age is a simple, modern and secure file encryption tool, format, and Go library. It features small explicit keys, no config options, and UNIX-style composability. It has support for public/private key pairs and passwords, with multiple recipients. An extremely simple CLI that composes well with UNIX pipes, and that works well as a backend for other programs. A good seekable streaming encryption scheme based on modern chunked AEADs, reusable as a general encryption format.
