Now, on Pocket PCs, I have yet to find a reliable open-source implementation of a strong cipher such as AES. Right now that leaves me totally unprotected, even my weekly backups on SD Card are unprotected (Sprite offers a password requirement, but it is easily defeated). In other words, someone could steal the card and have the full content of my PDA ;(
What about gnupg? There are binaries for Pocket PC available at http://www.symbolictools.de/public/p...cations/gnupg/

Or Bruce Schneier's Password Safe (using Blowfish) available from https://sourceforge.net/project/show...ease_id=191101
Only the 1.9.2 version is avialable for Pocket PC at the moment
