XOR+ text cipher (toy) beta testing?

If you are currently developing portable freeware or planning to do so, use this forum to discuss technical implementation, seek out like-minded developers for partnership, or solicit interested users for beta testing.

XOR+ text cipher (toy) beta testing?

#1 Post by dmg » Mon Dec 16, 2013 4:53 pm

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 freeware, saves no settings and makes no system changes at all. It should be entirely portable and stealth.

Tested -- working as expected. 8)

After noticing that encryption/decryption can be iterated, maybe that could be made into a feature -- say, a field for the number of times to iterate...

Also, the encryption algorithm should be documented, IMHO.

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?

  • Yes (on both counts :)).
