Securing Files Using AES AlgorithmInternational Journal of Computer Science and Information Technologies (2013)
Nowadays information systems play a vital role for organizations and individuals, in which the security is given the high priority. Often, solutions are developed for very similar problems over and over again. In this paper, the files are encrypted and stored in the disk by using a secret key and asking for the same secret key while decrypting. The algorithm used in this system is Advance Encryption Standard (AES). AES-128, AES-192 and AES-256 represents the encryption key sizes (128 bits, 192 bits and 256 bits) and in their number of rounds (10, 12, and 14, respectively) required to open the vault that is wrapped around the data. In this algorithm, encryption is done by interchanging some of the characters with key and data in it. The encrypted files are set to be read only, so that the data in the files cannot be tampered. The main feature of the system is disabling the delete option in the right click menu for the encrypted files. This provides more security for the files on the disk.
