Yes, that’s the gist of it. We’ll be publishing detailed specifications about exactly what we do, both in laymen terms as well as with technical details. We’ll also be publishing documentation about the file format we use, and how we apply the cryptographic primitives, as well as how to call our public REST API (which is what AxCrypt does for it’s online extensions).
For now, though, I’ll try to answer questions such as yours well as I can (and then I’ll re-use some of the text when I publish it more formally).
I feel that we have a reasonable compromise between theoretical security and practical usability. Of course, not all will agree, but we’ll be very upfront with exactly what we do and why.
