Cryptcat is the standard netcat enhanced with twofish encryption with ports for WIndows NT, BSD and Linux. Twofish is courtesy of counterpane, and cryptix.
TCP/IP swiss army knife extended with twofish encryption - Cryptcat is a simple Unix utility which reads and writes data across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol while encrypting the data being transmitted. It is designed to be a reliable "back-end" tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts. Also, it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities.
What's New in This Release:
Thanks for the contributions: linux 7.0 build fixes, tricky bug fixes, -k option, OpenBSD/FreeBSD compiles, directory friendly zips & tars, including MSVC++ makes.
Since release alot of people have been submitting changes (many times for the same thing). I've been doing my best to keep up, we are trying to get this up on sourceforge, but there seems to be some sort of "approval" process that makes it unclear if that will actually happen.
So, if you have submitted something, and its not here, let me know. If you've submitted a change, and its here with someone else's name, that just means someone else got the same change in before you.
and its someone else the same for the twofish encryption with twofish
