    Encrypted INI?

    I want to save a password in an INI. It's the default key for the blowfish encryption that the user decides. If I want to have that entire key encrypted, do I have to use the blowfish object with ANOTHER key do encrypt/decrypt or is there a different way to do this? Or can I make the file unaccessable some way but have it read by my program?

    You could try to save the password to one ini and your data to another.

    Re: Encrypted INI?

    I don't know how exactly what you're saying, but I encrypted the ini anyway because I found an easy way to do it.

    I'm going to upload this program to the archives so I can see if it is too easy to hack.

    Re: Encrypted INI?

    Take an array and fill the array with random letters and numbers, special characters and so on as a good cameo. Then seperate your string into letters and scatter them around the array on fixed locations. Make sure the Array is not saved *.arr and create with your name and extension. You could have a image folder and put the file into there, renaming it, including the extension.

    By now you already excluded 99% of the users from finding and changing your file. Haveing a unknown extension may also help.

    People who want to find your file will find it, know they tools to monitor file access and so one, and will also hack your application or game.

    Save the password in the array file and encrypt the ini file with that password using ini++.

    That should be enough as a solid protection.

    You don't have to, although like maVado said, that is the best way to keep most people from messing with your program.

    Sooooo... If I want the passwords safe, do what maVado says, if I want the passwords pretty safe, do what I have now.

    You don't have to do exactly what maVado said, that is just one way to do it. But basically, yes. If you want your program that secure, then try a method like that. If you don't need your program that secure, just basic encryption and file extension renaming should work.

    Re: Encrypted INI?

    Well... the program itself is not what I'm afraid of being hacked, it's the users password that I don't want getting out. You know what I mean? Like, it's a Password/Username saver and they need a password (ironic, I know) to access it. I don't want other people on the computer figuring out what the password is.

    Re: Encrypted INI?

    I looked at your program. The protection you have on it is more than enough for the average user. I have a program that saves usernames/passwords on my website, and I did not use an extreme security measure either.
