Data Encryption | ZIP/390 Multi-Platform
The security of your data depends not only on the strength of the encryption method but also on the strength of your password, including factors such as length and composition of the password and the measures you take to ensure that your password is not disclosed to unauthorized third parties.
The only advantage of Zip 2.0 encryption over the more secure AES encryption is that it is supported by most Zip file utilities, including earlier versions. Files that you encrypt using this technique can be extracted by anyone who knows the correct password and has access to almost any Zip file utility.
