Why not use 7zip?
"7-Zip is free software distributed under the GNU LGPL"
"The main features of 7z format:
* Open architecture
* High compression ratio
* Strong AES-256 encryption
* Ability of using any compression, conversion or encryption
* Supporting files with sizes up to 16000000000 GB
* Unicode file names
* Solid compressing
* Archive headers compressing"
It's free, it has so good or sometimes even better
compression ratio than WinRAR, and uses AES 256:
"7-Zip also supports encryption with AES-256 algorithm. This
algorithm uses cipher key with length of 256 bits. To create
that key 7-Zip uses derivation function based on SHA-256 hash
algorithm. A key derivation function produces a derived key
from text password defined by user. For increasing the cost
of exhaustive search for passwords 7-Zip uses big number of
iterations to produce cipher key from text password."
If you want to use an archiver 7zip seems to be a better
choice for you.
