Notes about the CIP file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The CIP file type is primarily associated with 'CryptoBuddy' by Research Triangle Software. CryptoBuddy supplies encryption and decryption services for any designated computer file. The compression/decompression processes eliminate redundant and/or repeating plaintext characters to frustrate cryptanalysis by removing any character patterns from the ciphertext stream. The use of cipher block chaining further reduces any residual patterns developing in the stream. Once the file is compressed, an encryption routine, based on the Blowfish algorithm, is run to perform the encryption. The .CIP file is an encrypted file container that holds a single encrypted file.
