    Question Security type in zip archives ?

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how passwords in zip archives (winzip, 7-zip, winrar etc.) are protected ? (e.g. what kind of encription if any - symmetric/asymmetric/hash etc. are used?)

    I've searching the net for an hour now without much success

    7-zip is open source.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
