Hermetic Systems releases a program for secure end-to-end email encryption

Despite substantiated reports that at least one major US telephone service provider gave the National Security Agency full access to its customers’ phone calls, and shunted its customers’ internet traffic to data-mining equipment installed in a secret room in its San Francisco switching center, most Americans still transmit their email in plaintext, allowing it to be scanned by data-sniffers. (The NSA was ordered by a court to stop, but who knows if they complied?) This may be because most Americans don’t give much thought to the possibility that their email could be the subject of eavesdropping, or it could be because for some reason it doesn’t worry them, or it could be because encrypting email has in the past been a somewhat tricky practice to get right (so was deemed not worth the effort).

There are several reasons why email encryption can be difficult, or insecure: Some systems are quite secure but require an elaborate procedure before email can be sent to (and read by) another person. Messages scanned in transit can in the case of some systems reveal that encrypted information is present, thus alerting an eavesdropper to something to look for. Some systems encrypt a message only after it is uploaded to a server, with the message (in plaintext) being vulnerable to interception between the user’s PC and the server.

Hermetic Systems has release software for email encryption which involves none of these difficulties. But why would you want to use it? For correspondence with your family you probably don’t need to. But, for example, suppose you are collaborating with others in a project which requires an exchange of confidential information, which competitors might like to get their hands on. You might be wanting to transmit Excel files containing sensitive financial data, or images with blueprints for a new design.

The new software, entitled ‘Email Encryption End-to-End’, uses an encryption method in which the key used for encryption is the same as the key used for decryption, so your correspondent(s) must know the key you used to encrypt a message. This can be transmitted more-or-less securely, especially if you can meet your correspondent(s) in person. Assuming this can be accomplished, the actual sending and receiving of encrypted messages is quite simple. You run the program (on your PC), compose a message of up to 60 KB in size (or upload it to the program from a file) and specify an encryption key, then hit the ‘Encrypt’ button. This creates a ciphertext file (which you can name as anything you want), and to send it to a correspondent you simply attach it to an ordinary email message. The ciphertext can masquerade as an image file or as a file using some obscure file format, so there’s no indication that encryption is being used.

You correspondent receives the ordinary email, saves the attached (ciphertext) file, runs the software, tells it where to find the file, specifies the encryption (now decryption) key, and hits the ‘Decrypt’ button, whereupon the message appears.

Moreover, ‘Email Encryption End-to-End’ allows you to send, in addition to a text message, a file of any type and up to 1 MB in size. The text message and the file are then combined and encrypted together to produce the ciphertext file. This allows you to send an MS Word file, an Excel file, an image file, etc., in addition to the text message.

The program has an introductory price of US$29.75. A multi-user license is also available (at a discount) for up to 10 users. Such a license is useful for a group of colleagues working together on a single project. A multi-user license requires only a single email address, that of the purchaser of the license, and the email addresses of the purchaser’s email correspondent(s) are not needed.

A trial version can be freely downloaded from the user manual page athttp://www.hermetic.ch/eee/eee.htm. This is a 14-day trial with which only one key (‘abcd efgh ijkl mnop’) can be used for encryption, so it allows testing but (since the key is public knowledge) cannot be used for secure email encryption.

Hermetic Systems releases two new products: A tool for HTML table creation and software to hide data in PNG images

Hermetic Systems has released two new programs of interest to people who write their own web pages using tables and PNG images.

HTML Table Creator Tool: There are online table generators which generate code for simple HTML tables, but these are not adequate for creating complex tables with various cell sizes and contents. ‘HTML Table Creator Tool’ is an interactive TABLE generator which handles COLSPAN and ROWSPAN, thus enabling creation of complex tables with cells larger than 1 row by 1 column. Individual cell specifications can include cell content (which can itself include HTML code), font name, font size, color, alignment, etc. A cell specification can be copied to other cells, or all cells in a row or column, thus allowing rapid development of tables. Table specifications can be saved and later loaded for re-use. The user manual includes four mini-tutorials which demonstrate graphically the use of the program. Further information is available at: http://www.hermetic.ch/htc/htc.htm

Stego PNG: This is an easy-to-use steganography program which allows you to hide a file of any type (text, image, spreadsheet, etc.) in a PNG image file (with the use of an encryption key), so that the appearance of the image is unchanged and the presence of the hidden file is undetectable. The hidden file can be extracted only by someone who knows the key used to hide it. This is useful for hiding a copyright notice (or a message) in a PNG image on a web page. For example, suppose you have taken a lot of great photos and uploaded them (as PNG files) to some website which is viewed by many people. If you wish to add a copyright to an image, but don’t wish to add visible text to the image then you can add a ‘watermark’ in the sense of hiding a copyright notice within the image. If you later find your photo has been used by someone on some web page without your permission then you can download the image and verify that your copyright notice can be extracted from the file, then you can inform the unauthorized user of this. Your copyright notice can also be in the form of an image file. Further information is available at: http://www.hermetic.ch/stpng/stpng.htm

Enhanced Word- and Phrase-Counting Software Released by Hermetic Systems

Hermetic Word Frequency Counter Advanced Version is a Windows program which has been published for several years by Hermetic Systems. It allows a user to define what characters may appear in a word, and it counts all words or selected words and phrases in one or more text and text-like files (including HTML and XML files). Common words such as ‘the’ can be ignored. Results can be displayed in a variety of formats, and can be exported to a file which can be read into Excel for further processing. The program can also create an Excel-readable table of the frequencies of words vs. files in which they occur. (There is also a basic version which counts all words in a single file.)

Hermetic Systems has now released a version of this program which counts not only all words in multiple files but also counts all phrases. Or more exactly, all phrases consisting of a user-specified number of words (minimum to maximum) which occur at least a user-specified number of times.

Both the basic and advanced versions have proven useful to many people for a variety of purposes, such as creating a concordex from a corpus of texts, creating an index for a book, or simply finding what words and phrases occur most often in a file or in a set of files.

User licenses for both the basic and the advanced versions are available as 3-month, 1-year and perpetual licenses. A perpetual user license for the Advanced Version costs US$59.75 (a license for the basic version costs US$38.75). The product page for the Advanced Version is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca.htm and a description of the new count-all-phrases function is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca/phrases.htm A trial version is freely downloadable.

Celerant Technology, a leader in the retail software industry, received confirmation that the company has been named as a Visa and PCI Certified vendor and is now included in Visa’s list of Validated Payment Applications.

“We are very proud to be recognized as a PCI Certified vendor,” stated Ian Goldman, Celerant President and CEO“Our software has been tested and re-tested to confirm adherence to the regulations required by the PCI Council. We consider it is important to provide our clients with peace of mind and security by ensuring that sensitive card holder information is kept private and have worked diligently to achieve this certification.”

After the testing is complete, the vendor or merchant may be qualified for certification.

According to the Overview of PCI Requirements, “PCI security standards are technical and operational requirements set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to protect cardholder data.” It goes on to say, “The standards apply to all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data—with the guidance for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions.”

As a certified provider of payment processing software, Celerant Technology is now able to present an even more advanced solution to its clients.
