    Q&A 28: We need to use the PGP encryption option in Limagito File Mover

    Q: We need to use the PGP encryption option that I understand that the software is capable of. Can you please send me a manual or instructions note on how to configure?

    A: Some screenshots to get you started:

    Please add WIN as Destination

    Limagito File Mover WIN as Destination

    Select the WIN Destination Directory (Setup Tab):

    Limagito File Mover Select WIN as Destination Folder

    Select Crypto Tab and Enable PGP Encryption (red markers):

    Limagito File Mover Enable PGP encryption

    Select PGP tab. In the following screenshot we used Passphrase as encryption type. Also Public Key for encryption is possible.

    How-To AES-256 Encrypt and Decrypt Files in LimagitoX File Mover

    We’ve added the following AES-256 Encrypt and Decrypt Pascal Script functions in v2020.2.29.0:

    • Function psSimpleDecryptFile(Source, Destination, Key: String; IVAtBeginning: Boolean): Boolean;
    • Function psSimpleEncryptFile(Source, Destination, Key: String; IVAtBeginning: Boolean): Boolean;

    psSimpleEncryptFile and psSimpleDecryptFile can be used to cypher/decypher any file content using AES-256 as encryption standard. The code uses a safe block chaining mode like CFB and PKCS7 padding. If ‘IVAtBeginning‘ is TRUE, a random Initialization Vector will be computed, and stored at the beginning of the output binary buffer. It will generate the binary key using SHA-256 over the supplied ‘Key’ string, and will use AES-NI hardware instructions if your CPU supports it.

    Some screenshots to get you started. Let’s begin with the encryption script. Source will be the directory of files you want to Encrypt. As Destination you’ll need to add a Pascal Script.

    The Script itself, don’t forget to adjust the ctOut path and the ctKey Const:

    Const
      ctOut = 'C:\Test\Out\Encrypted\';
      ctKey = '*-+Key0123456789';
    Begin
      // ... add your code here
      If psSimpleEncryptFile(psFilePath+psFilename, ctOut+psFileName, ctKey, True) then
      Begin
        psExitCode:= 1;
        psLogWrite(1, '', 'Encryption Successful: ' + psFilename + psFilePath);
      End
      Else
      Begin
        psExitCode:= 0;
        psLogWrite(1, '', 'Encryption Error: ' + psFilePath + psFilename);
      End;
    End.

    AES-256.Encryption.Setup

    In case you want to Decrypt Files, Source will be the directory containg the encrypted files (AES-256). As Destination you’ll need to add a different Pascal Script. Same here, don’t forget to adjust the ctOut path and the ctKey Const.

    Const
      ctOut = 'C:\Test\Out\Encrypted\Decrypted\';
      ctKey = '*-+Key0123456789';
    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      If psSimpleDecryptFile(psFilePath+psFilename, ctOut+psFileName, ctKey, True) then
      Begin
        psExitCode:= 1;
        psLogWrite(1, '', 'Decryption Successful: ' + psFilename);
      End
      Else
      Begin
        psExitCode:= 0;
        psLogWrite(1, '', 'Decryption Error: ' + psFilename);
      End;
    End.
