Protect data transfer from sniffers

10 posts in this topic

Hi here

There's someway to protect data against packet sniffers?

the connection is in http, without ssl encrypt :s, do I need to implement ssl protocol or is possible to do it without ssl?

thanks in advance :)


Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

clear text is clear text transmissions have to be understood by both side so you need to encrypt ssl or ssh etc. so that the guy in the middle does not understand no way around it

the sensitive data is sent in plain text, so I need to change the server in order it understands the input data :s (install ssl or ssh like you said)

Encrypt -> base64/Hex-encode (make it 'plain') -> send -> decode -> decrypt

Although ssl is much better of course.

Hehehe. Well, if you're not shy of OOP php can be quite some fun :)

For the base64 encoding you can use the builtin functions base64_encode and base64_decode and for encryption look at mcrypt. I could whip up a really quick example but hey, this is the AutoIt forum. Besides, you'll learn more and better doing it yourself ;)

Btw, if you're in need of a local test server I'd recommend USBWebserver, comes with everything you need and portable!

Looks pretty good that, if it is free, you might want to consider posting the link in the thread.

If it is not already there of course.

base64 is easy to decrypt, any kid can go to a online service of base64 decoding and decode the string :)

thanks for the help/ideias :)
