     DS2 Encryption is ideally suited to secure the digital transfer of information on public networks such as the Internet. The DS2 salt technique can theoretically output 1,078,203,909,375 different encrypted byte streams from just one input stream. Therefore even if the same data is transmitted again it will not look the same. Along with slick clean math function this cipher is fast and secure. From analysis, certain forms of differential attacks may be successful on lesser round variants of this algorithm but nothing is certain. The key-size is variable length and is undeterminable from analysis. Meaning very large keys can be achieved! SALT TECHNIQUES USED: This is achieved by selecting 5 random bytes and adding them to the byte stream. The byte stream then undergoes CBC (Cipher Block Chaining), byte & bit level processing before being spit out as 1 of the 1,078,203,909,375 different possible ciphertext results.

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

Your comment put a number on the possible out comes. I don't trust you understood the cipher. I'll stick with the other David's. I just want to mention for security, these types of pieces of code should not be compromised! I like the Hex math in BI-gone quick.
