Encrypted Archive with BCArchive - Free File Encryption
Want to compress a bunch of documents into a single encrypted file for archiving?
Use BCArchive. Zip, Arj and RAR can compress files, but they can’t protect them from prying eyes like BCArchive can.

Compression utility supported by strong encryption
BCArchive utilizes the following encryption algorithms, standards and specifications:
- Symmetric algorithms: Rijndael (AES), Blowfish-256, Blowfish-448, IDEA, CAST5, GOST 28147-89, Triple DES.
- Secure Hash Algorithms: SHA-256, SHA-1, MD5 and RIPEMD-160.
- Asymmetric (public/secret key pair) algorithms: RSA, ElGamal / Diffie-Hellman.
- Specifications for public/secret key pair format: PKCS #12, X.509.
- PKCS #5 recommendations for the implementation of password-based cryptography.
- RFC 2440 specifications for session keys encrypted by symmetric or public key encryption algorithms.
BCArchive is very simple yet very secure - just specify a password for the archive when you create it and enter the same password to decrypt and extract the data. Passwords are no longer needed if you have your recipient’s public key - just choose your recipient’s public key and click Encode.
Use self-extracting archives - avoid the need for your recipient to install the software
BCArchive offers you the facility to create a 'self-extracting' file. Data is compressed and encrypted into a single archive file, which is converted to an executable program. At any time thereafter you or your recipient can run the program on any computer and extract the data without installing any special software.
