105. No they don't. The encrypted files you and I receive are identical
Edited on Fri Dec-03-10 04:14 PM by Azathoth
If they aren't, then each of us will need a different set of keys to decrypt them. This is mathematical.

Maybe I should put it another way. Suppose I have a file called ABC and I encrypt it with key 12345 and call the output ABC-1. Then I go back and encrypt file ABC with key 12345 and call the output ABC-2. Mathematically, this means that ABC-1 and ABC-2 are identical.
