Encrypt file AES Crypt and Decrypt using openssl

Post by girishpadia » Mon Feb 16, 2015 1:30 pm

Hi All,

I am new to cryptography. I have encrypted a file aescrypt on Linux. I tried to decrypt the same file using openssl Linux command with -aes-(128/192/256)-cbc options. But I cannot decrypt the file. Is aescrypt and openssl are compatible with each other? Please advice.

Thanks in advance.

They're not compatible with each other. OpenSSL uses a different file format.
