Re: Project Still Active?

The current OpenID code is largely frozen. I would fix a security issue if discovered, but otherwise it's not changing. It works with what few sites still use OpenID. The issue is that people are now moving to OpenID Connect. I don't personally have a project related to OpenID Connect.

Re: MAC GUI AESCrypt : does not ask for confirmation password !!!

That's not a security risk, but it's unfortunate in that a typo could mean a file is lost forever.

Until that gets fixed, I'd suggest encrypting, renaming the file, then trying to decrypt. Renaming the file is important to avoid over-writing the original file. Doesn't matter which file is renamed.

Re: MAC GUI AESCrypt : does not ask for confirmation password !!!

You're right that AES Crypt should be asking for the password twice for verification. It was done that way on both Windows and Linux. I'm not sure why it's not on Mac. You are the first person to raise the issue, and that is surprising. When or if we can get an you're for Mac, I'll try to get that c...

Re: AESCrypt install issue on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

As a follow-up, I just installed the software on Ubuntu 18.04. I had no trouble; worked fine.

Re: AESCrypt install issue on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

That is just a compressed file, not a tar file. Do this at the command line: $ gunzip AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install.gz $ chmod 755 AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install $ ./AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install That should work. I discovered that lubuntu was missing zenity in a recent rel...

Re: Different key lengths (for example, 128, 192, 256 bits)

That option doesn't exist. AES Crypt always uses 256 bit keys for maximum security.

Re: Problem with Lubuntu

I had never used this version of Linux. I some difficulty getting it installed, but I finally got it installed. I could not get AES Crypt to install from the GUI. After struggling so much just getting Lubuntu to install, I was not surprised. This is clearly a really stripped-down version of Ubuntu. ...

Re: AES Crypt Significance compared to other tools

I wrote AES Crypt, so I'll give my biased view. :) At the time AES Crypt was written, I looked around for a good file encryption tool that was freely available. There really weren't a lot of options. I wanted something that's extremely easy to use on Windows. That performed a complex task as easily ...

Re: Encrypt files in folder

Yeah, that's the idea. You could also have the encrypted file placed elsewhere using the -o flag. I'm not a PowerShell user myself, so I can't suggest how to pass in the password. I assume you could somehow pass it as either an environment variable or as an argument to the script. I could do either ...

Re: AES + WinRar = Oil + Water

It sounds as if WinRAR is altering the files in some way. I'd be happy to look at it if you would send me a sample. The easiest thing to do is create a file using notepad with just the word "test" or something inside. Encrypt that file. Then copy the encrypted file so we have a "before and after" ve...
