  • Blowfish encryption problem

    Hi all,
    I made an AMS app that works with encrypted files (using Blowfish).
    I would share these files with another app (written in VB6) but there is one problem: files encrypted with VB6 app are not compatible with AMS app and viceversa.
    This is due to the Blowfish algorithm that can be executed in varoius cipher block methods (Electronic Codebook, Cipher Block Chaining, etc). Anyone knows which method is used by AMS?

    Knowing the method I can set it in the VB6 app so the files would be compatible with both apps

    IIRC it's CBC but it's been a long time since I've looked at it.

    This thread had some info that might be useful:

      Just a note for posterity: it's ECB, and not really intended to be secure, since nothing running in an embedded Lua interpreter can be.
