Ubuntu is composed of many software packages, the vast majority of which are distributed under a free software license. The only exceptions are some proprietary hardware drivers.The main license used is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which, along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL), explicitly declares that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software. On the other hand, there is also proprietary software available that can run on Ubuntu. Ubuntu focuses on usability, security and stability. The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation. Ubuntu also emphasizes accessibility and internationalization to reach as many people as possible.

Gcipher is a simple encryption tool to work with home-grown encryption algorithms.

Saturday, January 19, 2013

gcipherGcipher is a simple "encryption" tool to work with common simple encryption algorithms (ROT13, Caesar, Vigenère, ...)

Gcipher does not provide any strong encryption and should not be used to encrypt any private data.Gcipher can run as either a GUI, a command-line application, or a network proxy.

Install gcipher in Ubuntu
sudo aptitude install gcipher
This will complete the installation

Using gcipher

gcipher Examples
Encrypt a file using the Gie cipher:
gcipher -c Gie inputfile outputfile
Decrypt STDIN and output to STDOUT using Rot13:
gcipher -C Rot -k 13

Listen on port 1027 and act as a proxy for port 1028 on gnu.org. Decrypt the data coming from gnu.org and encrypt data going to gnu.org using Vigenere with key linux:
gcipher -c Vigenere -k linux -p gnu.org 1028 1027

Available CIPHERS

Gie -- a simple cipher doable by hand; no key is required
Ceasar -- Julius Ceasar's code; no key is required
Rot -- linear rotation; the amount of the rotation is given by the key which must be a number in the range [0, 25]
Vigenere -- a version of ROT that uses a private key; the key must be made of lower-case letters

Available options
-c CIPHER -- encrypt using the given cipher
-C CIPHER -- decrypt using the given cipher
-k KEY -- set the key for the previous cipher
