    Is this any more viable than regular encryption? Like, if you pass the encoded hex on to the intended recipient and the two of you have a previously established 36-base key that you add to the encoded hex to get the real hex, would that in any way be safer than AES256?

    With the shear amount of characters in the library, and encrypting using a shared key, I’d say its a pretty safe bet that no one will ever intercept that message without having both keys and the established hex. Sounds like a great method to me!

    Heck,

    Honestly its almost secure enough to just search for the text you want on a single page, copy the hex information and just pass that depending on the situation. It would be a form of “Security through Obscurity”. Honestly if the protocol is established beforehand securely face to face who would ever figure out that the number is referencing a hex shelf wall volume and page number in the library of babel?

    Just saying…
