How can i generate a uneque 12 char coded string.

10 posts in this topic

I'd like to generate a 12 character encrypted string that would always be 12 char and would always be uneque based on the password and keyword given.

The problem with _StringEncrypt is that the lenght is based on the keyword so longer keywords would generate massive codes.

It's up to you to implement a propitary encryption method...You can really do anythign you want!

For instance-

MsgBox(0,"Encrypted string",CryptString("Hello World"))

Func CryptString($string)
    $Return=""
    for $a=1 to StringLen($string)
        $Return&=Chr(Asc(StringMid($string,$a,1))+1)
    Next
    Return $Return
EndFunc

That's just basic encryption. you can mess around with it however you wish or use an existing method that suits your needs...but don't expect someone to write you a custom encryption routine from scratch :D

(although these forums are a freindly place so you might get lucky)

hrm i dont really have any experience with any encryption methods. that also doesnt solve the problem of being a fixed number of characters each time regardless of the password/keyword.

If your not going to decrypt it, why not just cut the encrypted string off after 12 characters?

bhat about for things that result in less then 12 chars? a fixed list of ammendable chars doesnt seem like htat good an idea.

also it appears as though the result of _StringEncrypt is that each passcode char is encrypted into 4 chars. so if i cut it off at 12 char the string abcd would return the same as abcde or abcq

basically i'm trying to make an app version of this web site: http://www.hashapass.com/

here's the code i wrote:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <string.au3>
GUICreate ( 'Passgen' , 280 , 135 )
GUICtrlCreateLabel ( 'Keyword (Reminds you of what the password is used for)' , 3 , 3 )
$keyword=GUICtrlCreateInput ( '' , 3 , 20 , 275 )
GUICtrlCreateLabel ( 'Passcode (Keep secret used to encode)' , 3 , 43 )
$passcode=GUICtrlCreateInput ( '' , 3 , 60 , 275 , -1 , $ES_AUTOHSCROLL + $ES_LEFT + $ES_PASSWORD )
$button=GUICtrlCreateButton ( 'Create Password' , 3 , 83 , 275 )
$output=GUICtrlCreateInput ( '' , 3 , 110, 275 , 20 , $ES_READONLY )
GUISetState()
HotKeySet ( '{ENTER}' , '_Encrypt' )
While WinActive ( 'Passgen' )
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $button
            _Encrypt()
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd
Func _Encrypt ()
    $encrypted = _StringEncrypt ( 1 , GUICtrlRead ( $keyword ) , GUICtrlRead ( $passcode ) )
    GUICtrlSetData ( $output , $encrypted )
    ClipPut ( $encrypted )
EndFunc

While 1
    If MsgBox(4, 'Testing Password', 'Your Password is: ' & _GeneratePassword() & @CRLF & 'Would you like to generate another?') = 7 Then Exit
WEnd

Func _GeneratePassword($s_SpecialCharacters = "#,$,?", $s_Dilemeter = ',', $i_PasswordLen = 12, $n_Lower_az = 3, $n_Upper_AZ = 3, $n_Numb09 = 3, $n_SpecialChar = 3)
    If $n_Lower_az + $n_Upper_AZ + $n_Numb09 + $n_SpecialChar <> $i_PasswordLen Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Local $s_Character = StringSplit($s_SpecialCharacters, $s_Dilemeter)
    Local $i_StringLenSC = StringLen(StringReplace($s_SpecialCharacters, $s_Dilemeter, ''))
    Local $i_Random[3], $s_Password = '', $i_Count[5]
    Do
        $i_Random[1] = Random(1, 4, 1)
        If $i_Random[1] = 1 And $i_Count[1] < $n_Lower_az Then
            $i_Count[1] += 1
            $i_Random[2] = Random(1, 26, 1)
            $s_Password &= Chr($i_Random[2] + 96)
        ElseIf $i_Random[1] = 2  And $i_Count[2] < $n_Upper_AZ Then
            $i_Count[2] += 1
            $i_Random[2] = Random(1, 26, 1)
            $s_Password &= Chr($i_Random[2] + 64)
        ElseIf $i_Random[1] = 3  And $i_Count[3] < $n_Numb09 Then
            $i_Count[3] += 1
            $i_Random[2] = Random(0, 9, 1)
            $s_Password &= $i_Random[2]
        ElseIf $i_Random[1] = 4  And $i_Count[4] < $n_SpecialChar Then
            $i_Count[4] += 1
            $i_Random[2] = Random(1, $i_StringLenSC, 1)
            $s_Password &= $s_Character[$i_Random[2]]
        EndIf
    Until StringLen($s_Password) = $i_PasswordLen
    Return $s_Password
EndFunc

Edit2:

Been a while since I used that, cleaned it up just a little.

Here's another option looking at your GUI, you'll have to think of something good for the keyword thing...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <string.au3>
GUICreate ( 'Passgen' , 280 , 135 )
GUICtrlCreateLabel ( 'Keyword (Reminds you of what the password is used for)' , 3 , 3 )
$keyword=GUICtrlCreateInput ( '' , 3 , 20 , 275 )
GUICtrlCreateLabel ('Passcode (Keep secret used to encode)' , 3 , 43 )
$passcode=GUICtrlCreateInput ( '' , 3 , 60 , 275 , -1 , $ES_AUTOHSCROLL + $ES_LEFT + $ES_PASSWORD )
GUICtrlSetLimit($passcode, 6, 6);;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Note the limit set ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
$button=GUICtrlCreateButton ( 'Create Password' , 3 , 83 , 275 )
$output=GUICtrlCreateInput ( '' , 3 , 110, 275 , 20 , $ES_READONLY )
GUISetState()
HotKeySet ( '{ENTER}' , '_Encrypt' )
While WinActive ( 'Passgen' )
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $button
            _Encrypt()
            MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'Just to show it can be converted back' & @CR & _ConvertMask(GUICtrlRead($output)))
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd
Func _Encrypt ()
    $Mask = _ConvertString(GUICtrlRead($passcode))
    GUICtrlSetData ($output , $Mask)
    ClipPut($Mask)
EndFunc

Func _ConvertString($sText, $iMask = 20)
    Local $vOutPut
    For $iCount = 1 To StringLen($sText)
        $vOutPut &= Chr(Asc(StringMid($sText, $iCount, 1))+$iMask)
    Next
    Return _StringToHex($vOutPut)
EndFunc

Func _ConvertMask($vText, $iMask = 20)
    $vText = _HexToString($vText)
    Local $vOutPut
    For $iCount = 1 To StringLen($vText)
        $vOutPut &= Chr(Asc(StringMid($vText, $iCount, 1))-$iMask)
    Next
    Return $vOutPut
EndFunc
Edit:

Didn't paste the whole code.

Well, then fill up your unencrypted data with some defined text until the encrypted data will allways generate at least 12 characters. That's called padding.
