crypto archives

Post by pt1989 » Tue Jul 29, 2008 12:51 pm

Hi,
I wanted to know if anybody has used the crypto library from 7Zip. Is there any documentation where this has been used? because at the moment the intricacies of encryption algorithms.

But since code is already written and in use I would like to use that. Thanks.

Is there a sample usage of the code? Has anybody here tinkered around with it?

I think encryption is in general, is there any reason to choose 7-Zip libraries?
For general encryption you can use http://www.cryptopp.com/ or wxTripleDES from http://priyank.co.in

yes that is true.
although the fact that different archive formats have different file structures and hence i'm lazy to not read through the specifications and write code for that.

I'm specifically looking to decrypting encrypted archives. Since different formats like ZIP RAR 7z have different ways of storing hashes and other specifications, I would like to be abstract myself from these details. Thus with any further updates to 7Zip I would be able to update my software too (which is also going to be open-source ofcourse)
