I am testing CallbackDisk and have one question

Can I password protect .st files ?

So that when user provides a password, .st file is loaded as drive.

On search I found that file encryption can be done, it will be too much of programming on read / write events.

Do you have a ready sample, may be using one or more of your other products. I mean using two products together.

Of course you can. Just encrypt the st-file with AES or other encryption algorithm and add to your OnRead and OnWrite callback code to encrypt/decrypt requested blocks.

There's no sample for encrypting CallbackDisk blocks, but SolFS provides built-in encryption. On the other hand, encrypting blocks in OnFileRead/OnFileWrite event handlers as Volodymyr has described is not much programming at all. You can take free CryptoBlackbox package of our SecureBlackbox product for encryption capabilities.

I downloaded SolFS but could not find CryptoBlackbox .

If these is some code in this forum or in CryptoBlackbox sample, it would be of great help

Unfortunately the free license keys included with the version 12, have not been updated. Please tell me what API you plan to use (.NET, C++, VCL) and I'll provide the updated key.

Thanks,

I could not see any download for VC++

There is vc++ Sample in CallBackDisc and to integrate both, I will need VC++ source / sample

Oops, we don't have CryptoBlackbox offer for C++. We offer only .NET, Java and VCL. You can go with full SecureBlackbox ( https://www.eldos.com/sbb/download-release.php ), it has C++ edition and correct key is included there.

Thanks.

I am unable to decide which sample will be best for integrating.

ZIP or PDF

OR I need to start from scratch.

Neither of them. You need some low-level cryptography mechanisms, like using AES encryption in secure modes.

Actually, you can use any encryption code, not necessarily SecureBlackbox.

If you have question about SecureBlackbox, please post them to the corresponding forum ( https://www.eldos.com/forum/list.php?FID=7 ) .
