I just wanted to jump in and say that I&#39;m personally a fan of Serpent.&nbsp; I like to use something that&#39;s a little less popular, but still open.&nbsp; It is similar in strength (IMHO), but there will be more people trying to break AES than Serpent.&nbsp; For example, I&#39;ve read the XSL attack that can weaken AES is too complex when used on Serpent -- it would be more expensive than a brute force attack.<br>

&gt; While I&#39;ve been following this thread, I noticed this advert at the<br>
&gt; top of my screen:<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Break my cipher!: <a href="http://www.accessdata.co.nz/" target="_blank">http://www.accessdata.co.nz/</a><br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Just thought I might share in case there was some budding<br>
&gt; cryptographer fancied having a crack.<br>

</div></div>Well, the author of that site refers to his system as similar to a<br>
One-Time-Pad. If it really is an OTP, you can&#39;t break it except by theft<br>
of the key.<br>
