RTEncoder is a software utility used to protect computer files. The purpose of this application is to allow a user to protect a computer file by encoding it into an RTE file. Then the RTE file would be sent to another user who would use RTEncoder to decode the RTE file back into the original computer file. The goal is that while protected in the RTE file, the original computer file can not be decoded by a user who is not authorized to view that file.

Several methods are available in RTEncoder to protect your source computer files. One such method is to use Key files to encode the original file, such that the identical Key files are needed to decode the RTE file. This process works by the encryption algorithm called a One-Time Pad. A similar approach is available in RTEncoder called a Key Phrase. In this case, a short phrase is used to generate a random stream of data which is used in a similar manner to a Key File.

Another protection method available in RTEncoder is the Blowfish encryption algorithm. When Encoding an RTE file, entering an Encryption Phrase will make use of a 64-bit symmetric encryption algorithm using the Blowfish standard. When Decoding, the user will need to know the Encryption Phrase to successfully decode the RTE file.

A final feature available in RTEncoder is the ability to use Compression on the source file, before the Encoding begins. This extra step will not only help make the output RTE file smaller, but it can add a measure of security by obfuscating the contents of the original file, making brute force attacks on an encoded RTE file more difficult. The compression is done using the standard GZip compression algorithm.

The RTEncoder software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.

Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
