     This Encryption tool provides a fast way to encipher messages with the SECOM handcipher. SECOM uses a 20 letter key phrase to generate the settings for a straddling checkerboard, a normal and a disrupted transposition. The combination of fractioning by the checkerboard and the double disrupted transposition makes SECOM a higly secure encryption methode. Although the program will encode or decode a message very fast, the main purpose of SECOM is secure manual pencil-and paper encryption. In the program, you can call the paper version of SECOM and learn with clear instructions how to use this handcipher 'in the field'. This program is an educational interesting example of classic cryptography, more specific disrupted transpositions and fractionation of text. *** update 9/18 W1 W2 calculation error ***

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
