«Hiron» is an application designed to provide the highest-level, long-term security to personal information sent over e-mail.
The most important distinguishing feature
of «Hiron» resides
in its cryptographic system of outstanding
strength. The project's goal is to ensure the level of protection that could stand all kinds of feasible attacks by use of available computing facilities during decades to come, bearing in mind the estimated progress in technology and cryptanalysis. To achieve this goal, «Hiron» employs a sophisticated cryptographic system that involves a series of strongest, well-proven cryptographic algorithms (such as Rijndael, Twofish, ...), which are incorporated as building-blocks in an innovative encryption technology. A higher-order elliptic curve is used for asymmetric (public key) encryption.
In addition, «Hiron» involves:
Unique encoding scheme
Protection against disassembling, decompiling, debugging, reverse engineering,
or tracing the application's normal functioning
Ability to handle documents without leaving any trace of their unencrypted forms
on data storage media
Simplicity in sending a document, either encrypted or not, by e-mail:
a single click on an appropriate toolbar button does the job.
The application was designed and implemented by a professional theoretical
physicist, who also is an experienced cryptography programmer.
