Most of the encryption algorithms used today generates huge cipher messages as well as long encryption keys. These approaches require time and are computationally intensive .While sending data packets through the network a compression technique along with cryptography can be applied to reduce the data packet size for better bandwidth utilization and hence faster transmission of data. In this study we propose a new encryption technique which will encrypt data into reduced size cipher text while keeping the check on size of key. The algorithm was first introduced in an earlier paper. In this study we modified algorithm to preprocess text as well as numeric data.
