This multi-lingual, multi-user program and its companion (Crypto Distributor) are parts of a crypto-system based on well published asymmetric public key and symmetric key crypto-algorithms (such as RSA and advanced encryption standard AES). It is the first embodiment of our next generation declarative cryptographic key, access right and digital source distribution and management technology. This program realizes the following functionalities:
- It can be used as a secure file/message encryptor or decryptor both on your local computer and in passing through the internet.It allows the public key authentication of the author, encryptor (sender) and intended list of receivers so that you can build your own virtual private network (VPN) over the public internet easily.
- The present version of the program has an email messaging subsystem to realize some of its network functionalities. Other such kind of messaging components can be plugged into the program with little efforts in the future. They enable the user to send securely signed and encrypted-mail messages, exchange key certificates, order key sources, (in the PRO or LAN edition) distribute digital products (media, software and data) and acquire access rights to crypto packed/formatted digital products described in the following. There is a graphic user interface enhancing viewer (browser) for the secured message that contains digitally signed (not necessarily by the same author) sections in the PRO or LAN edition of the program. The message sent to the viewer is XML formatted so that the style of the message display can be redesigned against the default one provided.
