Encryption is of prime importance when confidential data is transmitted over the network. Varied encryption algorithms like AES, DES, RC4 and others are available for the same. The most widely accepted algorithm is AES algorithm. The authors have developed an application on Android platform which allows the user to encrypt the messages before it is transmitted over the network. They have used the Advanced Encryption Standards algorithm for encryption and decryption of the data. This application can run on any device which works on Android platform. This application provides a secure, fast, and strong encryption of the data.
