Application:

At the beginning you are asked for the starting value of the random number generator: SEED?

Take any number between 0 and 1.

The same number has to be used for encryption and decryption.

Then you are asked whether you want to encrypt or to decrypt ENC=1 DEC=2?

Put in 1 for encryption, 2 for decryption.

Then you are asked for a character. You can use any of the following 44 characters:

[Space] * + , - . / : 0 to 9 A to Z.

Only characters are used that can be easily accessed by the keyboard.

After putting in the character and pressing R/S you are shown the encrypted (or decrypted) character and you can input the next character and press R/S

Example: We want to encrypt and decrypt the following phrase: THE CALCULATOR FORUM

XEQ alpha CRYP alpha

-> SEED? We take Pi – 3: PI 3 – R/S

-> ENC = 1 DEC = 2? We want to encrypt, therefore: 1 R/S

-> CHAR? -> T R/S -> K (K is the encryption for T at that place). Next letter overwrites the encryption.

-> H R/S -> N -> E R/S -> / -> (Space) R/S -> D …

The whole phrase encrypted as follows:

KN/DFC/03J1*.71T6T2R

Note that the same character is transformed to different encrypted characters like the first A from Calculator to C and the second to 1. Note that as well the same character in the encrypted phrase can be different characters in the not encrypted phrase like the first “/” stands for E and the second for L. Furthermore space is coded as well so that length of words cannot be used to decipher.

Decryption:

XEQ alpha CRYP alpha

-> SEED? To decrypt we have to take the same number: PI 3 – R/S

-> ENC = 1 DEC = 2? We want to decrypt, therefore:2 R/S

-> CHAR? We type K (the first letter of the encrypted phrase) R/S -> T (the first letter of the not encrypted phrase) -> N R/S -> H -> / R/S -> E D R/S -> (space) …

Note: If no character is shown this stands for space.

Method:

For every character a random number generator is used to encrypt it. So the meaning of a character is position sensitive.

The random number generator is in lines 28-32. It has the form: r(n) = Frac(9821*r(n-1)+0.211327).

It was taken from the HP Standard Programs Book for the HP 34C.

Enjoy!
