This software provides an easy graphical way to encrypt your text documents from source code , text files ,scripts even jpeg files .It is a enhanced version of my earlier project https://sourceforge.net/p/xorencrypt which used win32 GUI .
This is a demonstration of working of XOR encryption which was used by Germans in World War II (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorenz_cipher) .
Besides from XOR'ing the message with password after every encryption the key changes pseudorandomly.
The password you provide is hashed ( SHA256 ) and saved into the encrypted file to check if the password provided is correct.This algorithm has limitations in general more the numbers of relative characters in the password to plaintext more secure will be the encryption.
XOR encrypt has a 3.5 of 5 editors rating from softpedia
- Supports various formats txt ,css , html ,jpeg , xml ,c , cpp , py
