>From the zlib FAQ:

38. How can I encrypt/decrypt zip files with zlib?

    zlib doesn't support encryption. The original PKZIP encryption is very weak

    use GnuPG, , which already includes zlib compression.
    For PKZIP compatible "encryption", look at

I don't see the point of a weak and easily breakable encryption.
