Chapter 2 Answer

The “one-time pad” cipher which is attributed to Joseph Mauborgne, is perhaps one of the most secure forms of cryptography. If a security company you worked for wanted to use this and was asking for your opinion what would you say?

It is a very good cypher that is extremely hard to break. This is because the key can be the length of the text to be encrypted. The problem with this kind of cypher though is the book/key needs to be distributed so the key is only as safe as the person who has it. This could lead to it being compromised.
