Welcome to Crypto.SE. I recommend you checked out one time pad. Then, with a basic understanding on that, try searching this site for any questions that might pop up. I hope this helps.

comment Is the 1st Encrypted Block Less Secure Than Subsequent Ones?
@D.W I'm not trying to make a fuss, but I know that efforts to maintain a high standard on content can dissuade newer users from participating further. This is my main concern, and this is why I write this to you

comment Is the 1st Encrypted Block Less Secure Than Subsequent Ones?
@D.W The OP described the two modes of operation correctly, which suggests he has already consulted standard sources. Not everyone can figure stuff out on their own, nor can they ask good questions all the time. Your entire comment was aimed at helping the OP, but only the last two sentences do so. This question is OK.
