comment After implementing a novel encryption algorithm, how would one go about analyzing its security or get help from others in doing so?
I have not been twiddling my thumbs for the past two years, if that is what you mean.

Would you be interested in trying to decrypt one of the messages that you proposed? I could provide a ten-thousand byte message and two-hundred byte message for you.

Would the facts that (1) it can selectively encrypt certain bytes and ignore others and (2) it can encrypt a block of bytes of any size be competitive advantages? To clarify: (1) Someone may only want to encrypt bytes having the values 32 - 95. Maybe the person only wants to encrypt printable bytes. It might be advantageous to encrypt all but null bytes. (2) The encryption strength is easily configurable. If you want to encrypt a block of 10 bytes at a time, you can. If someone else wants the encryption window to be 10000 bytes, it is possible. The block is considered for each encoded byte.

comment After implementing a novel encryption algorithm, how would one go about analyzing its security or get help from others in doing so?
Why? I have been programming for fun over the past ten years while studying the subject in school and college. As a child can learn much from playing, constantly trying to learn more and exercising that knowledge has expanded my understanding in computer science. A brief, shallow study of cryptography encouraged me to play with the concept; but like any student, instruction from a more knowledgeable person is needed. When I know what is wrong with my designs, wisdom can be applied to any further activity in the field.

Shows you how little I know but also why I want to learn more. :-)

What is the simplest method of getting years of peer review and revision for a new cryptographic algorithm? I am trying to find out where to start.

If that is the case, no one should use cryptography. Some person or group must have developed cryptography. Therefore, it is that group's own algorithm. Neither they nor anyone else should use it. I understand what you mean, but your comment needs further support. Experts in cryptography were not always experts in cryptography. They had to learn to be experts in cryptography. Maybe I would like to learn to be an expert in cryptography. What is the best way to get professional review of an algorithm?
