AES Crypt in JavaScript

Folks, Aaron Flin reached out to me saying he had written a version of AES Crypt in JavaScript. I've had a few people request things like that over the years, so I wanted to provide a link to his repository here. He said it might still have some bugs in the code, so I don't (yet) want to link to it ...

Re: New feature: Original filename in encrypted file

Understood. I've had that request before, but then others have expressed that they like the fact the name isn't preserved. In fact, there is some plaintext metadata in the .aes file header that folks asked to have added and others want it removed. The challenge is each of these competing options lea...

Re: New feature: Original filename in encrypted file

I don't understand the problem. AES Crypt doesn't care what the file is named. When you encrypted a file named "foo.jpg", the resulting AES Crypt file will be "foo.jpg.aes" by default. When you decrypt a file named "foo.jpg.aes", the resulting file will be "foo.jpg". The only error some people get i...

Re: Decrypt in memory?

I created a test file on my desktop with a bunch of lines of text in it. I called it "passwords.txt". I then encrypted it. I then went to the command prompt and typed the following command and received the corresponding output: C:\Program Files\AESCrypt>aescrypt.exe -d -p abc123 -o - c:\users\paulej...

Re: Decrypt in memory?

After the -o you need hyphen. Looks like you need a space before passwords.txt.aes. That means to send it to "standard out", which is your screen at the command line.

However, if the file is binary, it would look like that.

Re: Decrypt in memory?

Let's say it decrypts a file to memory. How do you plan to access it? And once the program exits, you won't have access to the memory, either.

This is really only useful to people integrating the code into other programs. It's not something useful otherwise.

Re: AESCrypt for High Sierra (64-bit MacOS)?

Need a volunteer to rebuild a 64-bit image, apparently.

I've asked the guy who built the Mac package before.

In the interim, will this work to force Mac to run AES Crypt in 32-bit mode?

Re: Decrypt in memory?

That's only useful for programmers. If one decrypts to RAM, it's useless without something acting on that RAM. The simplest thing would be to take the current code and modify it to do what you want. If you want a set of functions to encrypt and decrypt in RAM, you could use the AES String Crypt libr...

Re: uninstall on Mac

There are basically three steps:

1) Open “Finder" (OS X version if Windows Explorer)
2) Click on “Applications” in the sidebar
3) Drag the AESCrypt Icon to the trash

Re: C & PHP library HMAC differences

Which C code are you using? There is "AES String Crypt" (or whatever I called it) that only produces a version 0 file format. And I think the Python code does not support version 0. But, if you're using the regular "AES Crypt" C source used for Linux and Mac builds, then the output is the latest fil...
