Tell me about the scrambling algorithm.
The algorithm was developed over a three-year period by Rodger Moffett. He has an advanced degree in mathematical modeling and is pursuing a PhD in applied math. He started developing it when he saw the need to keep information on his computer private – such as information he was putting together for personnel reviews.
The algorithm is very complicated and produces a lot more text than was received. It also is quite unpredictable as the exact same text can be scrambled with the exact same password and probably never look the same in the encoded form. There are literally billions of ways that it can be scrambled.
It is slightly possible that someone with a lot of effort could decode one section of scrambled text. However, having done so, this only would work for that particular section since there are billions of ways the scrambling can occur. The would-be hacker would probably have to start from scratch on each new section. So to make it tougher on the hackers, you simply encode the text in several sections so that they have to work that much harder. In addition, the algorithm scrambles the text several times. The user controls approximately how many times it is scrambled by setting the scramble level beforehand.
