I'm writing an enigma-like cipher w/five rotors where adjacent rotorswhy dont use a FIALKA?
rotate opposite direction of their neighbors and they have variable
stepping in which they step a number of times equal to the position of
the character they're on plus one, starting from zero, ie. in FOOD, F's
position would be zero, and the rotors would step once, on O they would
step twice, etc. Keeping w/ the fact that the first rotor would step
after every character, the second rotor would step when the first one
stepped 36 times,etc. How much more security would that give me over a
normal three rotor machine.
