Is there a way of increasing the time to brute force a cipher, but by increasing the ciphertext size instead of the key size?

If you have a symmetric-key algorithm that is limited to using a small key size (say 40-bits) is there any way you could increase the resistance to brute force attacks without increasing the key size? ...

Maximum security strength in bits of ISAAC cipher?

Wikipedia claims key length can be very big in this cipher, so I assume it can offer a million bits of security provided entropy of key is the same? Of course I can SHA-256 hash the key to allow any ...

Vulnerability of low value generated key

I have read here that Elgamal is resistant to brute-force attack, because the group to where the key is selected is very large. But since the key generation is random, (i assume)there is a chance that ...
