A command line program for encryption and decryption of files. The program uses a 512-bit ARC5-64/80/64 (in CTR mode [1]).

As you can see in the specification, the program uses 80 rounds, which is four times more than the 20 rounds that are currently considered to provide full protection for an ARC5 that performs calculations on 64-bit numbers.

The program uses a key strengthening algorithm [2], this increases the security.

The program stores an encrypted checksum [3] of the original file, which is verified at decryption.

The program delivers an ErrorLevel code [4] which indicates success (0) or failure (1).

The speed is measured and the program will display the results for you when it's done.

Use the parameter "-NoPercent" to display the number of Bytes that has been processed instead of percent.

Speed Reference: Approximately 24 MB/sec. (Intel Core i3-9100) [5]

Important information: Save the downloaded program if you have information encrypted with it. I do not guarantee compatibility between different versions/revisions of the program.

License: Freeware.
Unicode Support: Yes.
Program Type: Fully portable, x64.
Operating System(s): Windows 7 (SP1+), 8.1 and 10. (Also Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016.)
Language(s): Only English.

[1] Counter mode, a block cipher mode used to make a stream cipher of a block cipher. In this program, a 128-bit random nonce is used, which is fetched from Microsoft Crypto API. (RANDOM.DLL / RANDOM-X86.DLL)
[2] The key strengthening algorithm is using SHA3-512 and executes 131,072 times. (KSA.DLL / KSA-X86.DLL)
[3] The encrypted checksum is a CRC-64-ECMA.
[4] The ErrorLevel code can be useful when calling from batch files or other programs.
[5] The speed reference is measured under good conditions, a fast disk and a pretty large file.
