AES Home is the utility program that creates active AES-files for Windows. Active AES-files are executable programs (EXEs) that contain a AES-file and the software necessary to decrypt the information and encrypt answer messages. Users can create active executable AES-files that anyone can use to encrypt answer-back messages with the proper password. No other software is required. These active AES-files are ideal for safe electronical distribution of the information because they contain multiple compressed and encrypted files and folders. This feature is especially convenient for sending encrypted files to people who do not have PGP or CHAOS Public Key installed.
