Secure your FileMaker data

Troi Encryptor Plug-in is a very powerful tool for securing your FileMaker data, exporting or emailing your data without risk and importing safely back into FileMaker. With the plug-in installed you can do all this from within FileMaker:

  • encrypt text or container fields, using the powerful 256-bit AES encryption scheme, so that your sensitive data is secure
  • export encrypted data that can be sent safely over internet, for example via email. No risk that someone will read or change the data while in transit
  • use the decryption functions to restore the original information after you have imported the received email or export file back into FileMaker, with the assurance that nobody will have tampered with it
  • verify data integrity and sources with MD5 or SHA-1 message digests
  • encode text in e.g. Base64
  • make conversions to and from binary
  • compress databases with large text fields

AES-256 bit encryption and decryption

With the Encryptor Plug-in you can encrypt fields using the powerful AES encryption scheme, so that your sensitive data is secure. This function will produce text that looks like this:
<TROI_AES_STD_ENCR10>
NVFJPSV9fX19fX19fXzMybiDY8PbHTmYWtbemlDAAibocn0S8Wh1lR9p28t8v3Fn6C1ScIykT

Fyh3eniVyMXmZCY+G2a+KlJDKBxlvKBPAKo3GsZUsC7A0U2+Xigl2q2dulmZYw1eLbk=
</TROI_AES_STD_ENCR10>

So can you read this? =)
Troi Encryptor Plug-in 3.0 and later offers powerful AES-256 bit encryption, as opposed to the now considered less secure 128-bit encryption in previous versions of the plug-in. The EncryptRijndaelAES function will now use AES-256 bit encryption by default. This version stays compatible with older versions, though: you can still use the 128-bit encryption scheme, by using a switch.
The DecryptRijndael function will automatically detect if data previously encrypted with Troi Encryptor Plug-in is AES-128 or AES-256 and decrypt the text automatically. You don’t need to change the scripts or add any switches for this to work.

Exchange encrypted data with other systems

Troi Encryptor Plug-in has 3 functions that enable you to easily exchange AES-encrypted data with other systems (like for example PHP-mcrypt). Externally AES-encrypted data can now be decrypted in FileMaker with Troi Encryptor Plug-in and vice versa! In the download we added a PHP mcrypt script which demonstrates how to decrypt data generated with the EncryptAES.fmp12 example file in PHP.

Safely store passwords in the keychain

Troi Encryptor allows you to store passwords in the keychain and retrieve and delete them later, all directly from FileMaker. When you save a password into the keychain, you specify the name of the account (or user) associated with it, and optionally an extra ID, which will help you distinguish between different passwords for the same account. As the keychain is unlocked when the user logs in to the operating system, the password can later be retrieved from it without the user needing to enter the (keychain) password. You can then use the retrieved password to decrypt text in a field, for example with the Encr_DecryptRijndaelAES function. A third function allows you to delete previously stored passwords from the keychain.

Compress and decompress text

You can compress text using the ZLIB compression.

Send sensitive data via email

With the SafeAscii function you can create data that can be sent safely over internet, for example via email. It will convert fields that contain higher ASCII, into a format that contains lower ASCII only. For example the text: “•Günther and Børg” will be coded like this:
%Troi SafeAscii v1.0
.VG.Pnther-Pand-PB/>rg
%End SafeAscii v1.0

This can be decoded again, to recreate all the original higher ASCII characters. More importantly, if you use this function on encrypted text it will also be converted to a format that is safe to send over internet.

Export and import data without risk

The plug-in has a function ShortSafeAscii, which is a variant of the SafeAscii function. With this you can export any text field, including encrypted data, to an export file.

And more…

The plug-in has a generic code function, which makes it possible to encrypt a field with the key as the parameter. This opens up the possibility to decrypt without the need for a script.

Suggested Uses

  • Make sure that confidential data stays confidential
  • Share medical data over internet, including pictures
  • Verify the correctness of important text
  • Compress large texts

Of course much more is possible. The best way to see if it can help you is to try it out!

Troi Encryptor Plug-in 3.5

Version 3.5 of Troi Encryptor Plug-in was tested and made compatible with FileMaker 15. In this version we improved the multi-threading behavior of the plug-in when running in FileMaker Pro 15. We also added description and type-ahead information for all functions of the plug-in. This extra function description will be shown in FileMaker Pro 15 in the Specify Calculation dialog box when you type a function name and also as a text popup in the functions pane on the right.
The type-ahead information is used by the auto complete functionality of FileMaker Pro 15. In the calculation pane of the Specify Calculation dialog box you can type a letter or two of the function name and instantly see a list of matching function names. For example when you type “aes”, the auto complete functionality will suggest the Encr_AES_EncryptUsingKey function. You can also type a function name in the functions pane on the right: for example if you type “Encry” you will see all the functions with Encrypt in the name, like Actr_EncryptRijndaelAES.

Apart from FileMaker 15 compatibility, version 3.5 adds three new functions that enable you to store passwords in the keychain and retrieve and delete them later, all directly from FileMaker. When you save a password into the keychain, you specify the name of the account (or user) associated with it, and optionally an extra ID, which will help you distinguish between different passwords for the same account. As the keychain is unlocked when the user logs in to the operating system, the password can later be retrieved from it without the user needing to enter the (keychain) password. You can then use the retrieved password to decrypt text in a field, for example with the Encr_DecryptRijndaelAES function. A third function allows you to delete previously stored passwords from the keychain.
