obuf

obuf is a simple command line utility which makes unreadable (obfuscate) a plaintext file by using a password; of course makes also readable that file (deobfuscate) by using the same password. For example to obfuscate "myfile.txt" with password "abc" just type:

obuf -o myfile.txt abc >myfile.txt.obf

this creates a new file "myfile.txt.obf" with the content of "myfile.txt" but unreadable; delete "myfile.txt" then type:

obuf -d myfile.txt.obf abc >myfile.txt

this creates again "myfile.txt" from "myfile.txt.obf" with the content readable.

Now you are asking how many it is sure; there is nothing 100% sure and obuf does not make difference but it coulds be considered as more "sure" as long and complex is the used password.

I suggest to use only with plain text file, although it coulds be used with any other format, it is not guaranteed to work as expeted; another thing is to close the commands prompt just after used it in manner to delete the history.
