Re: Vigenere+ text cipher (toy)

Thank you joby_toss! Do you think it would help if I gave more details when I post about an app? I guess I kind of assumed people would go to the app listing and read the description... :?

Re: Vigenere+ text cipher (toy)

So, it has been a few days and Vigenere+ is still on the private list... Midas was kind enough to comment on the app but only two people have downloaded it and no one has voted. Please have a look at it, and if you like it vote for it. If for some reason you don't think it should be in the database ...

Vigenere+ text cipher (toy)

Vigenere+ is a text cipher application meant for entertainment and educational purposes. It enciphers and deciphers text using a keyed Vigenere cipher with a 100 character cipher alphabet and a key derived from your passphrase. http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2576 Please have a look and...

Re: Closeout

I finally got around to adding the exclusions system! And it is more flexible than the process based system 'that other app' uses. Windows can be excluded by partial or complete titles. This version is also a wee bit smaller than the last, not sure why though...

Re: XOR+ text cipher (toy)

I found and fixed a minor glitch in how XOR+ handled new line characters. I have updated the app entry.

Re: XOR+ text cipher (toy) beta testing?

Thanks for trying it out!

When you say the algorithm should be documented do you mean just a detailed description of the process? That is entirely reasonable... Do you think just including a description file in the zip would be enough?

Re: XOR+ text cipher (toy)

I agree, in principal, which is why I did not add it to Security - Encryption/Decryption. However, I consider there to be a significant difference between security and privacy. The XOR+ cipher is NOT a secure encryption but it is perfectly suitable as a privacy tool, as long as the user is warned ab...

XOR+ text cipher (toy) beta testing?

XOR+ is a text cipher app using the XOR method with multiple transposition, homophonic substitution and obfuscation steps. It is intended for fun and education, NOT SECURITY. Any feedback on the interface or documentation would be greatly appreciated, along with any bug reports. XOR+ is opensource f...

Text obfuscation or ciphering (not true encryption)

So, I have been fiddling for quite a while with writing a text cipher app. This app would be a clumsy implementation of cascade ciphering: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_encryption Basically, it would take plain text and process it through multiple distinct ciphers to make the final product m...

Re: Closeout

And that is quite accurate. I have released all my programs as open source freeware under no specific existing license. Here are the full terms: http://crzyinc.weebly.com/terms.html A shorter version of this is included with the source of every app on my site. Now... Any thoughts on an exclusion list?

Re: Closeout

I'd also like to see a whitelist of programs it *won't* close. That way I can run this program and not close down the few programs I *have* to have open at all times, but quickly shut down everything else. It's like restarting, but gentler. I agree an exclusion list is a good idea. I am working to ...

Re: Closeout

So, I was working on implementing an exclusion list feature for Closeout and found that Close All Windows allows process based exclusions through a command line parameter. I was working on a .txt file list the user could create in the app directory containing exclusions based on window titles. I can...

Re: Closeout

I see how a warning dialogue might be a good idea, but I think it may also partially defeat the purpose, closing all windows quickly with minimal fuss. I will add a warning to the list of possible future features, along with allowing an exclusion list and launching with parameters to close specific ...
