Maybe use encryption?

P: n/a
Hi,

I've been reading the thread, and one thing that struck me as odd was that
you are trying to mimic an immensely difficult and sensitive procedure by
re-inventing the wheel...

First of all, it is perfectly possible to convert a large amount of
characters into a byte array using the system.text.encoding namespace.

Secondly, and most importantly, why not use the System.Security.Encryption
namespaces that .Net provides to create a strongly (128 bit) encrypted
string? It is fairly easy to encrypt data using either DES or TripleDES
(Data Encryption Standard), and provided you keep the keys secret, it is
nearly unbreakable encryption.

Hope this helps,
