XOR Encryption

In cryptography, XOR Encryption, also known as XOR Cipher, is a encryption algorithm. With this algorithm, a string of text can be encrypted by applying the bitwise XOR operator to every character using a given key. To decrypt the output, merely reapplying the XOR function with the key will remove the cipher.

char* XORCipher(char* data, char* key, int dataLen, int keyLen) {
	char* output = (char*)malloc(sizeof(char) * dataLen);

	for (int i = 0; i < dataLen; ++i) {
		output[i] = data[i] ^ key[i % keyLen];

	return output;


									char* text = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.";
char* key = "secret";
int dataLen = strlen(text);
int keyLen = strlen(key);
char* cipherText = XORCipher(text, key, dataLen, keyLen);
char* plainText = XORCipher(cipherText, key, dataLen, keyLen);
