Encryption for Windows, Linux, and UNIX

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
Deux Sortes has released version 3.0 of CryptoTools, a multi-language suite of encryption components and libraries which enables developers to add security to their applications through encryption. It supports almost all current popular programming languages and platforms, including Windows, Linux, and UNIX.

Components, files and sample programs for all languages are distributed in a single package, with the advantage that you need to learn only one API and buy only one package.

CryptoTools can encrypt binary data, text and files, using any of four industry-standard encryption algorithms: DES, TripleDES (3 DES), Base64 encoding and MD5 hashing. Its components can be incorporated into programs written in C (Win32), C++, ActiveX/COM, C#, Visual Basic .NET, Delphi, Java (multi-platform), and many other popular languages.

CryptoTools offers portability, in that all libraries and languages versions are completely compatible with one another. This means you can (for example) encrypt in Java on Linux on one side, and decrypt on the other side using VB .NET on Windows. The suite is also compatible with third-party encryption tools.
