Hi

Does anybody know about simple library that I can use it for encrypting and decrypting voice files?

Thank you.

That would be as Henry advised in intermediate. Google for Java Crypto, let us know when you get stuck.

voice is just data. First you have to record the sound, get the data, get the bytes, apply your favorite cipher, and convert the enciphered bytes to some format to store.

To play back, reverse.

The java crypto code is simple, for a crypto library. None of this stuff is very simple or approachable.

Key management is the hard part, but first you should get the basics down

Pat, it's a student project:

Poster, Pat knows what he's doing.

It all gets down to key control. You can look at the full range of emoticons provided for posting as well as add a few others to get some idea of what key control is about.

Unfortunately, to get there takes some intense study ... Start with

The Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) extends the JCA API to include APIs ... The Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) was designed around these principles: ...

As a student project, the rules are a lot easier to deal with.

First, make sure you can record voice and store the data, at least to a disk file. And can play it back.

Get that working first.

Then you can 'encipher' it by XOR with a trivial passphrase. Store that, and play it back.

Then, and only then, add the real crypto layer as Henry and others have pointed.

The key to remember is that a crypto API takes stuff and makes it look like random garbage. It does this when it works right, and when it works wrong.
If you don't have everything else working, you will never be able to tell what is the cause of your bugs.

Its fairly easy to get things a little bit wrong, and if you are lucky, you won't be able to decihper it. If you are unlucky, you will deploy it, and later someone else will find that its trivial to break.

For a student project, you don't have to worry too much about that.
