Summary: you have a key space of 2**54.

Why such a small key space? Single DES has a key space of 2**56

(not counting the parity bits, since you shouldn't). More modern

ciphers use bigger key spaces, like 128 or 256 bits.

A large key space does not necessarily make a secure cipher. A

small key space can make a brute force attack feasable and nothing

can overcome that.

The overall algorithm was not fully described in this particular

implementation . The 56 bit key is a secondary one while the primary

key as a constant size of 200 deranged alphabets of 65 characters

each. The main key can be derived from a simple seeded RNG worth only

about 15 bits or to the other extreme of complete randomness. A

variety of schemes can be used to make keys somewhere in between,

stored or generated on the fly. It's quite a beast and when the three-

letter boys paid for a copy of an earlier a buggy version in the 90's,

there was a stir and I enjoyed the personal informal congratulations

one on one from some of them. One of many rather weird sounding

schemes, it is well founded and extends historic and solid theory.

But, I have never been a one trick pony.
