# Any techniques for evading frequency based crypt analysis without encrypting?

Are there any general techniques for evading frequency based crypt analysis without using any encryption techniques?

Why would you need to evade cryptanalysis period if you aren't using encryption? –  mikeazo Feb 17 '12 at 15:17
Your question isn't really clear. What are you trying to do? –  Paŭlo Ebermann Feb 17 '12 at 19:00
Compression tends to flatten frequencies, but is of course designed to be undone and thus has no crypto value by itself. –  GregS Feb 18 '12 at 17:52

Have a look at "Chaffing and winnowing: Confidentiality without encryption", RL Rivest, CryptoBytes (RSA laboratories), 1998. You can find the paper on scholar.google.com

Yes i looked at this , thx ! but that doesnot help me . –  sashank Feb 18 '12 at 8:33
@sashank but that doesnot help me – That comment really confuses me… if the answer was not helpful to you, why did you accept it? –  e-sushi May 28 at 3:19

No.

Frequency-based cryptanalysis aims at breaking an encryption technique; hence evading frequency-based cryptanalysis implies an encryption technique.

Because frequency-based cryptanalysis is a poor attack, even some ridiculously weak encryption technique may evade frequency-based cryptanalysis. For example, putting the symbols alphabetically on two rings, using that as a correspondence table, and sliding the rings by one step after each use evades frequency-based cryptanalysis, at least in basic form.
