Rivest Cipher 6 (RC6)

RC6 was developed for an advanced encryption standard (AES) competition but was not selected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In what year was it published, and who developed it? How is RC6 different from RC5?

Cryptography is the art or science encompassing the principles and methods of transforming an intelligible message into one that is unintelligible and then retransforming that message back to its original form [1]. The security in computer systems can be increased by is encrypting and decrypting the data. In this technique original message is called plain text. Encryption is the process of converting the plain text (original message) into cipher text (encrypted text). Decryption is the process of transferring the cipher text (encrypted text) into Plain Text (original message) which is shown in figure 1. Encryption and decryption are controlled by cryptographic keys.
