I don't. In very old versions it was a DES variant, but several years ago upgraded to something stronger. You may need to write the company for specifics.dave.kilroy wrote:@Richard do you (or anyone?) have any information on the encryption used in password protecting a stack? Yesterday I had to write a 'security statement' on how a LiveCode project I'm working on saved data to mobile devices, I was able to talk about the built-in encrypt() command and AES-256 (which I'm using to encrypt and decrypt locally saved data), but I couldn't find anything describing the protection used when password protecting a stack. I'm sure LiveCode don't want to have details of how they password protect stacks common knowledge, but is there an official company statement describing the process even in a vague way that I could reference?
That said, executable code is usually consider less important than user data. The algorithms of all applications can be disassembled from memory, but for user data LiveCode's encrypt/decrypt command support many current strong options.
