  1. If anyone is interested in an outside the box approach. I invented a cipher over 6 years ago. It is a positional cipher that among many things compresses the cipher text to as little as a single one byte digit. Decryption is a simple counting function. Let me know if you are interested. I am not a programmer but thought this had merit even though it is now a simple hand cipher.
  2. Below is a sample key using letters. It could just as easily use ascii or bits or bytes. You will notice that it has several words called " paces" the obvious question is how do you know which one to use. The truth is it does not matter and to avoid human random error sequences that might allow this to be frequency attacked you could make decicions by the flip of a coin. In a frequency attack such as you would use with a one time pad. Vigeners cipher you could include letter double, triples, and even whole words, nibbles, bits, bytes, etc. m 5 a v er o a b space tt c
  3. Decided to post this simply because it has relevance past what I am able to code... I know Schneier said "Anyone, from the most clueless amateur to the best cryptographer, can create an algorithm that he himself can't break." I have studied cryptography, encryption methods and cryptanalysis for over 20 years. This is past me and has many one time pad similarities, but very very different. Enjoy and let me know what you think. Here is the link to see how to code and decode a positional cipher. I thought of this many years ago and thought I would post it to see what you think. To me it is lit
