I'm developing an applet for IE with Microsoft VM plugin, I want to encrypt data inputted before writing it to a text file. JCE cannot be used here, so I would like to have a solution/source code which implements cryptography algorithsm (such as DES).
You can find the source code for the various AES finalists right here. Rijndael is the one that ultimately was chosen, so if you want AES, that's the one. I'm sure you can find sources for DES as well if you google for it.
I learned a new word last week. Homemade encryption schemes are known as "encraption" because so few people are smart enough to write a good one and the rest of us are only foolin ourselves. Use something with a proven track record.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
