Encryption


Several years ago I used to be a computer programmer. During that time I worked with a great deal of sensitive data that, in some cases, had to be encrypted. Not long ago I found one of my old encryption programs that I used to encrypt financial or private data to be sent as an attached file to an email. I showed it to a young man I work with now who told me that he would have no trouble breaking my code and reading what I have encrypted. He could not do it. 🙂

This made me think. Of course, that isn’t always a good thing. 🙂 Here is a test for all who would like a challenge. The next couple of lines is an encrypted phrase. Can you decipher it? If you do, then please let me know. – Mike Ratliff
