Vernam Two

Dan P. Milleville

Abstract: The Vernam cipher is the only known engine to be mathematically perfect. Its drawback is the key needs to be sent along with the ciphertext because it is a one-time pad. This submission shows how, with a fixed key table, a non-repeating stream key of at least 128 Gigabytes can be and is constructed so as to preclude the requirement of the key being transmitted with the ciphertext.
