DES Cryptography Block Cipher from Delphi

As we know, there are many cryptographic application available in this world. Some of it are commercially, while the rest is free to used by. Well, I was interested on this subject since my curiosity about how to encode and decode a file. This article occasionally intended to my own self after being built a simple cryptography application using Data Encryption Standard (DES) 128 bit algorithms for couple years ago.

The DES method is one of the best way to secure your file. It's workflow is quite simple. To encode, give a string as your digital sign key and embed it into the file. While to decode, give again the string to put back the original file. The initialization procedure to create the block cipher you can see as shown below:

procedure CreateBlockCipher;
const BlockCiphers: array
[0..1] of TBlockCipherClass = (TDESCipher, TBlowfishCipher);
var Key: Int64;
with TDoubleDWORD(Key) do
R := $01234567;
L :=
FBlockCipher :=
Next below will explain you how to encode and decode the file

Input := TFileStream.Create(InputFileName, fmOpenRead);
Input.Seek(0, soFromBeginning);
InputSize := Input.Size;

Output := TFileStream.Create(OutputFileName,
Output.Seek(0, soFromBeginning);
if ((Sender = btnEnkripsi)
or (Sender = Enkripsi1)) then
FBlockCipher.EncryptStream(Input, Output)
FBlockCipher.DecryptStream(Input, Output);
And this is the picture of my application:

Next picture describes you the difference between the sample PDF file and the result file:
