This project uses JAVA, TCP/IP Protocol Suite, Windows Based JVM
The purpose of this project is to develop IDEA Cipher system. The goal of the IDEA Cipher is to provide an interactive environment for the users. The aim of the IDEA Cipher is to secure the confidential information from the Hackers/Intruders trying to tamper it.
This project is totally enhanced with the features that enable us to feel the real-time environment. As the today’s world is mostly employing the latest networking techniques instead of using stand-alone pc’s. As every product possessing advantages might also have some disadvantages. The advantages with the networking are that a company can share files or data without need to use some external devices to carry the data. Similarly, a company can share the single costly printer. Likely, the disadvantages are also numerous. Somebody writes a program and can make the costly printer to misprint the data. Similarly, some unauthorized user may get access over the network and may perform any illegal functions like deleting some of the sensitive information like employee salary details, while they are in transaction. Our project has some of the features described as follows:
The project makes use of the secured networking concepts that will make the sensitive information to be encrypted (converted) in such a manner that will not be understood by the unauthorized user who gains access over this information. To read the information one must decrypt the encrypted information in a pre-specified manner. Only sender and receiver both can have the systematic way of access to the information. One time secret key is being exchanged between sender and receiver, using public key encryption concept, before the actual data being sent.
This project is developed for academic purpose, so it has some limitations. Though it gives a complete picture about network security algorithms. The zip file contains full project source code.
Comments/Suggestions are invited. Happy coding......!
