## Main Question or Discussion Point

Im not exactly sure how encryption works, but, I think, it basically just scrables the alphabet, if you will. So somthing like "dusk" would become "ftjo" if red withot the decryption key. (of course, it is more complicated and in binary, but still..) Right?

So.. if so, and if encryption keyy is generated randomly, is there a chance that something like "dusk" would actually read as "dawn" when scrabbled?

Assuming that this is at least somewhat correct, I will ask this: is it possible to use this effect in our advantage?

By making the encryption key not-random, by calculating what encyption key would be necessary for an existing file to be red as something completely else, but readable, when red with the key and creating/ saving the key instead of the new file we want to save?

How large could that kind of key be, if possible at all?
