TEncryptedIniFile: easy to use class for handling app settings with encryption in Delphi – TMS Software Blog

I wonder how that works with encryption algorithms based on thin Delphi wrappers around proven open source encryption libraries.

PS: Note the G+ link died. Not sure why, but that’s why I archived the original as a WayBack link when writing this post.

    “Extra steps could be taken to use an AES key that is a combination of a unique machine ID…” Why? Just generate a pure random key (using a good random generator, of course). Derived key can be guessed, when you have the code. Then use the underlying OS features to store the key safely – i.e. CryptProtectData() under Windows, or a Linux keyring. Read the key only when you need it, and then destroy it clearing the memory.

      Thanks for noticing that. It is exactly why I archive so many links with [WayBack] or [Archive.is] tags: too many links suddenly disappearing.
