This subreddit is intended for links and discussions surrounding the theory and practice of strong cryptography, which lives at an intersection of math, programming, and computer science.
… • Do not ask people to break your cryptosystem without first sharing the algorithm.
… • Codes, ciphers, ARGs, and other such “weak crypto” don’t belong here. (Rule of thumb: If a desktop computer can break a code in less than an hour, it’s not strong crypto.)
… • “Crack this cipher” challenges also belong in /r/codes unless they’re based on interesting crypto implementation bugs, e.g. weak RSA keys.
…Be familiar with these before posting a question about a novel cryptosystem, or people will sigh and shake their heads:
…Feel free to message the moderators with suggestions for any other subreddits to link to with relevance to cryptology, cryptography, steganography, etc.
