A simple (portable, single-executable) editor for encrypted textfiles
- Triple DES
The encrypted data is encoded as base-64 and saved in a simple text-file
You can optionally specify a password hint for your encrypted files:
The file format contains two parts. The plaintext hint and the encrypted data (together with the used encryption algorithm).
The encrypted data is encoded in base-64.
- The first 32 byte block is the SHA-256 checksum of the unencrypted data (for verification).
- After that the next bytes are the used IV (length dependent on the algorithm)
- Then comes the raw encrypted data (encrypted with the specified algorithm)
As the Key derivation function we use 40,000 rounds of PBKDF2 over the UTF-16 encoded password.
