Chilkat adding support for 3DES, DES, RC2, and ARC4

The next version of the Chilkat Crypt component (dated after 17-Oct-2007) will include support for Triple-DES (both 168-bit 3-key 3DES and 112-bit 2-key 3DES), older (and weaker) 56-bit DES, the RC2 block cipher, and the ARC4 stream cipher.

Over the next few days, a series of posts and examples will appear as Chilkat continues to test the pre-release software. The new encryption functionality is available in the Chilkat pre-release downloads.

This post will be updated to include links to posts and examples with information about 3DES, DES, RC2, and ARC4.

ARC4 Stream Cipher Examples

Using ARC4 Stream Encryption as a PRNG (Pseudo-Random Number Generator)
