By August 15, 2017December 10th, 2017New releases

Encryption plug-in adds new script steps and online help for FileMaker Pro 16.

Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, August 15, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Encryptor Plug-in 4.0 for FileMaker Pro 16.

What is Troi Encryptor Plug-in?

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. All from within FileMaker you can:

  • 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 across 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
  • exchange AES-encrypted data with other systems (like for example PHP-mcrypt)
  • verify data integrity and sources with SHA-1 message digests
  • encode text in Base64
  • make conversions to and from binary
  • compress databases with large text fields
  • save and retrieve passwords to and from the keychain of the operating system

What is new in version 4.0?

We rewrote Troi Encryptor Plug-in for FileMaker 16 and it now has the following new functionality:

  • Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 16.
  • Fixed several bugs, rewrote and modernized the code in several places and made further improvements.
  • Updated the User Guide and the Reference.fmp12 file.
  • Made various minor changes to the example files to better work with FileMaker Pro 16.
  • Updated the code by adding improved namespace handling to make the plug-in more robust.

Extra features when running FileMaker Pro 16

Version 4.0 adds the following new features when running in FileMaker 16:

  • The Encryptor Plug-in adds multiple script steps when running in FileMaker Pro 16. You can select these script steps in the script steps pane in Script Workspace, or you can begin typing the script step name, then choose the script step from the list that appears. The script steps expand the possible actions you can perform with FileMaker Pro. Only steps that perform an action have been added as a script step. Functions that just manipulate data and have no side effect (like for example Encr_EncryptRijndaelAES) are only available as an external function.
    The following three script steps are added:

  • Added new scripts to the EncryptAES example file, which demonstrate how to use the new external script steps of FileMaker Pro 16. The examples check if FileMaker Pro 16 is running and will select these new scripts.
  • Added support for online help for the functions and script steps of the plug-in. You can now easily get online help from the Troi website, by clicking the Help button (the small question mark button) next to the function description in the functions pane or the script step description in the script steps pane.

Apart from these additions we fixed several bugs and made various further improvements. More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi Encryptor Plug-in 4.0 can be found on the Encryptor Plug-in page.
