# NEOCLASSIC, A simple versatile encryption scheme (with authentication)
based
# largely on the straightforward use of well-known classical crypto
techniques.
# Prologue:
# Having during the years designed a small number of encryption
algorithms, I
# am increasingly convinced that no practical encryption algorithm could be
# absolutely secure in the strict sense of the word and hence the quest for
# such is futile from the very beginning. In fact, there exist rather strong
# critiques [1] on the so-called proofs of crypto security. Thus what
seems to
# be desirable in practice will be the availability of a sufficiently large
# number of diverse kinds of sufficiently strong encryption algorithms that,
# when appropriately used (eventually in combinations, i.e. the so-called
# superencipherment), are intuitively safe with a satisfactory "factor of
# safety" in relationship to the power of attacks that one's opponent
# "presumably" has in hand. One is IMHO therefore defacto always doing some
# gambling in the crypto practice. But this is actually also the case
everywhere
# in real life, e.g. in the practice of medicine. In releasing the present
# software to the public, I am certainly conscious that it is definitely not
# absolutely secure but can only be hopefully practically secure, namely
when
# the user chooses sufficiently conservative values for its system
parameters.
# A deplorable dilemma I am facing as designer is however that, in
distinction
# to e.g. pharmacy, there are in crypto barely any practical tests of the
# nature of those pertaining to drugs to determine the right dosage for
# administration to the patients. Since I could hardly provide any sensible,
# ubiquitously valid, guidances to the selection of the system parameters, I
# am obliged to warn the potential user of my software at the very
beginning:
# The user is himslef responsible for the appropriate choice of the system
# parameters of the software in any actual applications.

# NEOCLASSIC is a Python code for encryption processing that performs an
# arbitrary user-chosen number of rounds of pseudo-random transposition and
# substitution determined by a user-given session-key utilizing Python's
# built-in pseudo-random number generator (PRNG). Excepting the use of
PRNG (and
# the use of computer), everything in NEOCLASSIC is straightforward
application
# of well-known techniques in classical cryptography, hence the name of the
# scheme. It is the latest member of a set of (to date) 4 members of
encryption
# algorithms first published by the present author in
# http://s13.zetaboards.com/Crypto/index/ (the other 3 are JADE-S, JADE,
# SHUFFLE2). With appropriate setting of parameters, its strength is
considered
# to be comparable to the other members of the set. It may however be
preferred
# by the user because of the comparatively smaller number of its code
lines and
# consequently presumably also less time required to understand its
design and
# verify the coding for correctness and freedom from malicious backdoors. In
# fact, NEOCLASSIC has been developed primarily in view of the evidently
# enhanced needs of the common people to choose and employ sufficiently
strong
# encryption software to protect the privacy of their innocent
communications
# against the appallingly huge-scale international secret surveillance
done by
# certain mighty nation-states of the world as recently revealed by the
# apparently highly convincing reports of the British newspaper The
Guardian.
# It may be noted that outputs of Python't built-in PRNG are only used
# indirectly and not directly as would have been the case for streám
encryption
# processing. Further, there is processing-dependent dynamics/variability
# provided by the feedback operations (skipping of PRNs output from the
PRNG,
# see the function process()). Thus the question concerning extremely high
# quality of the PRNG being used isn't a critical one to be examined for
# applications of NEOCLASSIC in practice.
# Communication partners should ensure having installed the same version of
# Python, since NEOCLASSIC depends on Python's built-in PRNG. We like to
mention
# that, besides the evident requirement of keeping session-keys (and
preferrably
# also the chosen system parameters) secret, it may be under circumstances
# prudent (because of possible malware infections) to do
encryption/decryption
# processing exclusively on physically secure computers isolated from the
# Internet and transfer the processed materials manually, i.e. on papers, to
# computers connected to the Internet, noting possible insecurity of USB
sticks.
# Risks of electromagnetic emanations may eventually have to be
considered as
# well (see R. Anderson, Security Engineering, chap. 15, Emission Security).

Transposition is

shuffle() on
# textstring. Substitution is done in two stages. First, each
character's index
# in alphabet is added by sigma and a pseudo-random value from Python's
built-in
# PRNG (modulo alphabet size). This kind of addition goes back to the
ancient
# Caesar cipher in classical cryptography. The variable sigma is initialized

with the
# index of the character being processed as the addend, thus resulting in
# processing-dependent dynamics/variability which is beneficial for security
# (albeit lacking in most other modern ciphers). Then there is a global
# substitution with Python's function translate(), with a substitution
alphabet
# determined by Python's function shuffle(). This is mono-alphabetical
# substitution in the straightforward classical sense. Note that the varying
# value of sigma has the effect of block-chaining known in modern block
# encryption and is thus of particular significance to the performance of
# authentication achieved via the authentication block (i.e. the MAC in
modern
# crypto terminology). If the updated sigma equals feedbackval, then the
