I haven't looked into any kind of encryption in a long time, so this may not be what you're looking for, but I used to use crypt
(a built-in *nix command). It encrypts and requires a password. I used to use it with vi
, by invoking vi
with the -x
Have a look and see if it's what you're after:
And, a little *nix historical tidbit.
Back in the '80s when I was upgrading the OS at work, we had to prove to SCO that we were in the United States before they'd let us have crypt
. I still remember receiving its diskette and man sheets separately, a little while after receiving the rest of the upgrade.
