Recently, I have been interested in creating a quick one-way encryption method. After playing around with a lot of different variations, I settled on the following:

``````
function encrypt(message, length) {
// If the message is the empty string, return the empty string.
if(message == "") {
return "";
}

// Calculate the offset of the first character.
var chars = "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/".split("");
for(var last = 0, i = 0, len = message.length; i < len; i++) {
last = (message.charCodeAt(i) + 31 * last) % 59;
}

// Adjust for the specified length if it was given.
length = length || message.length;
while(len < length) {
message += message;
len += len;
}
message = message.slice(0, length);

// Generate the encrypted string.
for(var ret = "", i = 0; i < length; i++) {
ret += chars[last = (i + last + message.charCodeAt(i)) % 64];
}
return ret;
}
``````

One nice thing about this function is the fact that you can restrict the encrypted message to a certain length. Another interesting thing is that, the ordering of the characters in the string matters. One last thing that I find interesting is that it truly acts as a one-way encryption method as long as there is more than one character (meaning you can’t decrypt the message once it is encrypted).

The main reason I created this function was to encrypt strings used to verify that a person is who they say they are (kind of like a password, but not exactly in my case ðŸ˜‰ ). All I have to say is, if you think you can break this encryption for string longer than one character, please let me know! 8)

Interesting.

If you try running the code you have in the gist you will see it doesn’t even work:

Are you saying your code is the result of encryption? ðŸ™‚
