FAQ

How does WIC work?

WIC use the AES-256-CBC and SHA-256 for the PBKDF2 derivation.

WIC’s focus is to offer an user friendly, intuitive and compatible way to enable encryption and decryption for everyone. It is you that decide who to share the secret password and iterations, which are needed to decrypt your encryption. Not a communication channel, and not an app. This enable users of WIC to share encrypted data over unsecured channels, for example in an email, social media, messaging apps, etc. WIC can also be used for long-term storage of sensitive data.

Does WIC use servers?

NO!

You choose who you trust. WIC is made to send or store encrypted messages and files confidentially between two parties, independently of any third part.

I have forgotten my password. What can I do?

It is not possible to recover your password.

WIC doesn’t store passwords or PBKDF2 keys. If you lose your password and iterations used, you can’t decrypt the message or file.

How does Save Hints work?

Only you can save hints, if you choose to do so. Try it out!

Use Save Hints before or after encryption/decryption. Hints include the number of iterations, length of the password used, and plaintext or the Base64 encoded text. This can be helpful to remind you of the what, who, when and how. Saved Hints are stored in the local directory of the app and can be deleted at anytime.

How does WIC encrypt a message and/or file?

Messages and files are encrypted using AES-256-CBC.

WIC takes a password, a random generated salt and the iteration value to create a key to encrypt a message or file. For more information about PBKDF2, please look into the specification of RFC 2898.

Can WIC encrypt a message and/or file that already have been encrypted?

There is no limit for how many times a message and/or file can be encrypted.

The only limit is the ability to remember, as both password and iterations can change between each encryption.

Is WIC compatible with other encrypt/decrypt software?

Yes! WIC is compatible with OpenSSL.

You may decrypt and encrypt between WIC and OpenSSL. Encryption are made with the AES-256-CBC algorithm using SHA-256 digest for the PBKDF2 key derivation function, and your choice of iterations.

What is this Base64 encoded text?

Base64 encoding is a way to represent binary data using text.

Base64 is designed to carry binary data across channels that only support text content, like email, messages or similar channels.

How do I encrypted a WIC compatible message and/or file in OpenSSL?

Use the Base64 encoding switch/option in OpenSSL for messages.

<code>openssl enc -AES-256-CBC -a -salt -iter 10001 -md SHA-256 -in mymessage.txt -out encrypted-and-base64-encoded.enc</code><hr><code>openssl enc -AES-256-CBC -salt -iter 10001 -md SHA-256 -in confidential.pdf -out encrypted-file.WIC</code>

How do I decrypt a WIC message and/or file in OpenSSL?

Use the Base64 encoding switch/option in OpenSSL for decrypted messages.

<code>openssl enc -d -AES-256-CBC -a -salt -iter 10001 -md SHA-256 -in encrypted-and-encoded-in.WIC -out mymessage.txt</code><hr><code>openssl enc -d -AES-256-CBC -salt -iter 10001 -md SHA-256 -in encrypted-file.WIC -out confidiential.pdf</code>
