AES File Encryptor for Windows

This week I spent some time working on a powershell script which will use AES Encryption to encrypt a file prior to it being transffered to a remote destination. The receiver will be able to unencrypt the file using a provided key.

I decided it would be a good idea to use the script as a basis for a Windows application that provides the same functionality. Using Visual Studio 2013 I quickly put together a simple user interface using WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) and wired up the controls. It took hardly any time to get the whole thing working and with the inbuilt Git integration it's been pushed up to Visual Studio Online for future reference.
