Encryption Design Weakness

JQB A-0.0.4 has a design weakness in content encryption which renders encrypted material prone to brute force attacks. I hope I will come around for a next release which will solve the issue.

** JQB A-0.0.4 Tech Upgrade Release

Release of JQB-A 0.0.4 is an interim technology upgrade of the JQBStandardDataFile class.
It improves data through-put and record streaming capabilities and introduces file-locking security. For details see the change log of the download package.

Announcement: This release is the basis of the first public JQB application: *FileHashler* (http://sourceforge.net/projects/filehashler), a useful file encryption and archivation utility.... read more

** JQB offers expected stable Standard Datafile

JQBStandardDataFile has been refined and completely tested on JUnit test cases for an expected stable version now available in JQB-A Vers. 0.0.3. Data encryption and authentication designs have been overhauled and now represent state-of-the-art technology using (AES candidate) Twofish and SHA-256.

Use JQB datafiles to store your serializable application data in a most easy way and a highly secure form on disk files, optionally protected by qualified data encryption. User friendly design allows you simple usage. All you need to do for encryption is supplying an access key. The present implementation package supports datafiles on a record basis with a fixed user-defined maximum record length.... read more

** First Results

In this project I intend to offer a Java data and index file service module on a record based (ante-relational) level for small, midrange or prototyping application tasks. High quality programming and reliability as well as documentation will be the guidlines. Effectiveness, flexibility, scalability and several intelligent file features will be the landmarks of this API and make it interesting for application tasks which do not require nor wish for a huge, performance dragging and inflexible external database background.... read more
