Subject description: GUI wrapper for Tomb A file encryption tool
 

Tomb is a free and open source file encryption tool to protect your secret files in GNU/Linux operating systems. It allows the users to create a encrypted storage (a folder) in the file system and save the important data in it. The encrypted storage can be opened and closed using their associated keyfiles, which are also protected by a password chosen by the user. For the sake of security, you can save the keyfiles on a separate medium, say for example an USB drive or a CD/DVD. The encrypted folders are called “tombs”. You can create any number of tombs in your hard drive as long as it has enough free space. A tomb can only opened if you both have the keyfile and the password.

Instructions are for Dog users, involving apt.

Create a file with geany :
#geany /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky-repo.list

Then add these lines :

deb https://sparkylinux.org/repo stable main
deb-src https://sparkylinux.org/repo stable main
deb https://sparkylinux.org/repo testing main
deb-src https://sparkylinux.org/repo testing main

Save and close.

Public key :
#apt install sparky-keyring
or
#wget -O - https://sparkylinux.org/repo/sparkylinux.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

#apt update

Then you can install gtomb.

I have it installed on Stretchdog. For portability, use a fresh install, and make a sfs bundle out of it.
