    encryption "crash-test"

    Hi all,

    I created a data encryption algorithm own.
    Does anyone know how i can test the reliability?
    (note that this algorithm is not based on any known concept, or so I think)

    Thx for any suggestions.

    if you post your code, someone *might* test it. Make sure it's the SOURCE CODE ONLY. Not an .exe

    I do not want to test source code.
    I want to test the encrypted file

    You can have a contest, and offer $$$ to anyone that could break it. Or, just post part of the encrypted file in CHIT CHAT, and they'll play around with it.

    Re: encryption "crash-test"

    Perhaps this related thread can aid in the discussion: http://forums.codeguru.com/showthrea...uot-is-my-code One of the core points there is that a secret encryption algorithm is unlikely to ever be widely trusted in the developer communty (and why).

    It's the key that needs to be kept secret, not the algorithm.

    I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.
