A. Flipping Operation
Table 1 – ASCII Table
One piece of the secret information is the
flipping key and its length is 128 bits, and it is used
to obscure the plaintext or cipher text further. Given a
128-bit input PT (Plain Text) and a flipping key F,
We denote the flipping operation on PT as below:

Output=Flip (F, PT)

In the flipping operation, its 128- bit input is

disguised as follows: For each bit of the input, if the
corresponding bit of the flipping key is 0, the
corresponding bit of the flipping key is 1, the Again this table is divided into subsets.
corresponding output bit will be the complement of
the input bit. That is, if the flipping key bit is 0 and Table 2 – Subset Table
the input bit is 0/1, the output of the flipping
operation is 0/1. On the other hand, if the flipping
key bit is 1 and the input bit is 0/1 the output of the
flipping operation is 1/0. In reconstructing the
original input, the output of the flipping operation is
flipped against the same flipping key.

B. Substitution Operation

This algorithm uses substitution and Inverse

and the column indicates the right digit. Again this
table is subdivided into subsets. For dividing the
subset into blocks, we have to follow the following
procedure. If the no of characters is less than or
equal to 10, we have to divide this into two halves. If
the number of characters is even number, we divide it
into equal halves. Suppose, the number of characters
is odd number, we have to divide this into 2 subsets
but the size of the first subset is greater than the
second subset by 1. To construct the substitution
