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.

Re: Size files question

The C code (used on Linux, Mac, and Windows) can handle any size file. It can create any size file the operating system (or media) will allow.

Re: AESCRYPT DO NOT OPEN

If you right-click on a file and don't see the "AES Encrypt" or "AES Decrypt" menu option, then you probably installed a 32-bit version on a 64-bit machine (or vice versa). Verify the architecture type for your operating system. Since you installed AES Crypt already, first uninstall it and reboot to...

Re: AESCrypt on Ubuntu 20.04

I've seen a few GUIs where that sort of thing happened. It just reminds me that I need to find a better installer. Try this: $ ./AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install --mode console That will bypass the GUI install window and just install the software. It should still work as expected once installed.

Re: Large quantity of files to decrypt

There's no switch, but you could redirect error messages like this:

Code: Select all

aescrypt -d -p secret foo.txt.aes 2>nul
PowerShell uses $null rather than nul, I think.

Re: Large quantity of files to decrypt

Yes, there's a command-line version installed with the GUI version. See C:\Program Files\AESCrypt\aescrypt.exe.

To use it, see the examples here: https://www.aescrypt.com/windows_aes_crypt.html

Or type "aescrypt -h" for help.
