    New Crypto Algorithm


    Hello everyone, I wanted to ask if the algorithm that I created for the safety it is very difficult to decipher.
    example:
    Starting string "ciao":
    Encrypt: 26e316406I5947t319430c3201

    Starting string "Продукция"
    Encrypt:08i325606A1o58T2W36c321858U2V04z323840J7o38L8Z58B0W48g322818w326536x327648M0p58u325636A2v30q 327414m326652s3265

    The algorithm creates different keys even if the word used is always the same
    example:
    Starting string "ciao":
    Encrypt: 53x322132f319555u321918Y96

    Thank you all.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper

    Well I can just as easily mash my keyboard 3 times and post the resulting stream of characters my "super encryption".

    But without additional information, it's just a meaningless statement.

    Post your code and/or your algorithm description if you want a serious critique.

    Otherwise, I'll just point at the "secret algorithms" section of the snake oil FAQ and move onto looking at other things instead.

    You need to be careful with your terminology here.
    "key" has a very distinct meaning in cryptography, but you use it to apparently mean ciphertext.

    encrypt(cleartext,key) -> ciphertext
    decrypt(ciphertext,key) -> cleartext

    Good crypto algorithms publish everything except the key, which is known only to Alice and Bob

    I mean no offense, but I am going to assume unequivocally that your encryption scheme is completely insecure. You haven't provided any proofs of security or even mentioned a single detail about your scheme other than giving two plaintext/ciphertext combinations. In fact, assuming you didn't mash your keyboard like someone else said, against an efficient adversary your scheme is definitely 100% insecure.

    Also, when you say, "the algorithm creates different keys even if the word used is always the same" has a formal term -- it's called 'probabilistic'. Your scheme is not the first one to use this idea.

    Sorry, but encryption is a science, not an art. You would have to do an enormous amount of reading and research in both mathematics and computer science before you had any hope of creating a computationally secure encryption scheme.
