Goz is a tool to cypher/decyper files in place.

AES256 is the algorithm election for this implementation.

The binary is statically linked, no OS dependencies.

How to use

Encrypt all files inside a directory (recursive):

goz --dir ./mydata/

Decrypt all files inside a directory (recursive):

goz --dir ./mydata/ --open

To operate with a single file use --file instead of --dir.
