Playfair cipher is an interesting data encryption technique with a medium level of complexity, and therefore, is suitable for security of wireless and mobile systems. [] Key Result However, the size of the key does have a notable effect and the exntrypion level increases with big keys of bigger sizes. Furthermore, increasing the size of the matrix provides better encryption results.
