#### Usage examples of algorithm.

To TRANSLTR all codes looked identical, regardless of which __algorithm__ wrote them.

The __algorithm__ generates a key it thinks is secure, and TRANSLTR keeps guessing until it finds it.

Because brute-force computers broke codes by examining cleartext for identifiable word patterns, Harne proposed an encryption __algorithm__ that, in addition to encrypting, shifted decrypted cleartext over a time variant.

Without revealing his __algorithm__, he had proven to the NSA that it was unbreakable.

Digital Fortress could be nothing more than a generic, public-domain __algorithm__, and none of these companies could break it.

An __algorithm__ that resists brute force will never become obsolete, no matter how powerful code-breaking computers get.

Then it probably would embed the __algorithm__ in a tamper-proof chip, and within five years every computer would come preloaded with a Digital Fortress chip.

The existence of an unbreakable __algorithm__ was a concept she was still struggling to grasp.

Now, incredibly, some unsuspecting Canadian tourist held the key to the most powerful encryption __algorithm__ in history.

Numataka could embed the __algorithm__ in tamper-proof, spray-sealed VSLI chips and mass market them to world computer manufacturers, governments, industries, and perhaps, even the darker markets .

Crypto team, led by Commander Strathmore, created an __algorithm__ they christened Skipjack.

They reported that it was a strong, untainted __algorithm__ and would make a superb encryption standard.

Everyone knows an unbreakable __algorithm__ is a mathematical impossibility.

Digital Fortress __algorithm__ was not wise, regardless of how interesting it would be.

As you can imagine, I was shocked when I first read his messages to North Dakota about an unbreakable __algorithm__ called Digital Fortress.
