Re: Incorrect decrypted content

That should definitely not happen. If the wrong password is entered, AES Crypt should fail to decrypt. There is, indeed, a CRC-type feature in AES Crypt. Specifically, it's an HMAC-SHA-256. If the wrong password was given, the HMAC check should fail right at the start of the file, even before the ba...

Re: Decryption tools?

For AES Crypt files or something more generic? There are several third-party implementations of AES Crypt, most of which are linked from the Download page.

Re: Apple T2 chip Encryption

If there are no mechanisms to get the key, it's not going to be possible to decrypt the data. But since the OS is apparently able to speak to the chip to encrypt, there must be a way you can, too. Sounds like some entertaining hacking. This isn't something strictly related to AES Crypt, but I'm none...

Re: Implementation for golang

Unfortunately, I do not. Creating a corpus of those is on my to-do list, but I have not created them, yet. I have a laundry list of such things to do, which means it's not likely to happen soon. Maybe I can find some time during the holiday break, if you're really interested.

Re: Implementation for golang

Nice addition! I have no tested it, but I trust it works. I added a link to your code here in a new Go section (as one did not exist before): https://www.aescrypt.com/download/ You're welcome to use the name AES Crypt in relation to your open source project that works with AES Crypt. A link back to ...

Google Sucks. Here's Why.

Having tens of thousands of visitors to Packetizer every month, we attract a number of people who just want to create problems for us. We have had issues where "hackers" would create lots of fake accounts that we'd have to delete. Those bogus registrations would send emails to people who actually di...

Re: aescrypt-gui update to use keyfiles

That's in my long list of to-do items. But my plan in the end would be to collapse they key file concept into aescrypt so that separate key generation is not necessary. But, it won't be addressed soon. There are pros and cons with the approach, the biggest con being that the keyfile sits in the clea...

Re: Decryption tools?

AES Crypt requires a version of AES Crypt to decrypt. However, AES Crypt is open source and documented. Keep a copy of both the binary and source code. That's exactly why I made it open source. I had the exact same concern as you.
