Windows Encrypt/Decrypt Using Key

Post by Rapzid »


Is there any chance we can get the functionality added to provide a base64 encoded key to encrypt/decrypt on windows? I can see the Linux program supports specifying a key.. This would be super awesome.

I plan to add key file support to windows, but not Base64. The key file format is UTF-16LE. The files will be creatable either using aescrypt or notepad. (At present, the Linux package has an aescrypt_keygen, but I want to merge that into aescrypt itself.)
