  • GitHub repo bitwarden_rs

    Unofficial Bitwarden compatible server written in Rust, formerly known as bitwarden_rs [Moved to: https://github.com/dani-garcia/vaultwarden]

    I have done exactly the same more than a year ago. Couldn't be happier. The bitwardenrs server is extremely lightweight so it runs with almost no resources.

    Please consider bitwardenrs is a 3rd party implementation, indeed community led, so it lags several features which have been introduced by Bitwarden itself.

    See the full list of feature requests in the Rust implementation here [1], but the two things I'll miss most are Emergency Access and now this feature called Bitwarden Send.

  • GitHub repo Sup3rS3cretMes5age

    Simple to use, simple to deploy, one time self destruct messaging service, with hashicorp vault as a backend

    As a self-hosted alternative if one already has Vault (or is OK with a provided single-node installation), this[0] is great. I use it when sharing private stuff over unsecured channels regularly.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo PrivateBin

    A minimalist, open source online pastebin where the server has zero knowledge of pasted data. Data is encrypted/decrypted in the browser using 256 bits AES.

    There are number of open source projects that do the same thing such as https://privatebin.info

  • GitHub repo croc

    Easily and securely send things from one computer to another :crocodile: :package:

    croc is my favourite way of transferring files between computers I control.

    https://github.com/schollz/croc

    It's similar to magic wormhole if you've heard of that, but a bit more polished. I think for me it offers the best possible UX

  • GitHub repo syncthing-android

    Wrapper of syncthing for Android.

  • GitHub repo skynet-webportal

    A webapp that makes Skynet accessible to web browsers.

    It's decentralized. For example, the exact same service exists at https://skysend.hns.skyportal.xyz, which is operated by a completely unrelated party. Links created on one will work on the other.

    And you can run your own portal, code and instructions here: https://github.com/NebulousLabs/skynet-webportal (roughly a weekend of work to set one up at this point)

  • GitHub repo PasswordPusher

    🔐 Password Pusher is an application to securely communicate passwords over the web. Passwords automatically expire after a certain number of views and/or time has passed.

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • GitHub repo transfer.sh

    Easy and fast file sharing from the command-line.

    https://github.com/dutchcoders/transfer.sh/

    Oh, and there is also https://keep.sh, which is free for files less than 500MB - they have a commercial offering too.

  • GitHub repo rage

    A simple, secure and modern encryption tool (and Rust library) with small explicit keys, no config options, and UNIX-style composability.

    That was a very interesting read, and covers all the issues I had with GPG/PGP broken down on a per-use-case basis, which is really neat. Fairly up-to-date too (aside from maybe WhatsApp mentioned alongside Signal). In any case, thanks for sharing! Nice to see simplified and somewhat modernized tools like (https://github.com/str4d/rage) and (https://github.com/FiloSottile/age)

  • GitHub repo browser

    The browser extension vault (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge, Safari, & more).

    https://github.com/bitwarden/browser/releases/tag/v1.49.0

    I had to update my chrome extension manually but there's now a new "Send" button in the extension. Should be similar with firefox.

  • GitHub repo wsend-gpg

    Encrypted end to end file transfer

    I wrote this a while ago and full disclosure I am the maintainer of this repo and I run the service, but I wanted a way to do full end to end encryption that was easy for me to use

    https://github.com/abemassry/wsend-gpg

    The downsides are it's command line only, the upsides are you can audit the source and the encryption happens before it leaves your machine.

  • GitHub repo Hawkpost

    Generate links that users can use to submit messages encrypted with your public key.

    Interesting, it seems to work very similarly to Firefox Send.

    For communications in the other direction, such as when you want to make sure the other person sends you the content securely, there is https://github.com/whitesmith/hawkpost (disclaimer, this was an hackathon project I participated some years ago). Hawkpost doesn't even store the encrypted content.

    I wonder if there is a solution that would correctly deal with both situations (never requiring the other end to sign up or know anything about encryption).

  • GitHub repo Bitwarden

    The core infrastructure backend (API, database, Docker, etc). (by bitwarden)

    This issue claims they are starting work on PostgreSQL support this week.

    https://github.com/bitwarden/server/issues/453

  • GitHub repo magic-wormhole

    get things from one computer to another, safely

  • GitHub repo ffsend

    :mailbox_with_mail: Easily and securely share files from the command line. A fully featured Firefox Send client.

    Definitely. But many still use it, partially because of `ffsend` (https://github.com/timvisee/ffsend), so it's nice to have around.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
