gcipher - a simple encryption tool
gcipher [CIPHEROPTIONS]... [INPUT] [OUTPUT]
gcipher [CIPHEROPTIONS]... -p
PROXIEDHOST PROXIEDPORT LISTENINGPORT
(-c | -C) CIPHER [-k KEY]
"-" may be used for either INPUT or OUTPUT to represent
STDIN or STDOUT respectively.
- Show the GUI:
- Encrypt a file using the Gie cipher:
gcipher -c Gie inputfile outputfile
- Decrypt STDIN and output to STDOUT using Rot13:
gcipher -C Rot -k 13
- Listen on port 1027 and act as a proxy for port 1028 on gnu.org. Decrypt the data coming from gnu.org and encrypt data going to gnu.org using Vigenere with key linux:
gcipher -c Vigenere -k linux -p gnu.org 1028 1027
This is a simple encryption tool to work with home-grown encryption algorithms.
It can run as either a GUI, a command-line application, or a network proxy.
- -c CIPHER
encrypt using the given cipher
- -C CIPHER
decrypt using the given cipher
- -k KEY
set the key for the previous cipher
- -p PROXIEDHOST PROXIEDPORT LISTENINGPORT
act as a network proxy
a simple cipher doable by hand; no key is required
Julius Ceasar's code; no key is required
linear rotation; the amount of the rotation is given by the key which must be a
number in the range [0, 25]
a version of ROT that uses a private key; the key must be made of lower-case
