Encrypt / decrypt files using the one-time pad.


If you have cargo installed, run:

cargo install onetime-cli

Otherwise you can download an executable from the Release section.


The simplest way to encrypt a file called secret.txt is:

onetime-cli encrypt secret.txt

which will generate two new files secret.txt.otp.0 and secret.txt.otp.1. You can then delete secret.txt.

To decrypt secret.txt, run:

onetime-cli decrypt secret.txt

which will use the two secret.txt.otp.* files to decrypt secret.txt. You can then delete these two files.

To see more possible cli arguments, run:

onetime-cli --help
