talonCrypt - written by Sir Talonz Ok, I've come up with my own form of encryption I call talonCrypt. It is actully a very simple concept that works quite well. For the most part it has with held against basic brute force attacks. To make this work you must have two complete sets of the alphabet. Assign each letter in the first set it's own random integer. Now do the same to the second set. Now I will use examples to explain the rest for it can get a bit complicated. Lets for instince say our first set has a as a value of 3, b a value of 7, and c a value of 5. The word we want to encrypt is 'cab'. The second set a has a value of 6, b has a value of 10, and c has a value of 8. To spell cab we would combine a & c. This would get us ac = c. Do you see how I did that? Since a has a value of 3 and c has a value of 5, 3 + 5 = 8. c has a numerical value of 8. I will encrypt the rest of it just to give you further example. Your final result should look something like this: acaaab. This is only one example. You could get a large number of other possible spellings of 'cab' with just using the above code. (this was extremly simple code for the sake of time!) The reason why this form of encryption works so well is because of the large number of different possible spellings for a single word. Add this in with a substitution method, some really random integers, and possibly even a permutation and you got yourself a pretty good encrypted string. The thing that also makes this great is the simplicity. It requires no degree in calculus to do. Anyone that can add can use this. ____ _ ___ _____ _ ___ __ ____ | _| | | | 0 | |_ _| /\ | | | | | \/| |_ / |_ | | | | \ | | / \ | |_ | 0 | | | / /_ |____| |_| |_|\_\ |_| /_/\_\ |___| |___| |_|\_| /____| © 1999 all rights reserved http://h4ck0p.blackout.org/crypto/ talonz@mac-addict.com
