Not a cracker so I can't really help, but I was wondering if your algorithm would remain un-crackable if everyone knew the algorithm used or does it depend on secrecy?

Uncrackable, you say....
Can you give an outline (without revealing too much) about your algorithm? Is it public key? Is it based on historical encryption scheme/s or is it a modern digital one.
Also, I don't have the compute resources for cracking really, so its unlikely that I'll decrypt it.

If you made a truly un-crackable algorithm, you'd be dead by dawn and your algorithm would fall into the hands of secret boogymen.
Unless, of course, you put it out for the whole world to see before anyone knew what you were up to. It'd certainly change the way security works, but I've got my doubts that it's un-crackable; simply computationally difficult.
Would love to be proved wrong
