A simple, modern and secure encryption tool (and Go library) with small explicit keys, no config options, and UNIX-style composability. - GitHub - FiloSottile/age: A simple, modern and secure encry...
I’m not sure why this hasn’t been included before. It’s one of the best encryption tools available today as a modern file encryption successor to gpg, built by one of the most reputable cryptographers in the world:

I think it might be worthwhile to have a "Security Advanced" section as well as the "Security Basics". I do want to write an article for the Basics section that incorporates what is https://github.com/privacyguides/privacyguides.org/discussions/468
Likewise now that Infosec Handbook seems permanently offline, we could write an article which demonstrates [Minisign](https://web.archive.org/web/20210813101914/https://infosec-handbook.eu/tutorials/tool-minisign/), and [Signify](https://web.archive.org/web/20210814181026/https://infosec-handbook.eu/tutorials/tool-signify/) and their use with [Age](https://github.com/FiloSottile/age/).
I think advanced guides are actually good, as well, because even IT fluent people, including developers often need guidance.
@dngray I’m not sure why we’d mention a tool in an advanced guide that isn’t recommended software, so we could probably add this to the CLI tools section we already have on https://www.privacyguides.org/en/encryption/…
