The MarshallSoft AES Library for Visual Basic (AES4VB) is a toolkit that allows software developers to easily implement 256-bit encryption and decryption in Windows Visual Basic applications. AES4VB is a component (DLL) library that provides an easy interface to encrypt/decrypt files and data using the 256-bit Rijndael "Advanced Encryption Standard" (AES) as specified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).The AES algorithm is commonly used by many financial entities such as banks to protect their customer's sensitive information. Some of the features of AES4VB are: - Performs 256-bit AES encryption and decryption. - Does key generation from password phrases. - Encrypts and decrypt files, strings, and byte data. - Supports PKCS7 padding. - Supports initialization vectors. - Supports CBC (Cipher Block Chaining) mode. - Supports ECB (Electronic Cookbook) mode. - Supports SHA-256 cryptographic hash algorithm. - Does random byte data generation. - Allows concurrent encryption/decryption threads. - Validated using "known answer tests" published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. - Includes multiple Visual Basic example programs. - Does not depend on support libraries (calls to core Windows API functions only). - Royalty free distribution with your compiled application. - C source code is available. - Free technical support and updates for one year. - Fully functional evaluation version available. - Works with 32-bit Visual Basic 4.0 through Visual Basic 6.0. - Works with 32-bit and 64-bit Visual Basic through Visual Studio 2015. - Works with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows through Windows 10.
Fixed problem in aesMakeUserKey() using AES_SHA256_METHOD. Added AES_MIXED_METHOD method to aesMakeUserKey(). Added aesSetInteger() and AES_SET_SEED that seeds the random number generator. Added aesShredFile() that shreds (overwrites with zeros then delet
