    Blowfish

    I looked a the description of this algorithm but I don't understand it. Could someone explain the algorithm to me in plain English so that I can begin implementing it.

    You should tell the board members what aspect you don't understand of the explanation you've been given.

    Also, why are you implementing this yourself, instead of using some preëxisting implementation?

    I don't understand what the S-Boxes do and how to generate them. How do you make the P-boxes?
