Supported encryption methods
The Ultimate Encryptor makes it easy to encrypt or decrypt files or streams.
It provides the following unique features:
- Supports file encryption
- Supports stream encryption
- Supports XTS-AES, AES, 3DES and Twofish in CBC mode
- Support password-based protection and PBKDF2 key derivation
By using 100% managed code written in C#, the Ultimate Encryptor component
takes advantage of the numerous built-in features of the .NET Framework to enhance
performance, moreover, the component is CLS compliant, and it does not use
any unsafe blocks for minimal permission requirements. In addition, the component is highly compatible with Microsoft ClickOnce.
Supports many .NET Platforms
Ultimate Encryptor Component for .NET supports the following platforms:
- Windows Forms
- Web Forms
- Web Services
In addition, it is also possible to use the component in
PowerShell - Microsoft’s new command console and scripting language.
Ultimate Encryptor is fully compatible with Visual Studio 2005 to 2017 (.NET 2.0 to .NET 4.6.x). As a benefit, you are always up-to-date with Microsoft's Technologies when using our products.
Supports event-driven (Asynchronous) and blocking (Synchronous) Design
Most applications written with the Encryptor component will be synchronous.
Synchronous method gives you the ease-of-use, but it can only returns the control
back to the caller after it has finished, meaning that it blocks the execution of
the caller for a period of time. Using synchronous method is recommended when you
only need to execute one Encryptor operation at a time.
You might decide that your design requires an asynchronous operation when it is
needed to manage email messages simultaneously. Asynchronous methods provide a great deal
of power. Asynchronous method is executed on a thread separate from the calling
thread. Such operation is useful when an operation is time consuming
and other codes need to execute without waiting for the initial operation to complete.
In addition, the user interface will be most responsive when asynchronous methods
The component has been designed with a great degree of flexibility
and can be used with a wide variety of programming languages and different types
of development environments. Available as a managed .NET class, it is fully supported
by languages such as Visual Basic, Visual C#, J#, Managed C++,
Borland C# Builder, and Delphi.
As important as functionality, features and stability are, comprehensive documentation
is equally as important to the application developer. This is why the Ultimate
Encryptor for .NET product includes a Developer's Guide and a complete Technical
Reference which documents every property, method and event supported by
the component. A printable version of the documentation is included with the product,
as well as context-sensitive online help which can be accessed directly from within
the development environment.
Complete sample applications in VB.NET, C#, and ASP.NET
In addition to the fully documented Developer's Guide and a complete Technical Reference,
Ultimate Encryptor component also includes a number of samples with
full source code which help you become familiar with the features of
the component and provide code which you can re-use in your own applications.
ComponentPro understands today's software development requirements which often require
support for multiple operating systems and different programming languages. As with
all ComponentPro components, the product is licensed to a single developer, and
applications built using the Encryptor component can be redistributed to as many end-users as
needed without additional royalties or runtime licensing fees. Developers
are also permitted to install the product on different development systems as long
as they are the only one using it and there is no chance that it can be used by
more than one developer at the same time.
