Large Library of Cryptographic Algorithms for VB Version 2.0

String Manipulation

Version Compatibility: Visual Basic 6, Visual Basic 5

More information:
A well compiled archive of 15 popular encryption algorithms (Blowfish, Twofish, Rijndael, Skipjack, Serpent, Gost, RC2, RC4, TEA, DES, 3DES, 3DES112, DESE, CAST5, IDEA), 6 popular one-way hash algorithms (MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA, SHA256, RipeMD) and a huffman compression algorithm. Extremely useful library for use in literally any type of VB project that calls for cryptography. The archive's website is at

Updates in version 2.0 (02/01/03): New features in this library include Base 64 encoding instead of Hexadecimal encoding (which is far more efficient), fixed key initialization functions (that many users complained about), the updated EBCrypt library, a couple CryptoAPI demonstrations from other authors, the inclusion of several classical ciphers, and an HTML page of crypto links.
