    encryption information

    hey, i was wondering if anyone was aware of an encryption tutorial incorporated with the win32 api and if theres information on how to incorporate a good method of encryption into a program. mainly for saving files so they can't be accessed by other programs and so its not like, simple to figure out the encryption algorightm.

    thanks

    Windows comes with CryptoAPI.

    You can also use third-party crypto libraries in your programs. I am now looking at LibTomCrypt.

    thanks.

    i've tried using CryptoSys API in the past but i had anti-luck with it, lol so hopefully one of those will work out better.


    mm...how would i use Crypto++ with Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2?


    thanks.
