Data security is of utmost importance when dealing with sensitive information. Encryption plays a vital role in safeguarding data from unauthorized access. In this technical blog, we will explore how to encrypt and decrypt files in Swift using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. We will provide a Swift implementation that demonstrates the encryption and decryption process using a symmetric key.
This tutorial allow you to create a simple macOS status bar application (with registered file handle: “Open with…”) for crypt and encrypt file, instantly and easily:
AES Encryption and Decryption:
AES is a widely used encryption algorithm that provides a strong level of security. It operates on fixed-size blocks of data and supports key sizes of 128, 192, and 256 bits. AES uses symmetric encryption, meaning the same key is used for both encryption and decryption.Read More
