I need a alternative encryption alcorithm to AES. It shouldn't be AES, Twofish or Serpent and it must be very strong. I dont care about the performance.

  • $\begingroup$ What properties do you need? ChaCha is enjoying increased popularity, but being a stream cipher it's not suitable for every application. Depending on the application, authenticated encryption may be a better choice than plain encryption. $\endgroup$ Dec 21 '14 at 16:06

  • $\begingroup$ You could probably do better encrypt your message with marker and decrypt with X-ray. $\endgroup$

Camellia perhaps? NESSIE (EU) and CRYPTREC (Japan) both endorse it.

Your requirements are brief and mysterious so it's difficult to give further suggestions.
