Web Cipher (v1.0.1) – A Document Security Solution

By Joseph Myers on May 29, 2001

“Web Cipher is a client-side, cryptographically secure document encryption technology. It allows even an inexperienced web author to establish virtually uncrackable safety measures on confidential data. Web Cipher is also fast, substantially overcoming the problem of speed in browser-based cryptology. It averages almost 15K per second in real-world tests on an iMac 333 MHz computer, much faster than similar utilities. You can download the the web_cipher.zip or web_cipher.tgz file to obtain Web Cipher (including the cipher.js file), a sample page, and some documentation. Changes in this version: * No default key. * Minor typos corrected. * Some odd behaviors fixed. * Downloadable files added. ”
