Is it appropriate to post a design of an algorithm to be reviewed and commented on if I provide enough information about it (drawings, technical details)?

  • $\begingroup$ @Gilles That kind of answers my question but I would not be asking for cryptanalysis of my design more can people think of any improvements or can people see any flaws i have missed and can they explain them to me to help me impove $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ “can people think of any improvements or can people see any flaws” — if your algorithm is about cryptography then this is cryptanalysis (and if your algorithm isn't about cryptography then what would it be doing on this site). $\endgroup$ Feb 19 '17 at 12:50
  • $\begingroup$ @Gilles Thanks for clarifying do you know any other places where I could post for peer reveiw or improvements? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Post it on iacr and convince people that you have something interesting to say. This is typically done by getting your paper accepted at a crypto research conference. Analysis of a cryptographic algorithm takes years of effort, so it also takes effort to convince people to do it. $\endgroup$ Feb 19 '17 at 12:54
  • $\begingroup$ @Gilles Thanks this should be helpful but do you know anything more ammetur? because I would only class my skills at a medium level $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You may also ask here to try to find people interested to help you. $\endgroup$
