From a site http://crypto-service.narod.ru free of charge it is possible to load the program on encryption of files in random bytes «CryptoService.exe» in which as the open and closed passwords photos of queen of England will be used, the president of USA, the president of Russia, the prime minister of Japan, the photo of the most well-known picturesque cloths in a history of mankind, a photo of animals etc. As passwords can use files of an arbitrary size and an arbitrary contents. The files ciphered by open passwords, are decrypted only by the appropriate closed passwords. Open passwords can be published in any mass media. To decrypt files it is impossible even theoretically or as were expressed in the Internet to decrypt files it is impossible even «with application of Martian technologies». At significant simplification of «Algorithm of encryption of files in random bytes this» algorithm will be transformed to known «Algorithm of encryption by one-time notebooks» which, as is known, is not cracked basically. The algorithm of one-time notebooks is realized not simply, and the algorithm of random one-time notebooks is realized. Moreover, the algorithm of one-time notebooks is realized exclusively as algorithm of random one-time notebooks. Load the program while the state has not forbidden it to do.

I'm not sure if this is spam or just complete nonsense.

What's funny is, all of these "ads" posted here once in a while probably aren't bots and are real people.

It was the phrase "Martian technologies" that caught my eye. I wasn't sure the Martians were all that advanced in technology, at the present.

Of course -- that's what the Martians WANT you to think. Fortunately, we have this guy's services to provide us with cryptography that even those Martians can't break. Finally, we are saved!

That is the strangest post on any forum I've ever seen.

Are "one-time notebooks" those 100$ things with a handcrank that UN is sending to Africa?

No, I think he means "one-time pad", which is a term in cryptography for when I send you a coded message, and there is a key for that message, and that key is only used one time (hence the term 'one-time pad'). Basically, the content of the 'one-time pad' is the encryption key. If your key is:
BCBCA

and your message is:
HELLO

the encrypted result is:
IGMNO
(B = 1, C = 2, A = 0)

Now, this technique is "perfect" in the sense that I can choose a different key to encrypt a different message in order to obtain the same encrypted result. The "perfection" comes from the fact that an attacker has no way to prefer one message over the other.

If you use a code over and over again, you can start eliminating options, which is why the code-pad is "one-time only": the more you use it, the higher chance there is of breaking it.

Now, with all this in mind, I still have no idea what this guy is trying to say... :-)

Perhaps his real message is encrypted.. ;)

To be fair to the original poster, if you go to the site mentioned, it seems that it is a genuine attempt to provide encryption, with the material on the site translated from Russian to English, by - shall we say - someone whose native language is not English (possibly a program).

If you are interested in cryptography, one site of interest is:

http://www.schneier.com/

In particular look at "Crypto-Gram Newsletter", links to which are on his site.
