Some key advantages:
When synching your notes, Ciphernote uses AES-256 for encryption and HMAC-SHA256 for message authentication. Since the data is already encrypted before it leaves your computer and reaches the datacenter, neither us nor anyone else will ever be able to access your notes.
Just in case one of your devices falls into the wrong hands, local copies of your notes are encrypted using SqlCipher.
There's also a blog post with some technical details about how Ciphernote implements Crypto.
In addition to local copies on your devices, Ciphernote will also store your notes in encrypted blob-form on Microsoft's Azure Cloud Platform. Geo-redundant storage (GRS) replicates your data to a secondary region that is hundreds of miles away from the primary region. That means that your data is safe even in case of a complete regional outage or a disaster in which the primary region is not recoverable.
Then all of your notes will be lost. If we could recover your password our service would not be secure at all.
Evernote import will be supported from day one. OneNote import will follow shortly after the first beta release.
The source code of Ciphernote's portable application core is available on Github. The AppCore repository contains the entire business logic including but not limited to local note storage, crypto and cloud synchronization. Since the .net assemblies of the various Ciphernote Clients will never be obfuscated, security professionals and interested users alike can verify that what's out in the wild matches the contents of this repository.
