Password support for Packer lib

Post by PB »

Since we can't use Gnozal's PureZIP lib anymore, can password support
please be added to the Packer lib so we can protect our archives? Ta.
I compile using 5.31 (x86) on Win 7 Ultimate (64-bit).

and when doing so... support for ZIP > 2 GB would be very suitable too.

I don't see the point. Why not just use your own password routine and not unpack if it doesn't match? :?

Can you elaborate? I don't understand how that would work.
Are you saying we should encrypt each file manually before
adding to the archive? Where does the password get stored?

I supposed the people here wanted the same encryption used by zip 2.0 (since Gnozal's lib is mentioned) to have the files zip-compatible, even if the implementation of the algo is flawed (known plaintext attack).
