A free open source data encryption program for steemit users

Hello, everyone this is my first software sharing for Steemit Community. I developed a software (programmed in Visual Basic 8) for encrypting any text data. It’ll play a vital role on Steemit Community, because, on Steemit Platform we need a very long passphrase to be saved. It’s impossible to memorize this passphrase. And, it’s also very dangerous to write down this passphrase in the notepad. There are too many free password keepers & encryption programs, but, maximum are not open-source. My main objective is to provide such type open-source program.

I use AES Rijndael Block Cipher Encryption Algorithm to encrypt text data.

Step by Step Development :

Open a new project in Visual Basic 8. Select “Standard EXE”.

enter image description here

enter image description here

Create two text boxes & two command buttons on the form. Text1 textbox, Text2 textbox, Command1 commandbutton & Command2 commandbutton.

enter image description here

Change the caption of the command buttons from “Command1” to “Encrypt data” & “Command2” to “Decrypt data”.

enter image description here

Add a class module “CRijndael” to the project

Add this following codes to the class module “CRijndael” :

Add a module “Module 1” to the project

Add this following codes to the module “Module 1” :

enter image description here

Option Explicit
'   I use AES Rijndael Block Cipher Encryption

Private AES_alog  As CRijndael
Public encryption_key As String

Input this following code to Form1 :

enter image description here

Private Sub Form_Load()
'don't reveal this key
encryption_key =

Make the exe file :

enter image description here

Completed ! Now run the exe file :

In this tutorial I’ll encrypt my steemit posting public key STM6ipnKtY59NESmg7Km5HjUuYzzRHKd8VYdLNXMyHAGUX7MnDWMh
enter image description here

After encryption I got this encrypted data 873B6CC83B0CBDC2CAC0FA1D94D4A7B9C092A6734EEC85480466DFBADCE7B8F179202D1E25AEA7FE354631E0193860ED2FB4226B162504D258A5E80FE0F5CF9D

You can save this data anywhere without any risk.

Now, I’ll decrypt it again –

enter image description here

Look that I successfully decrypt it by getting the text again STM6ipnKtY59NESmg7Km5HjUuYzzRHKd8VYdLNXMyHAGUX7MnDWMh

WARNING !!! I use an encryption key in the code.

‘don’t reveal this key
encryption_key = “37979fa464f002d8a9bcf743f786863bc090b16864f93a5d1f4b83f9d05” ’ you may set your own key

This code must be different when you make your own software. And you don’t reveal this key. If anyone gets this encryption key then your encrypted data shall be at risk.

very nice article :D

great software

great tutorial :D

which encryption mode are you using for your blocks? ECB?CBC?GCM?
