hi all i want to lock the folder with aes encrption , but i dont know how to go about , which algorithm to be used , encrption with 126 or 256 as i wanted it for my final year project as module .Please help me to create folder encrption
How locking could be related to encryption? Or do you want to encrypt something like password? Why? Or content of the folder (but then it would not be exactly locking)? Why AES? and so on...

You don't lock a folder with an encryption algorithm, of course.
If you just want to encrypt all the folder content using the AES algorithm then your task is very easy since Java provides AES encryption out of the box and you may find sample code on the web.

thanks for replying.
if not encrypting then if we will try to lock the folder(deny access to that folder)
what technique will be needed to do that ? and how to do that?
