The research, design and implementation of students file encryption and decryption system using one-time pad algorithm seeks to improve the security of student records in tertiary institutions by using trusted techniques as given in the research. The purpose is to develop an automated student’s data protection application in order to consolidate existing security measures as it pertains to data integrity and privacy. The software design methodology adopted for the research is the waterfall model due to the fact that is does not allow overlapping of processes. For the system design and implementation. Pelles C programming for windows version 9.00.9 for code generation and startUML was used for user interface design all in a bid to actualize the objectives of the research.
