C/C++ encryption

Recommended Posts


I recently wrote a very small utility in C that generates a text list but now there is requirement to have that output encrypted.  A second application would then read the list, search for a match, update, save, and repeat.  Any recommendation on a simple library with a selection of encryption methods?   The object really is to keep the list from a little more than casual eyes poking around.

Thanks. I unearthed some simple code - not mine -  that uses linear feedback shift registers for the first version but will investigate OpenSSL.  The details of all of this is pretty foreign to me so I'm content with any reasonable solution.  Those wiki pages do in fact look useful.

Thanks again.
