JCrypTool enables students, teachers, developers, and anyone else interested in cryptography to apply and analyze cryptographic algorithms in a modern, easy-to-use application. The JCT plaform creates a new way of e-learning by not just encouraging users to learn about cryptography and apply the algorithms themselves, but also to develop their own cryptographic plug-ins and extend the JCrypTool platform in new directions.
JCrypTool installation is very simple: download and extract the zip-archive, launch the main program and get started. No administration rights are needed for the installation. Only an installed Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is required.
