual sizes.New Privacy Metapackageparrot-privacy now provides all the privacy-related applications as anonsurf, torbrowser, ricochet-im, onionshare and more.People who need stronger privacy have now a dedicated metapackage.KDE Plasma EditionThe development of the KDE Plasma edition gave very interesting results, and now Parrot 4.4 provides an awesome KDE flavor with our custom themes and settings for all our users that don’t like MATE and prefer a more advanced and feature-rich (but heavier) desktop environment.Parrot KDE includes the latest 5.13 Plasma desktop with custom configurations that proved to be very lightweight and fast with a small memory footprint, and we will continue to improve this flavor in the future.BTRFS and XFS are the new default filesystemThe new Debian-Installer was modified to use btrfs by default for root and xfs for the home filesystem. The installer does no longer create a swap partition when automatically partitioning uefi or encrypted systems, and the boot partition is large enough to host multiple kernel revisions without running out of space.Btrfs and xfs are very powerful advanced filesystems with CoW, subvolumes, snapshots and other features. While xfs is very fast on some specific workloads, btrfs has additional features like live compression and a very efficient checksuming system for file corruption detection.Btrfs was considered experimental for many years and it is still under heavy development, but its core features are now stable and production ready (but not ready for mission critical scenarios) and many companies already use it and contribute to its development, including facebook, suse, oracle and more.Download Parrot Security 4.4
Firmware updates won’t address the problem, so admins need to take other action.
Parrot 4.3 is now available for download. This release provides security and stability updates and is the starting point for the plan to develop an LTS edition of Parrot.Linux 4.18Linux was updated to the 4.18.10 version, and linux 4.19 will be released soon.Firefox 63Firefox 63 provides noticeable security and privacy features, but it is no longer available to 32bit systems, so has been switched to firefox-esr on all the unsupported architectures.Wine menuHas been fixed a bug in the parrot menu configuration that prevented several menu categories to show up.This fixed the missing wine menu bug, which is now back again.Bashrc updatesThe Parrot .bashrc file was updated, now it provides better snap support, the ll alias now shows the size in a human readable format and it does no longer overwrite some global settings as it used to do before.Java 11OpenJDK 11 is now the default java provider.AnonsurfAnonsurf received important stability upgrades and now it does not mess up the DNS configuration.New Parrot iconsThe Parrot edition of the MAIA icon theme was updated.Has been dropped many old unused icons and replaced them with newer ones.Core updatesParrot 4.3 provides the latest updates of Debian Testing and many improvements to our sandbox system, in fact, both firejail and apparmor received significant updates, and now the whole system is smoother, more secure and more reliable.Download Parrot Security 4.3
