RC4 - on the roadmap?


#1

Hi there,

I noticed that Juce provides BlowFish 'cryption. Cool. How about RC4 as well, is that on the roadmap…?

I’m not really much of a cryptography buff, and haven’t actually heard of RC4 - is it good!?

It is as all of these kinds of schemes: pros and cons.

It is quick and simple, but not the most secure system. It is used heavily with streaming data though, and that makes it rather interesting. Oh well, there are a fair number of libs out there, and since RC4 is simple it could be done on “home-basis”… It’s just nice to have everything under one hat, and Juce is my kind of hat :slight_smile:
