    Encryption of Data to be sent from mobile to a server.

    Hello dear Programmers,
    I just started to work on a project which is 'Body Area Network'.
    What I need to do is to take data from body with help of some sensor nodes and send it to mobile which would further send the data to a remote server, and I need to add some security(encryption/decryption) on the data.

    So I want to know how to send data from mobile after encrypting it to the server and then decrypt it back(on server side).!
    Please reply asap.
    I will be very thankful.

    I'm confused as to what the real issue is here
    - data acquisition
    - encryption
    - data transmission
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I just gave a brief description about my work so that people could understand what was the real issue.
    Well, yeah I need encryption of data while transmitting it from mobile to any server/client.

    Well AES should be good enough for you then.

    you might consider openssl or gnutls. gnutls is encumbered by the GPL, so no proprietary software, but openssl is available under a proprietary-friendly license.

    Well, now I just need some encryption and decryption algorithms in C.

    I also need to encrypt the file/data which to be sent to server from Client(via socket programming.) and decrypt it at server's end.

    Any help could I get..??

    Well in my opinion, if you have the capabilities of creating a non-trivial and stable client/server application, encrypting the data wouldn't be that hard.
