Shadow Crypt Publisher's description
An encryption software that can encrypt files with all the major known algorithm
At a first glance SC is an ordinary en/decryption tool. Maybe even more slow than the others existing on the market.
First of all, you should know about SC is that contains a brand new encryption algorithm, designed for my phd. In Brief, it contains a blockchiper on 512bit. Yes, it probably is a little bit slower than other programs. This is because it does a duble encryption. In the first layer encrypts the data with the ShadowEnc algorithm, and the result is once again encrypted with AES(rijndael).
There is a very great risk, where all cypher algorithm fail: the Human Factor, in other words, weak passwords. The SC eliminates this by using his own STRONG Password Generator who creates variable length passwords, form alphanumeric and other characters. So, anybody trying to guess the pass used to encrypt the file in reasonable time will fail. Another problem in other cryptographic programs is that they store an information about the key(or a predefined data), so, they can tell you from the begining that your PassPhrase is wrong. In my opinion this is a clear invitation to anyone who want to see your secret. Take a look for example on Kremlin. It is a preaty good program,but when you use a wrong key, it tels you imediatly. I even made a code, that bruteforce the kremlin system, and filewith a 5 character long alphanumeric pass was decrypted in about 6 hour. But imagine, that if the system wont tell you that the pass is wrong. From less then a second a single try will end up to from several seconds, to minutes, depending to the size of file to decrypt, this way decreasing a succesfull atac rate drasticaly. By using his double layer encryption it probably will stop any dictionary based atacs, couse even somebody manage to decrypt the first layer, he will end up with a big mess of encrypted data.
