Password protected ZIP archives

Hi Arnaud,

is there a way, using mORMot 2 to created and read password protected ZIP archives. Strolling through the source, I haven't seen anything. Did I miss it?

Regards,
Daniel

ZIP encryption is weak in terms of security, and is not supported by mormot.core.zip.pas.

Personally, I fully support that decision, based on my requirements, I regret it though :-D

ZIP supports AES encryption since version 5.2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZIP_(file … Encryption

The KBV (German association of health insurers) simply states password protected. No further information at this point :-|
