Call for action: Please send me an encrypted file

tl;dr: Please encrypt a file and send it to me together with a (short) description, how I can make it readable for me.

Everyone is talking about encryption and nobody does it. This is a short summary of my initial asumption. Did you ever try to encrypt a file and to send it someone? How did you do it?

This is a fairly simple and basic task which you can present in a beginner’s course:

Assume another person uses a public computer (Internet cafe, library, etc.). You want to send a file to this person and keep the content confidential to other people. Encrypt a file on your computer and send it to the person.

I ask myself how you would do it. Thatswhy I decided to conduct a little experiment: Dear reader, please encrypt a (no so big) file and send it to me (via mail to enc2018@kubieziel.de, comment this post or use some other means to contact me). Add some information which to decrypt the file. You have no idea how to do this? I desperately want to know about it. Please write a mail or leave a comment. You tried and failed? I desperately want to know about it. Please write a mail or leave a comment. I would like to know how easy or hard this task is.

I plan to analyse the data on a anonymous basis and will introduce some tools in later posts.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
