Release Dates

  • August 6, 2016: First released to the public
  • Jan 11, 2017: Upgrades
    • When providing a [blank] Password, Encryption Version question will be skipped.
    • When Re-saving with a new Password or Encryption Version, now resaves all previous values for all Secrets. Before this upgrade, it would only save the latest value for each secret.

General Notes

  • The program uses non-standard encryption formula.
  • Each time a Secret is saved, the formula changes and so even if you save the same Secret over and over again, each save will be a different length, formula, etc.
  • There is no communication with the Internet within this program, i.e. it is not Cloud based, has no stats/verifications/or other outbound message to anyone/anywhere

Encryption Formula - Version 1 (code in c#)
    General notes on this formula: because the prepend/postpend bytes contain random lengths/values and these are used along with the Password, there is no place in the final encrypted value to 'brute force attack' the result, or create 'rainbow tables' against the values. The program also has no idea if your Password is correct or incorrect. It will unencrypt by the Password you provide and show the results. If your Password is wrong, you see the results wrong, i.e. the program cannot be used to try and 'find' the correct Password.
  • convert the Secret (i.e. Name, Group, Value) into a binary array
  • prepend a number of random bytes to the binary array, according to the size of the Password
  • combine all random byte values + Password byte values to produce a number, postpend that number of bytes to the end of the Secret
  • add the Random byte+Password byte+Secret byte to produce a new byte, for each Secret value byte
  • if byte is greater than 255, loop and decrease value until below 255
  • change all bytes in byte array into base 16 (code)(using letter from the site name 'TIMEFORYoUrmiNDt'), i.e. changing unreadable bytes into readable
  • re-run all security steps a 2nd time
Encryption Formula - Version 2 (code in c#)
    General notes on this formula: builds upon Version 1
  • (performs all of Version 1 steps first)
  • swaps (scrambles) the base 16 (code) bytes according to the Password. All bytes are scrambled, including the header/footer random ones.
