Re: Encrypting file names?

About Blowfish advanced, I think you are right, they save the real file name inside and give just some kind of random name to the encrypted file, which is short. AESCrypt does not encrypt filenames, which has some pros and cons The advantage is that when I see a file like "Business plan 2012.pdf.aes...

Re: Encrypting publicly known content = weakness or not?

As far as I understand and know, encrypting a file or text (even a publicly known!) with AES in CBC mode (as used in AESCrypt) prevents an attacker from knowing if the encrypted file is the result of the encryption of the unencrypted (publicly known) file. :-) Sounds complicated but is easy, you can...

Re: New product using aescrypt (s3express)

Really good that AESCrypt is implemented in other programs, so it spreads arround. What I do not like is when Open-Source-Freeware is used in Shareware. :-D http://www.s3express.com/buy.htm License for 1 Computer US $99.95 2-5 Computers US $79.95 each 6-10 Computers US $74.95 each 11+ Computers US $...

Re: verification of downloads

I just downloaded the Windows-GUI-version directly from the secure-site https://www.aescrypt.com/download/ So, I got the file AESCrypt_v309_win32.zip Size: 950 KB (973.764 bytes) MD5: cee02a797d00baec2b5f96f0e8b68616 SHA-1: 33503f689eeaa470f6ddfa6a85302c7973caa84c SHA-256: cd97c7a379da2a531f1a9495ba...

Re: AES Crypt for Linux - Key File Support

Ok, I understand, you only can use a keyfile OR a password. In the case of automated backups the use of a keyfile is good, but every user is then responsible to protect this keyfile. An implementation of such an automated protection into AES Crypt is not necessary in my opinion. Sure, it would be co...

Re: AES Crypt for Linux - Key File Support

Ok, I understand, this is not a "2-Factor-Authentification", like, something you know (password) and something you have (keyfile). The keyfile in this case is only a password saved in an unencrypted keyfile and for some people this is even dangerous, keyfiles can get lost or stolen... You are right,...

Re: AES Crypt for Linux - Key File Support

Nice feature ! But this opens up some questions :-) Is it possible to use a keyfile AND password for the same encryption example: keyfile (inside the keyfile is the password 1234) and password abcd which opens the next question can I decrypt this encrypted file then with the use of only password ? i...
