A THOUGHT EXPERIMENT FOR CRYPTOGRAPHERS

Imagine away the symmetric key management problem. Imagine that you can have keys of any strength you wish ... a thousand bits, a hundred thousand bits, whatever. Imagine you can encrypt content once, then encrypt that encrypted version again, a different way, then encrypt that again in yet another way ... and so on, as much as you wish.

Question: How would the People's Liberation Army Unit 61398 go about decrypting your content?

End of thought experiment. Back to reality. Below is a link to a book in process, together with Windows C++ source code. It starts at a mere 12,288 bits, and only re-shreds the content 32 times. Toward the end it explains how to scale that up as needed. The symmetric key management problem? Yes, that is gone; see U.S. Patent No. 10,637,837, and/or a proof of concept program, linked below.
