#TIL : Encrypt and decrypt file using openssl command line
Encrypt and decrypt file using openssl command line
You can encrypt and decrypt the file using openssl command line. Somehow you will need to encrypt your important file with a secret key.
openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -in [input_file] -out [output_file]
Then Enter 2 times your secret key (this should be hard to guess and don’t loose it)
openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -d -in [input_file] > [output_file]
Then enter your secret key to decrypt the content !
Notice : should use a 10-char length secret with alpha nums and special characters
