R10Cipher Released Soon ...

I'm just doing the final testing of R10Cipher, ensuring that it runs well and looks nice on Linux. Mac OSX was easy as that is my preferred development platform, Windows XP and Vista was also straightforward with just a few modifications. Linux has proven a bit more troublesome but I'm happy with the results so far.

R10Cipher is a simple Cross Platform Encryption / Decryption tool. It is aimed at a specific market who have a great need for this, and a mix of hardware, hence I had to make it work across all viable platforms, but I will be releasing this as a general purpose tool as well.

R10Cipher basically can take text and encrypt it using Blowfish encryption. This file can then be emailed or sent elsewhere and the recipient can use R10Cipher to open the file and view the encrypted contents, assuming they are in possession of the Shared Key that was used to encrypt the document in the first place.

Many people do not realise that sending an email is the equivalent of sending a postcard, it's contents are easily visible. For certain markets this is totally unacceptable and with the rumoured hijacking and potential complexity of the Public Key Encryption systems it makes sense to encrypt using a utility such as this. R10Cipher can also be used in conjunction with Sicuro my 'Data Vault' software that will be available before Christmas. I have added the functionality of R10Cipher to Sicuro, so a user of Sicuro and a user of R10Cipher can share encrypted documents with no problems.

I'll produce the documentation tonight and tomorrow and R10Cipher will be available for download over the weekend.
