Then for each Part you add to the multipart upload, you will need to encrypt it and do the reverse at the other end

I am uploading only one file at a time. How can a file be encrypted & decrypted? Any algorithms?

You need to operate on the stream. See http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/javax.crypto/DesFile.html

In the example given by CEHJ
I want give my own key, think "sandeepxyz123"
I dont want to use the key generated by
KeyGenerator.getInstance("DES").generateKey();

Actually The encryption part is at the client end & decryption part is at the server end.
The keys used in both the case should be the same.
How can I know it?

You can't. You'd have to tell them the key. That's just one of the many reasons you should use SSL - it handles the keys (and everything else) for you
