AES 256? Also, is there a password length Limit?

I like the app. It's the best open source implementation of the idea I've seen yet, and I've tested 3 or 4. Question though, are you using AES 256 for the encryption? Also, what is the limit on password length?

There were a few apps that worked great but had 8 character limits, which is no good for more secure needs.

Thanks for the reply!

Hi, sorry for the late reply.

Current password length limit is 32767 characters, including white space.

Each of the textbox of password can be filled by 32767 characters.

Thanks for the reply.

Also, does it use AES 256?

This information is not correct. See reply below.
Hi, the key size used by this encryption is 128 (AES 128).

However, this software does not only use AES algorithm.
Before the text is sent to AES encryption, it is first encrypted by CTI2 encryption, which is my own creation of encryption algorithm.

To Encrypt: Text > CTI2 > AES256 + SHA512(Password) > Encrypted Text

To Decrypt: Encrypted Text > AES256 + SHA512(Password) > CTI2 > Original Text
