Voget Selbach Enterprises GmbH (VSE) has released a new version of their security tool and password manager VSE My Privacy.
VSE My Privacy is a data security package that lets Mac users store and organize their confidential data in a safe place. It uses a 448-bit encryption algorithm to encrypt the data.
VSE is a German company. That means that US export restrictions on cryptography do not apply, according to
MacTech magazine. The German government does not require that software developers make any kind of back doors or use key recovery escrow, Johannes Selbach of Voget Selbach Enterprises said. For that reason, VSE My Privacy can use an absolute bulletproof encryption algorithm, he added.
VSE My Privacy 1.5 now allows you to add and remove categories in which your data should be stored. The new version also features other small improvements and minor bug fixes.
VSE My Privacy costs US$19.95 and multi-user licenses are also available — it can be
ordered online. There is also a fully functional demo version available that runs for 30 days. To use VSE My Privacy 1.5 requires a Power Mac running Mac OS 7.6.1 or higher. A Carbonized version for Mac OS X is planned for summer release.
