sencrypt 3

sencrypt and sdecrypt are utilities for encrypting and decrypting data with the AES, DES, 3DES, and RC4 algorithms. It can read keys from files or ask for a passphrase and use that together with a salt to derive a key using the PBKDF2 key derivation function. sencrypt and sdecrypt are portable and compatible reimplementations of the encrypt and decrypt utilities in Solaris/Illumos-based operating systems.
