It will take some time before I switch to AES again. But I will.

in bazaar is a DeEncrypter based on AESStream. i hope i am using it right (Mindtraveller could review it). it works so far, but only for files < 200 MB or so (allocator breaks with Out of Memory sometime, if file too big, it's the upp allocator i am using, default case).

so the matter is, it can import keys. and could be extended with a functionality to derive the key from a user password...

but best would be to have a port for RSA asymetrical encryption. then one could encrypt the key and leave it encrypted with the public key, stay with the data somewhere, and 'unlock' (decrypt) it with the password, which would result somehow in the private key.

as far as i remember the major encryption programs do it the same Smile, maybe more fancy

Which package/file is to look at?

the package is named 'DeEncrypter', there is no ref in uppweb yet, it's too young Smile

If I'm not mistaken, you load each file into the memory and then encrypt/decrypt it. If it's right, then you do wrong way.

The main idea behind AESStream classes is streaming. This means you don't need to load the file into memory. All you need is to open file and read its contents by small chunks into AESStream class then taking encrypted(decrypted) chunks from it into other file. You don't have to load file into memory. You don't have to handle large String object within your code.

I think the fact you have exception for large files means you should switch to chunks and streaming and refuse loading whole file into memory.

yes, absolutely.

this was a quick shot, i needed it for my app, delivering some additional ressource files, which should be 'scrambled' Smile for small files it works with no issues, i just wanted to try it with larger files ofcorse.

i am not very familiar with the Stream stuff in upp yet, but definitely need to..

meanwhile, i dont mind anyone to change the behaviour accordingly, this could, infact, be a true life example of how to do streaming processing with AESStream..if you already know what to change, feel free to do so Smile i might do it as soon as i have some more info on that and some more time.. like always.

cheers

Please read AESStream package help page. It has example of "right" approach to streaming. If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

P.S. koldo, I remember I've promised to embed key generation functionality and I will do it in the near future. Excuse my delay.

i've looked there before.but couldnt quite get well with the example.. after all, you too are using Strings sIn and sOut to contain loaded and generated data. i suppose i need to use FileStream at that point, and call flush from time to time...

I've finally embedded user password hashing into AESStream classes. This means you may use password as argument without any potential security problems. AESStream classes calculate SHA256 hash from your password and use it as a key.

koldo, could you please take this archive and update packages in bazaar? There is also a new version of MtAlt there. Thanks in forward.

Excellent.

Now plain user password can be used!

Two things:

- As class has changed, old encrypted strings and keys do not match Sad. Could you add the user password possibility not by default? (as it was before)

- In AESHashedString() you could just use SHA256String() function in Sha.cpp file Smile.




Best regards
Iñaki

1) Yes. I'll make new classes with new names for updated behaviour, while old ones will behave like before.
2) No, I can't. SHA256String returns hex-formatted string, not hash itself.

DeEncrypter is now streaming the files properly (i hope).
if you could get a look into it...
the user password thing could be encorporated there as an extra button.. for loading the SHA256 key.. but i'm not yet familiar with this.

Hello All

Now, as it should be from the beginning, SHA256String() and rest of SHA2 functions return the SHA hash in binary.

For all SHA2 functions there is a version that return the hash in Hex, like SHA256Hex().

Currently I'm using AESStream heavily and must admit that automatic SHA hash from password provided is not a must. In a number of situation the original password is still needed.

Hello, is AESStream compatible with php ?
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mdecrypt-generic.php

I can't decrypt my messages using
http://aes.online-domain-tools.com/

(AES with 32 byte key in CBC mode)


Also I'm quite confused that there is no AES_decrypt() call anywhere in AESDecoderStream?
