Currently I'm using Toucan 1.2, and have found it an exceptionally useful portable software for my thumb-drive since its first release. And of course, I'm really grateful that AES encryption is added in this version.
However, I would like to know more about the AES encryption in this version of Toucan. What method is it using to encrypt files? Cipher-block chaining, CBC? Cipher feedback, CF? Other than that, is it a 128-bit, 192-bit or 256-bit AES encryption algorithm?
Anyway, these are some suggestions for the future versions of Toucan.
- Ability to encrypt folders (without encrypting the files in it), making these folders inaccessible.
- Adopt more encryption algorithms.
- Having a GUI manager to list/record/show previously encrypted files (with its encryption method and, the time and date when it was encrypted). This does save me a lot of time whenever I wish to decrypt those previously encrypted files.
- Using stronger encryption algorithms. Let's just say that this version uses 128-bit AES, then why not use 256-bit AES instead in the future versions?
- Modify the Browse menu (on the left under the Secure tab). Sometimes I find it rather confusing while using it, why not ask other users about this too?
- Renaming Rijndael to AES. Well, it doesn't really matter that much, since they're both the same thing. But I think AES sounds way cooler and more universal.
- Making Toucan more customizable. Let's just ask other users about it.
These are just some of my suggestions. Hopefully you do consider those suggestions I mentioned above. And of course, I'd love to continue contributing more of my ideas soon.
