(About the author)
     NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) announced its acceptance of the Rijdael encryption algorithm. Originally written in ANSI C and then C++, a Visual Basic version was released in April 2001. Here it is for all of you who would like to add another algorithm to your collection. More information about the Rijndael algorithm can be found at:

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

You can also find more information here, along with implementations in other (programming) languages.

Wonderful. It's just sad that most people on this site won't realise it...

I find it to multiply the length of the string to a point where it is no longer practical for a reversable encryption.

Mmmm the code goes wrong if using a number (say 5000) and not using hex.
Do you have an update?
