"ENCRYPTRSA" or "ERSA" - Encrypt file(s) using public key

Encrypt files using public key file instead of password.





Possible Additional Switches

-ADDKEYHASH to add information (hash) of used public key. When the hash information is present in the encrypted file, it is possible to check the encrypted file against any public key file to determine what public key file was used for encryption (please use command CHECKPUBKEYRSA for this purpose)


a) encrypt all *.doc files in current folder using public key file of your friend John Doe.

AEPCMD encryptrsa="c:\rsakeys\john_doe_public_1024bit.aepkey"  *.doc

Note: only owner of john_doe_private_1024bit.aepkey file will be able to decrypt these *.doc files.

b) encrypt all JPG files in 'c:\my pictures' folder and all its subfolders. And then delete all original not-encrypted files

AEPCMD ersa="c:\rsakeys\john_doe_public_1024bit.aepkey" -destiny=d -r "c:\my pictures\*.jpg"
