I want to encrypt a string and later decrypt it in other page using javascript ..please can u send me any sample project for this
Updated 26-Oct-19 1:04am

Why does every one thing the way to program is to ask for 'sample projects' to copy ? What is the sense in this ? If you're doing it on the client, then the client has the source code AND can step through it in Chrome, at least. So, anyone can see the strings you're encrypting, and how they are encrypted and decrypted. It's a total waste of time.

To do such a thing you'd do something very simple, it's only 7 lines.
var chars = {'a':'b','b':'c','c':'a'};
var enc;
var str = "back at it again with the bois!";
window.onload = function() {
enc = str.replace(/[abc]/g, m => chars[m]);

this will result in "cbak bt it bgbin with the cois!"

See the comments and solutions above - there is no point as the client will be able to see how the encryption works!

Even without being able to see and debug the source code, this simple variant of the Caesar-shift would be cracked within seconds.

The comments and solutions posted FIVE YEARS AGO already explain why this is a bad idea.

You can try like this.

String.prototype.toEncodedString = function(){var ostr=this.toString().replace(/\s+/g,'');if(ostr.length<8){alert("Password must be at least 8 characters long with no spaces.");return null;};var x,nstr='',len=ostr.length;for(x=0;x<len;++x){nstr+=(255-ostr.charCodeAt(x)).toString(36).toUpperCase().toPaddedString(2,'0');};return nstr;};
String.prototype.fromEncodedString = function(){var ostr=this.toString();var x,nstr='',len=ostr.length;for(x=0;x<len;x+=2){nstr+=String.fromCharCode(255-parseInt(ostr.substr(x,2),36));};return nstr;};
Number.prototype.toPaddedString = function(len,pad){len=(len)?Number(len):2;if(isNaN(len)){alert("Padded String 'length' argument is not numeric.");return null;};var dflt=(isNaN(this.toString()))?" ":"0";pad=(pad)?pad.toString().substr(0,1):dflt;var str=this.toString();if(dflt=="0"){while(str.length<len)str=pad+str;};else{while(str.length<len)str+=pad;};return str;};
String.prototype.toPaddedString = Number.prototype.toPaddedString;
var str = window.prompt('Enter string to encode:','');
if (str = str.toEncodedString())
    str = window.prompt('Enter encoded string:',str);
    str = str.fromEncodedString();
    alert('Encoding cancelled.');

Encript and decript a string

Encription and decription

And of what value is it ? Can I not set a breakpoint to step through this code, and see what's being encoded and decoded ? Can't I read the code and know exactly how to decode the string ?

Yes you can...
Put a debugger at any point in the code and get your control to that place for debugging.
fjdiewornncalwe 13-Dec-12 12:58pm
Christian's point is that if a client can step through the code in a debugger, and that code's purpose is encryption, the entire purpose of the encryption is rendered pointless.
[no name] 13-Dec-12 13:17pm
Yes I can understand the point. This is not acceptable. As there is security issues in javascript its not at all advisable to use the encription and decription using javascript. Serverside encription and decription are prefered.
