Encryption ActiveX Questions


A couple of questions regarding Crypt ActiveX:

  1. Do you support, or plan to support, full file encryption?
  2. Am I correct in that your support of the Rijndael algorithm is saying, somewhat obliquely, that you support AES?
  3. What versions of Windows are supported?


  1. The latest version of Chilkat Crypt has EncryptFile and DecryptFile methods that allow any size file to be encrypted.
  2. Yes, AES is a synonym for Rijndael. (In other words, AES = Rijndael)
  3. The ActiveX works on Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003, etc.
    If you need Win95/98/ME/NT4.0 support, Chilkat can provide an alternate build that runs on these.
    However, Chilkat will eventually drop support for these older platforms.
