Your DOCman files can be encrypted on your server thanks to this plugin. Encryption happens automatically on upload while decryption happens seamlessly on download.
The plugin uses Rijndael 128bit encryption algorithm. This algorithm was selected by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as the candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

Only available for Business and Agency subscribers.
- PHP 5.3 or newer
- PHP's mcrypt extension
Your encryption key should be stored in your server as an environment variable named DOCMAN_ENCRYPTION_KEY.
If it's not found, the plugin will use a fallback encryption key. You can change this key on the plugin's settings.

To encrypt your files, just enable the Encrypt plugin then upload your files via backend or frontend. Only files that are uploaded after the plugin is enabled will be encrypted. Files uploaded via FTP will not be encrypted.
