Encryption protocol in Air Explorer

Encryption protocol in Air Explorer

Encryption is a great way to keep valuable data safe in your cloud storage. Air Explorer can encrypt your files and folders when you upload them to the cloud. The encryption protocol used is Rijndael CTR with a 256 bits key.

When you encrypt in Air Explorer, it is required to set a password, which allows you to encrypt the file and to decrypt it later on when you want to view it again. For the password, you can use as many characters as you want and any UTF-8 character.

To encrypt a file or a folder, you have to activate the “Encrypt Uploads” button.
When you transfer a file or a folder, a window asks you about a password.

    Is there any other way to unencrypt things if, for example, your company should go out of business? Just wondering, as I’ve seen other places use open source methods to safeguard in such a case. It would be a shame to have everything encrypted online and no third party software to unencrypt things should your company every disappear ( I hope it doesn’t 🙂 )

    Hello, I’m trying to decrypt Air Exporer encrypted files by code.
    I tried to convert the string password to 32 bytes array using SHA-256 hash algorithm but it did not work.

    Can you tell me how do you parse the user password to a 32 bytes array?

    Don’t worry. I fanally found the way.
    Thanks for your “help”

    Antonio, what was the way? Is there any software freely available to unencrypt files easily without using Air Explorer? I too would like a good answer to the original comment in this thread 🙂
