A plain text or clear text is basically any communicating language that human being speaks. A message or plain text can be understood by anybody who knows the language and as long as the message is not codified in any manner. So now we have to use coding scheme to ensure the information is hidden from anyone for whom it is not intended even those who can see the coded data. Cryptography is a method of storing and transmitting data in a particular form so that only those for whom it is intended can read and process it. Cryptography is the practice and study of hiding information. In modern times cryptography is considered as a branch of both mathematics and computer science and is affiliated closely with information theory, computer science and engineering. There are two basic types of cryptography-Symmetric key and asymmetric key cryptography. There are few well known symmetric key algorithms i.e, DES, RSA, MD5, etc. This paper describes cryptography, various symmetric key algorithms in detail and then proposes a new symmetric key algorithm. Algorithms for both encryption and decryption are also provided here. The advantages of this new algorithm are also explained properly.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
