Hex Conversion Tool

Recommended Posts


Well, I have been using Hex to encrypt passwords but not too lightly that way they don't show up in plain text. I needed an automated converter so that I can find it out for administration purposes. Here it is:

; AutoIt Version: BETA (Will Work With AutoIt v3 Non-Beta)
; Author:       Max Gardner(AutoIt Smith;king.of.all@comcast.net)
; Script Function:
;   Small Hex Utility
; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Local $WS_VSCROLL = 0x00200000
$GUI = GUICreate("Hex Converter", 340, 140, (@DesktopWidth - 340) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 140) / 2)
$String = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 320, 90, $WS_VSCROLL)
$StringToHex = GUICtrlCreateButton("StringToHex", 10, 110, 90, 20)
$HexToString = GUICtrlCreateButton("HexToString", 110, 110, 90, 20)
$CopyToClipboard = GUICtrlCreateButton("CopyToClipboard", 210, 110, 120, 20)
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $msg = $StringToHex
            GUICtrlSetData($String, _StringToHex(GUICtrlRead($String)))
        Case $msg = $HexToString
            GUICtrlSetData($String, _HexToString(GUICtrlRead($String)))
        Case $msg = $CopyToClipboard
            MsgBox(0, "Copied", "Text copied to clipboard.")
        Case Else
Func _StringToHex($strChar)
    Local $aryChar, $i, $iDec, $hChar, $file, $strHex
    $aryChar = StringSplit($strChar, "")
    For $i = 1 To $aryChar[0]
        $iDec = Asc($aryChar[$i])
        $hChar = Hex($iDec, 2)
        $strHex = $strHex & $hChar
    Return $strHex
EndFunc ;==>_StringToHex
Func _HexToString($strHex)
    Local $strChar, $aryHex, $i, $iDec, $Char, $file, $iOne, $iTwo
    $aryHex = StringSplit($strHex, "")
    If Mod($aryHex[0], 2) <> 0 Then
        Return -1
    For $i = 1 To $aryHex[0]
        $iOne = $aryHex[$i]
        $i = $i + 1
        $iTwo = $aryHex[$i]
        $iDec = Dec($iOne & $iTwo)
        If @error <> 0 Then
            Return -1
        $Char = Chr($iDec)
        $strChar = $strChar & $Char
    Return $strChar
EndFunc ;==>_HexToString

Hope you like, I know it's small and easy but whatever B)

Well the average person will not know about it, and first they have to decrypt the packet, then figure out WHAT it is encrypted in(hex) then decrypt that. This is just for the time being until I can write a more secure encryption engine. Plus it's not like someone will have access to the Master database file except the person who is running the server.

Storing the password in a file defeats the purpose of encrypting!
