JCrypTool -- The cryptography e-learning platform
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.
The 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.
What is JCrypTool?
JCrypTool is an open-source e-learning platform, developed to not only let everybody experiment with cryptography, but to develop and extend the JCrypTool platform in various ways with their own crypto plug-ins.
