Ancient crypto? You really have no effing clue, do you?
Whatever you use today, it will be ancient in 5 years.
why not start cracking it now
May I have source for the decryptor?
do something that would actually be useful
Just lending a clue, always a pleasure! I been there done that with
encrypted files in public places (back in the day, I used a
webserver). I ended up concluding what I told you - that anyone who
downloaded it could spend as long as they wanted attacking it, with
whatever tech, and there is no revocation function. So I stopped
doing it. These days I use SSH (and VNC if I want access to Windows
machines), or USB, if internet connectivity is not a given.
Not to mention polluting the net with mountains of your private data,
your cloud actually consists of other people's servers, who have
generously provided them to host archives of meaningful discussion,
and whose goodwill you will certainly consume, along with their
diskspace. End users still receive and store a copy of your data,
but this cannot be accessed by you, and is useless.
And, if everyone did it of course there would be massive storage
usage, followed by a magic regex to block those mails, and the cloud
So, no, insecure, waste of bandwidth and storage, unscalable.
