ONLYOFFICE Announces Blockchain-Based End-to-End Document Encryption

Coming soon in the ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors 5.2.4 release, the blockchain-powered end-to-end document encryption feature promises to let users protect their documents, including temporary files, with an AES-256 asymmetric block cipher that’s being used even by the U.S. government. Documents that can be encrypted with the new end-to-end encryption feature include LibreOffice’s ODT (OpenDocument Text Document), Microsoft Office’s DOCX, XLSX, and PPTX, Oracle’s ODS (OpenDocument Spreadsheet), as well as the ODX business process orchestration diagram file format used by Microsoft BizTalk Server.
