Fifth Generation (India) Ltd has introduced a system for encoding and decoding electronic file for non-suspicious and secure communication. The products and services range is called the BlackHole range. It uses cryptography and can convert encrypted e-mail attachments into images of the users' choice.

The company says that the product uses dual plus key logic whereby the sender encodes e-mail attachment into an image of his choice and sends it to the desired recipient. At the other end, only the desired recipient will be able to decode the encoded image file to extract the actual file. The encoding procedure also uses cryptography algorithms to provide additional security.

There is also provision for decoding the image even if the recipient has not installed a BlackHoleMail decoding module. The product also ensures that a third party which has the same encoding/decoding system installed cannot decode the intruded encoded image file.

The company offers two shrink wrap versions of the products:

1) BlackHole v2.0 - to camouflage files/folders within a system.

2) BlackHoleMail - to encode/decode e-mail attachments into images to provide non-suspicious and secure communication for the Intranet and Internet.
