Subject description: a multiplatform file encryption software
 

AES Crypt is a file encryption software available on several operating systems that uses the industry standard Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to easily and securely encrypt files.

Look for Installing on Linux (GUI) :
https://www.aescrypt.com/documentation/AES%20Crypt%20User%20Guide.pdf

Downloading GUI for linux 32 and 64-bit :
https://www.aescrypt.com/download/

Using a powerful 256-bit encryption algorithm, AES Crypt can safely secure your most sensitive files.

AES Crypt is completely free open source software.

For command line options :
https://www.aescrypt.com/linux_aes_crypt.html

Major points :
the program to call is aescrypt-gui and that it must be called via the context-menu of a file manager application like Nautilus, Dolphin, Thunar and the like.

Once extracted, make it executable :
chmod +x AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86-Install

Then, click on it, and follow instructions to set it up (just as easy as installing a Windows executable).

Once it is installed, you can do a test :
cat> test.txt

Via the context menu, open with : aescrypt-gui.
A window appears. You enter your password and repeat.

Look for test.txt.aes

To decrypt your file, repeat action above, via the context menu

Using cli, you would do :
aescrypt -e -p 123 test.txt

Remember that you can use history to see past command lines, so it not secure to write -p 123 (as your password), but if you encrypt a file to send it to an email address, it does not matter.
