Abstract

In this article, an encryption scheme based on conference matrix has been developed. An easier algorithm of formation of encryption/decryption keys have been discussed. The decryption key comprising of fixed number of positive integers with prime power yields a high level security of message. Some popular attacks have been discussed in the context of cryptoanalysis and observed that it is robust against the popular cipher attack and the security of the information does not compromise.
