Encrypt file names in archives, prevent showing content list



disable browsing archives without password


How to set to ask password for listing, browsing archive content


Under some circumstances, when protecting archive files with encryption, it can be recommended to encrypt the list of files featured inside an archive to hide it from unauthorized users, in order to disallow showing list of archive content before providing password, otherwise, even if the file data itself is encrypted, readable filenames can leak hints to attackers about the nature of the archive.

disallow listing of archives without password


To prevent this kind of information leak and make archive table of content (TOC) unreadable without knowing the password, disabling listing of the archive when the user will try to open the encrypted archive file, click on the padlock icon to set a password (and optionally a keyfile) for the archive and check "Encrypt also file names" option in the password dialog.
The padlock icon can be found in the status bar, in the file/archive browser, or below the output field in the archive creation interface

hide list of files inside archives

Support for encryption of archive's table of content depends on the archive format design: this feature can't be added to formats lacking it by design, as enforcing it on the archive manager will enable the attacker to bypass this "protection" simply using a different software to list the archive's content.

encrypt archive TOC table of content

Support of file names encryption in standards supported by PeaZip:
  • ZIP format lacks this feature, meaning this option will have no effect and archive TOC will always be readable before providing the correct password even if the data is encrypted
  • 7Z and ARC formats support encryption of filenames, so if this option is in use the archive content will be hidden unless correct password is provided for browsing it
  • PEA format, by design, will never display content of an encrypted archive until correct password is provided, and no option is provided to otherwise allow listing of password-protected files
