I am trying to develop a method of saving encrypted data. One method I
have used is to create is to encrypt the data and then encrpt it again
N number of times.
Does this buy me anything, other then a slow process?
Another thought was to do the same, but change the encrtyption methods
Is there any value in these aproaches am I making a stupid mistake?
My biggest problem in the past is finding algorithums that work the
same on both Windows and Lunix.

Re: Rainbow Table vs Multiple Hashes - Does this make sense?
If you use the same key in all rounds, you gain nothing.
No better. Don't use several algorithms, use several keys. Google for
There is a certain pedagogical value there ;-)
Use AES as the encryption algorithm, unless you have a good reason to do
otherwise. There are also well debugged open source libraries out there.
They'll save lots of your time. (And probably your ass, too, several
BTW, there are also full open source programs that run under many systems,
E.g. TrueCrypt supports both Windows and Linux.
