Aight, I need to know if it is possible to encrypt a cd so that before you can access the data you have to type in a password. I don't need anything "really" secure, I just need to keep some people out that don't know a whole lot about computers. Thanx. Oh, sorry if I put this in the wrong section but I'm in a hurry and don't have a whole lot of time.

I would think the answer is no. I mean that is what I would think. But you could store all your data in some HTML file and Password protect it with some easy to crack Javascript...

Right...

So put all your data in an HTML format with a JavaScript password script in it. Then burn the CD. Password protected CD.

Canada eh
hrm, interesting idea. I did some searching on goole (a search engine, you should try it sometime) and came up with these:

As well programs like winzip will allow you to password protect an archive that you create. Now I know this isn't password protecting the CD itself, but it will accomplish the exact same thing as what you are asking.

I considered the winzip option but adding all the data to an archive takes WAY 2 much time, I think I found a proggy that'll let me do what I'm wanting 2. I'll keep in touch

yap bestcrypt is definately a good choice

/me speaks of experience!


The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean, "Someone who loves to program and enjoys being clever about it."

Le4rner your idea was the stupidest idea I have seen here, if I want to see those pages all I need to do is disable javascript in my browser!

plus it wont work effectively with executables or most other shit!
