According to A. Morrow:

Very few people use the term 'cryptofascist', and those who do tend to be left-wingers. Fascism involves the subordination of the individual to a "totalitarian" state. Right winged libertarians like myself advocate privatization and small government. We are totally opposed to totalitarian states.

From what I can tell, A cryptofascist is essentially a what an american would consider to be a right-winger. It especially includes those who believe that the upholding the law is one of the highest moral principles. Example: Robert A. Heinlein.

The word crypto means secret or hidden (cryptography is the study, and practice, of hiding secrets) ; a cryptofascist is someone who is secretly a fascist.
