cipher-info program describes the format and characteristics of one or more encrypted files. It also reports if the file is incomplete or corrupt. The information returned includes the file name, the protocol, the ID and length of the key, the cipher type, the cipher mode, the hash, ithe entropy type and level, and finally the chunksize and timestamp.
We list a few examples of the
cipher-info command here to illustrate its usefulness and ease of use. To get started, lets identify a ciphertext file:
Filename: README.cip Cipher: type: AES mode: CTR nonce: 85b5546f57c760620000000000000000 Authenticate: method: Secret Key: hash: SHA256 length: 512 session: b69f10215a7b65043faa45443017a8fccacecdd04073d1b9895bdd3a5eb8ace1 Entropy Generator: type: BZip level: 6 Keyed-Hashed Message Authentication Code: hash: SHA256 Random Generator: hash: SHA256 Chunksize: 8kb Dates: modify: 2009-01-19T20:41:19-05:00 create: 2009-01-23T15:10:47-05:00 timestamp: 2009-01-23T15:13:44-05:00 Protocol: 1.0 Version: WizardsToolkit 1.0.6 01/23/08 https://urban-warrior.org
