jencrypt - jEncrypt is a file encryption archiver designed to help you
encrypt files and directories into a single file archive.
jencrypt -e, --enc [File or folder to encrypt] [Destination file]
-d, --dec [File to decrypt] [Destination folder]
-p, --pwd [Password to use for en-/decryption]
Interface : command line
Source language : J2SE 7.0
Use requirements : Java Runtime Environment 7.0
Java Cryptography Extension 7.0 (enables support
for keys larger than 128 bits)
jEncrypt encrypts and decrypts files using the Java Cryptographic
Extension (JCE) framework.
To use key strenghts above 128 bits with Oracle's Java software, Oracle
provides unlimited strength policy files. The folder shell\UnlockJCE
contains an installer for Windows XP/7 which makes backups of the
existing policy files and installs the JCE unlimited strength policy
files automatically to the correct folders.
jEncrypt encrypts data with the AES-CTR mode which was first recommended
by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in 2001 (NIST SP
The AES-CTR mode only provides confidentiality; to ensure an encrypted
message is not accidentally modified, or maliciously tampered with, a
separate message authentication code is required which jEncrypt
currently does not provide.
-enc Encrypt [File or folder to encrypt] to the archive file
-dec Decrypt [File to decrypt] to the folder [Destination folder].
-pwd Password from which the encryption key will be derived.
-ini Full path to the configuration file.
All other parameters are configured and documented in jencrypt.ini.
