SpiralCrypt Publisher's description
from Kevin P. Barry
batch processing, daemon processing, and stream processing encryption operations
The SpiralCrypt command line Tool is a program for Batch processing, daemon processing, and stream processing encryption operations. spiral has quite a few features useful only on Unix-like systems due to their inherent ability to support data piping. As of now, all features compile into both Windows and Linux versions, however the Windows OS cannot support some of those features.
The SpiralCrypt encryption algorithm is a byte stream cipher which continually hashes The Encryption key as it applies the algorithm to new data. Unlike block ciphers, this algorithm incidentally encrypts each byte based on its position relative to the beginning of the operation. The algorithm also recursively works the previous byte of data into the encryption process. This ensures that if data at the beginning isn't decoded correctly, neither will the rest of the data be. This also ensures that sections of the data that don't start at the beginning cannot be decrypted independently of the previous data. Finally, this ensures that long stretches of repeating patterns are not detectable in the resulting data.
spiral has various secondary functionality in addition to Encryption And Decryption:
-Calculate check sums.
-Calculate data statistics.
-Merge sets of data.
-Convert to/from legible storage.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
