SFX Creator encrypts and packs your files into an unbreakable self-executing EXE file. Apart from using the latest state-of-the-art encryption methods (such as Rijndeal AES, Serpent, Twofish, or Blowfish), it adds a 64-byte random number to your already encrypted password.

This free utility uses the latest encryption systems to provide you with a reliable solution to protect your sensitive data, especially when sent via e-mail. It supports 256-bit Twofish, 448-bit Blowfish, 1248-bit Mars, and up to 2048-bit RC6 ciphers to encrypt your data and password. As an extra precaution, the program will create a 64-byte random number which is checked together with your password, as a double-check measure prior to allowing the EXE file to extract your data.

As a bonus, SFX Creator comes with a useful random password generator, which you can use to protect the self-executable files created with it. When creating new passwords you can set the length of the password and the case of the letters to be used. Besides, you are allowed to use special symbols and numerals, as well as symbols defined by you. The generated passwords can be easily stored for later use.

Finally, and in order to allow you to send your encrypted EXE file without running the risk of it being rejected by e-mail servers for security reasons, you are also offered the possibility of wrapping up your file using a ZIP or a CAB container.
