I’ve recently discovered Cryptomator and I’ve been using it in conjunction with Cyberduck to have an encrypted vault in Google Drive. I’d like to commend you for making such a fantastic piece of software completely free and open source.
In any case, I’m having an issue that I’ve not been able to solve by myself and thus I’m taking to this forum in the hopes of solving it.
One of the key benefits of using Google cloud drives is that you can easily share files with contributors or external parties simply by selecting Share, either in the web panel or directly through Cyberduck.
However, the issue is of course, since the file is encrypted and the user must have a means of decrypting it. Is there a way I could have for them to easily decrypt that single file, without having to give them access to the entire vault or having to install Cryptomator on their end, just to decrypt one file?
While researching possible solutions, I discovered this thread, in which someone had much the same issue, and attempted to follow the instructions. This seemed very promising to me and would have been able to do what I’m looking for, however my efforts were thwarted by this Sanitizer software not supporting the latest vault format (v7).
From what I understand, this would have been perfect for my use case. I could have sent my contributors a link to this one .jar file along with the vault password and they would have been able to decrypt the file, without having given them full access to the Vault or having to install Cyberduck or Cryptomator.
Thus, I’d like to ask for support for this latest vault format to be added to this tool. It appears I’m not alone in this request (Incidentally, someone mentions being able to decrypt still using a backup key file, but I was not able to do so).
Or at the very least an easy way of decrypting single files, without having to install the full version of Cryptomator to accomplish this, preferably through a small external executable, with which you could drag the encrypted file to, it would prompt for the password, and spit out the decrypted version.
Thank you very much for your attention and the continued efforts with this software.
