NAME

       gcipher - a simple encryption tool

SYNOPSIS

       gcipher

       gcipher [CIPHEROPTIONS]... [INPUT] [OUTPUT]

       gcipher [CIPHEROPTIONS]... -p PROXIEDHOST PROXIEDPORT LISTENINGPORT

       CIPHEROPTIONS:
              (-c | -C) CIPHER [-k KEY]

       "-" may be used for either INPUT or OUTPUT to represent STDIN or STDOUT respectively.

EXAMPLES

       Show the GUI:
              gcipher

       Encrypt a file using the Gie cipher:
              gcipher -c Gie inputfile outputfile

       Decrypt STDIN and output to STDOUT using Rot13:
              gcipher -C Rot -k 13

       Listen  on port 1027 and act as a proxy for port 1028 on gnu.org.  Decrypt the data coming
       from gnu.org and encrypt data going to gnu.org using Vigenere with key linux:
              gcipher -c Vigenere -k linux -p gnu.org 1028 1027

DESCRIPTION

       This is a simple encryption tool to work with home-grown encryption  algorithms.   It  can
       run as either a GUI, a command-line application, or a network proxy.

       -c CIPHER
              encrypt using the given cipher

       -C CIPHER
              decrypt using the given cipher

       -k KEY set the key for the previous cipher

       -p PROXIEDHOST PROXIEDPORT LISTENINGPORT
              act as a network proxy

CIPHERS

       Gie    a simple cipher doable by hand; no key is required

       Caesar Julius Caesar's code; no key is required

       Rot    linear  rotation;  the  amount  of the rotation is given by the key which must be a
              number in the range [0, 25]

       Vigenere
              a version of ROT that uses a private key;  the  key  must  be  made  of  lower-case
              letters
