Version 3.0 Released October 21, 2001: Now supports Triple DES on Palm device and PC!
PRL Software's DES Encryption extension is a SatForms plugin that provides Triple DES encryption and hexadecimal data conversion functions.
The DES Encryption extension provides full encryption for Satellite Forms developers on the Palm Pilot. The encryption provided is the "Triple Data Encryption Standard" or 3DES. It is also known as "Data Encryption Algorithm" or DEA.
Up until now there has been no real method of safe guarding data on a palm. Tables can easily be retrieved from the palm or "beamed" to a PC or other device. If the data is encrypted then any malicious or devious person attempting to read or change data will be effectively blocked. This is invaluable for customer lists/details or personal/private memos.
This extension lets you encrypt and decrypt and ASCII (text) data within Satellite Forms, including:
Text enclosed in quotation marks, e.g. "Text to be Encrypted/Decrypted"
Control data, e.g. EditboxCustomer_Name.Data
The results can also be placed into a variable, database field or control. This means that data can be stored in a database in an encrypted format, to be decrypted on the PC. An ActiveX DLL - PalmDES.DLL - is provided with the same methods as the extension, meaning that code can be transferable between Palm and PC for encryption/decryption tasks.
Included with this extension is the ability to store and send any standard ASCII character from the PC to the Palm and from the Palm to the PC. This resolves the international character problem of various Satellite Forms versions that inhibits the Palm sending the PC extended ASCII codes.

This extension is manufactured by PRL Software and is marketed by PalmDataPro.com. NOTE: This extension is no longer supported by PRL Software, is not supported by PalmDataPro, and is available on an AS IS basis only.
The extension includes a royalty-free per-developer runtime license, meaning you can distribute the extension PRC files royalty-free with your app but you need to purchase a separate license for each SF developer (basically the same as the SF Standard Edition license).
System Requirements: This extension is compatible with all PalmOS devices running OS 3.0 and above. PalmOS5 Ready!
