Re: It depends on several factorsby (no login)
It's just a text encryption, so it doesn't encrypt files. I guess it's more accurate to call it a text cipher program. I'm going to use it to protect my passwords and then save them to text file (in case i forget!). Not really sure how difficult it would be for the government to decipher it, but it's definitely more complex than a substitution cipher.
My decryption program is called "Decoder" so....
For now, there are only 32 possible keys, so it wouldn't be too bad, but i plan to add more later.
Right now, this is what my program looks like :
You input the message to be enciphered then the program encodes the text and embeds the encryption key within the translation
I was wondering whether I should provide the encryption key separately
Right now, "hello" would be translated into something like this(depends on the key) :
If I provided the encryption key separately, it would look like this :
Key = A$%^*
Translation = 1v5ol
So, I was wondering which one of these I should use.
