This article aims to focus on encryption based algorithm on ASCII value and Random number generator. Proposed algorithm has been developed with the view to achieve data security and prevent unauthorized persons from meddling with such secret data. An ASCII based conversion has been implemented to encrypt shorter length messages through a symmetric key. The algorithm specifically accommodates the concept of random number generation that makes it tough for the hackers to decrypt despite accidentally discovering the key. This concept also involves floating point numbers for encryption to enhance the difficulty level of cryptanalysis. Hence this algorithm will provide an efficient way to make it almost impossible for the intruders to track the message.
Keywords: ASCII, Encryption, Hackers, Random Number, Symmetric Key
