Encryption/Decryption and Voice Mail Enhancements to Privacy Suite

Senior Project: 2006-2007
Joseph Dean, Lisa Doan, Michael Kirby and Joseph McCabe
Niwot, CO

In today's computer- and network-dependent world, sensitive data is frequently stored on insecure systems and passed through insecure channels. The theft or loss of data is a major privacy and security concern that many companies cannot afford to ignore. The Web is dangerous. VeriPal aims to immunize users against the threats of criminals, phishers, pharmers, and predators.

VeriPal, a small start-up company based in Niwot, Colorado, focuses on providing security for typical users. VeriPal's Privacy Suite is designed to decrease the risk of data theft through secure, encrypted messages and transactions.

VeriPal wanted to add improvements to the VeriPal Privacy Suite. While VeriPal already had encryption and decryption algorithms, it needed these algorithms to be incorporated into an easy-to-use graphical user interface. In addition, VeriPal also wanted to give users the ability to send encrypted voicemails.

This project, implemented in Java, extended Privacy Suite by allowing users to encrypt and decrypt voicemail messages that can be attached to secure VeriPal emails. The project also enhanced data security by giving users the ability to encrypt and decrypt selected folders and files in the file system of their local machine.
