If you've written an algorithm like that, you'll definitely enjoy the book.

About 14 years ago I wrote little encryptor which used XOR to "encrypt" and "decrypt" user data which was then saved as Hex bytes in a file. It was a silly thing just to make sure the user didn't screw up the data. But it also taught me a lot about how difficult it is to create true encryption and how easy it is to decrypt data.

Also, as you read the entire history of encryption in this book you will discover that basically everything has been hacked by applying frequency analysis and the point there is : Randomize your data!
Easier said than done. Big Grin | :-D
