This program allows you to encrypt and compress a group of files and folders to a single encrypted archive file.
You can create self-extracting programs containing encrypted archives and e-mail it to your friend. He or she will receive this archive and can read your files, either via knowing the correct password or via using public or secret key technology.
All already generated public and secret keys used in other programs can be also used in BCArchive to create encrypted archives and e-mail it to desired recipient. BCArchive uses strong symmetric encryption algorithms such as Blowfish, IDEA, Triple-DES and CAST5. It also uses secure hash algorithms such as SHA-1, MD5 and RIPEMD-160. It uses asymmetric public/secret key algorithms such as RSA and ELGamal/Diffie-Hellman. It conforms to specifications PKCS #5, PKCS #12 and X.509.
