Release Notes

This release has been deprecated, and therefore abandoned for v since it supports Microsoft Word Documents as well as orthodox file encryption operations.

The largest change that you will notice in this revision of CryptoCollaboration is the toggling of objects out of the interface. The code has been adjusted to accommodate the following process:

1) If an item is encrypted with an arbitrary encryption algorithm, there are two hidden properties that are set, IsEncrypted and Algorithm. IsEncrypted tells CEE whether the item has been encrypted, and Algorithm gets that last known encryption algorithm used when encrypting the SPListitem field values. When an item is encrypted now, it toggles the interface so that you are only offered the decrypt button if it has been encrypted, and the encrypt value if the properties return that it is fit for encryption. Furthermore, since the CEE is aware of your last known algorithm when encrypting, it adjusts the RadioButtonList selection interface so that you are only offered the encryption algorithm that was used during the encryption process. Thanks to Gary LaPointe for pointing out that this would be useful!

2) Andrew Connell gave me the advice that it would also be nice if the encryption operations page was available from the ToolBar on the view and edit list form pages. I have adjusted the feature now so natively for all the appended list types the encryption button is available now. When you firstly encrypt an item, you will see that this option is available. The permissions trimming that was natively offered in the first revision of the feature still applies (requires Edit List rights since you will be modifying the value of the fields).

There were also some ascetic changes, like the List Specifics panel was returning the SPListItem name as opposed to the parent list item, etc. These have also been corrected.

In this revision, the cryptography base library also has the new methods that target doing native file encryption directly from the SharePoint interface. However, the elements required for the UI to be complete (namely, selecting whether you want metadata, file, or both encrypted) is not complete so is scheduled to be released with the next revision.
