I know it illlegal to distibute a encryption algorithm without a back door or key given to the government. Well them I have private stuff they don't need to see. other than the porn and pirated music and movies I have other stuff thats confindential. I heard all the encryption algorithms have a key given to the government so they are useless. You basically have to built an encryption algorithm from scratch beyond 1.024Kb(1024 bit) encryption without any shortcuts and cheaply crackable security flaws that can be done without bruteforce.

Any ideas how to make a way for your information to be truely hidden from the government.

Sure. Design and build an data transfer system based on quantum cryptography.

Encryption systems are normally based on key pairs - a private key that you keep and use to sign data and a public key that everyone uses to send encrypted stuff to you.

Because encrypting/decrypting data using a key-pair system is slow, a symmetrical key is normally generated (basically a string of characters) that is used to encrypt the data and it is THIS key that is then encrypyed using your public key so that only you can find the symmetrical key by decrypting it with your private key


SO, in short all these systems basically use a single string of data to encrypt data.

The only true way to encrypt data is to write your own program that takes a symmetrical key that then encrypts data. The symmetrical key is the one you keep in your head.

It's the same as single pad encryption


Do a search on google for "symmetrical encryption programs" or something simliar and you should be able to find a program that takes a symmetrical key and encrypts a file. Not sure of what bit length is recommended for good security though (haven't been involved with security for some years now).

SSL is now 128 bit so if you went for a 256 bit symmetrical key you should be OK...although if you had a 1024 bit key that would even be better


8 bits=1 character, so 128 bit =16 characters and 1024 bit = 128 characters.
