My Secret 1.1



My Secret 1.1 is an update for the text encryption utility that uses strong
448 bit Blowfish or 256 bit Rijndael encryption to secure text messages and
private notes. The application is $10 shareware.

BERLIN, GERMANY – April 19th, 2001 – Shareware author Erich H Rast has
released an update to his text encryption tool My Secret. The Macintosh
application acts like a simple multi-document notepad and encrypts and
decrypts private notes and messages using symmetric block ciphers like 448
bit Blowfish and 256 bit Rijndael, the latter being the new Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES). The update fixes several bugs and is recommended
to all users. The application is USD $10 shareware and the upgrade from
version 1.0 is free for registered users.

New features in version 1.1 are:

– new menu item Encrypt & Save
– several bug fixes, enhanced overall stability
– now saves all window positions and settings
– support for multiple encryption (TEMK)
– support for small 2-character plain text headers
– fully customizable hard-wrapping (can be switched off as well)
– facility to apply test vectors
– better user interface and improved window layout
– more Balloon help items and help tags on OS X

Some of My Secret’s main features are:

– full drag & drop support
– support for custom, external encryption plug ins written in C/C++
– built-in compression for smaller size and higher security
– secure hashing: chaining of SHA1 and MD5
– built-in Blowfish encryption and additional 3 encryption plug ins
– secure file deletion & overwriting
– balloon help and easy user-interface
– automatic Base64 encoding for easy transfer of encrypted messages
– can store multiple encrypted parts in one plain text message and
decrypt them all at once on the fly
