From the research conducted at the beginning of the project development I found there was a severe lack of android applications that allowed users to encrypt varies file types and store them securely in a database of any type. Most applications on the Google Play Store that allow encryption of some sort are mostly messenger like applications or focus on one type of file to encrypt such as images. I also found applications using unsecure encryption algorithms such as MD5 as well have a basic or unappealing user interface.

The Kryptium android application will allow users to encrypt and safely store passwords, text blocks, images and files, such as word, pdf and excel files. These will be encrypted using currently secure encryption algorithms such as AES 256 and TwoFish as well as steganography techniques. The user interface will be as simple as possible to allow users of all experience levels to use the application with ease.

A web application will also contain all the functionality of the android application and allow users to encrypt or decrypt their data on either the android application or on a laptop, or anything with a browser.

The android applications database is a Google Firebase Realtime Database which allows users to access their data on both platforms as the database is hosted online not physically on either device.
