IBM alphaWorks: A Bit Cypher(ABC) – an unbreakable data cypher

[ Thanks to Frank

“A Bit Cypher (ABC) is a program that runs on Linux
that can takes any data file and transform it to a cyphered form
that is “reasonably” unbreakable. Given the key used for cyphering,
ABC can take the cyphered form and reproduce the original file
exactly.

The strength of the cypher comes from the number of keys,
10,000,000,000, and the processing required to determine the
mapping for each key, assuming the algorythm is at hand for
decyphering.”
