SYNOPSIS

gcipher

gcipher [CIPHEROPTIONS]... [INPUT] [OUTPUT]

gcipher [CIPHEROPTIONS]... -p PROXIEDHOST PROXIEDPORT LISTENINGPORT
CIPHEROPTIONS:
  (-c | -C) CIPHER [-k KEY]
"-" may be used for either INPUT or OUTPUT to represent STDIN or STDOUT respectively.

EXAMPLES

Show the GUI:
  gcipher
Encrypt a file using the Gie cipher:
  gcipher -c Gie inputfile outputfile
Decrypt STDIN and output to STDOUT using Rot13:
  gcipher -C Rot -k 13
Listen on port 1027 and act as a proxy for port 1028 on gnu.org. Decrypt the data coming from gnu.org and encrypt data going to gnu.org using Vigenere with key linux:
  gcipher -c Vigenere -k linux -p gnu.org 1028 1027

DESCRIPTION

This is a simple encryption tool to work with home-grown encryption algorithms. It can run as either a GUI, a command-line application, or a network proxy.
-c CIPHER
  encrypt using the given cipher
-C CIPHER
  decrypt using the given cipher
-k KEY set the key for the previous cipher
-p PROXIEDHOST PROXIEDPORT LISTENINGPORT
  act as a network proxy

CIPHERS

Gie a simple cipher doable by hand; no key is required
Caesar Julius Caesar’s code; no key is required
Rot linear rotation; the amount of the rotation is given by the key which must be a number in the range [0, 25]
Vigenere
  a version of ROT that uses a private key; the key must be made of lower-case letters
