Hi expert,
i'm looking for a PGP java implementation that support stream, because i want to process very big files, cryptix doesnt support that, only in memory document. I looked at SlimPGP and XGP, they are not usable. So now i have 3 choice: Use a PGP software in command line, find a good java library or find a pgp daemon, i mean an application where i can connect thru tcp-ip, stream my file and receive the result from the socket.(i may be dreaming...)

Any suggestion?

Thanks

becide the dreaming, AFAIK best is to start with a system (command-line) call within your java prog.

Well, there are some alternatives:

- http://www.cryptography.ch/uni/pgpjava/ (JNI wrapper around PGP)

- http://www.cryptix.org/ (Cryptix suite of tools)

- finally, JCE (Java Cryptography Extension) is available from http://java.sun.com

Does that seem enough?

Cheers,

Finally, i'm using GnuPG with Runtime.getRuntime().exec("gpg -d..."), then i retrieve the process Input and output Stream to stream the file in and out, it's working well...
