Software Tool Updates

I've updated several tools today. The changes include a bug fix and a small expansion of capability as listed below. :)

Oh, and an update to the Secure Parcel Delivery program is on the way.



MyCryptInfo -> version 1.4

The tool is expanded to detect more block cipher modes of operation. That is, the algorithms employed to make a block cipher encrypt a chunk of data bigger than the native block size. I noticed that some new modes had been added in the Microsoft header files since last I looked. Although these modes don't seem to be available with the Microsoft native Cryptographic Service Providers (CSPs), they must be available in some third party CSPs. The modes added are:

  • CBCI - ANSI CBC Interleaved
  • CFBP - ANSI CFB Pipelined
  • OFBP - ANSI OFB Pipelined
  • CBCOFM - ANSI CBC + OF Masking
  • CBCOFMI - ANSI CBC + OFM Interleaved

MyNetwork -> version 1.3

Fixed a bug in the formatting of the lease times for interfaces with DHCP enabled. This turned out to be a 32-bit to 64-bit portability issue on windows.

MTFileTransfer -> version 1.3

Fixed the same bug in the formatting of the lease times for interfaces with DHCP enabled.
