This is a component that can provide encryption and decryption services to any application.
This ActiveX component tool will provide easy and advanced encryption, decryption and hash functions ASP or ASP.Net applications. This directly supports standard encryption and decryption algorithm like RSA, RC4, DES etc. It will support industry strength algorithms like RC2, RC4, DES, 3DES, 3DES2, AES128, AES192, AES256 also in addition. Hash functions provided include algorithms like MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512. The hash number of a file, string or a binary buffer would help validate the contents. Combined with a private key it could used to create digital signature to further improved security.
There are number of sample programs available that will make integrating the component fairly easy. These include source code examples in VBScript, ASP, ASP.Net, C#, VB.Net, PHP, VB6, Delphi, Coldfusion and BCB. With the importance of data security growing there is an increasing need for encryption/decryption as well as hash functions practically in every application. There is a set of tools that can help you add these functionality to just about every application. Only issue you need to assess is how robust these encryption and decryption or hash functions are. That is a difficult one but then these algorithms are so well known now that you should be getting pretty good ones. This is a good product with useful features.
