Given a string S, the task is to encrypt the string and decrypt the string again to the original form. 
Encryption Technique: If L is the length of the string, then take two values, one the ceil of √L (say b), and the other floor of √L (say a), and make a two-dimensional matrix having rows = a, and columns = b. 
If rows*columns < L, then increase the value of a or b, whichever is minimum. Fill the matrix with the characters of the original string sequentially. After obtaining the matrix, read the matrix column-wise and print the obtained string. 
 

Decryption Technique: If L is the length of the encrypted string, then again find the two values a and b, where a is the ceil value of the √L and b is the floor value of the √L. Similarly create a 2D Matrix in which store the string column-wise and read the matrix row-wise to get the string in the original form. 
 

 

Encryption Approach: 
 

  • Find the length L of the string.
  • Find the ceil and floor values of √Length and assign them to the variables.
  • Check if the product of the two variables >= Length, if not then increments the variable having a lesser value by 1.
  • Create a 2D matrix and fill the characters of the string row-wise.
  • Read the matrix column-wise to get the encrypted string.

Decryption Approach: 
 

  • Find the length L of the string.
  • Find the ceil and floor values of √Length and assign them to the variables.
  • Create a 2D matrix and fill the matrix by characters of string column-wise.
  • Read the matrix row-wise to get the decrypted string.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// C++ implementation for Custom
// Encryption and Decryption of String
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to encrypt the string
string encryption(string s)
{
    int l = s.length();
    int b = ceil(sqrt(l));
    int a = floor(sqrt(l));
    string encrypted;
    if (b * a < l) {
        if (min(b, a) == b) {
            b = b + 1;
        }
        else {
            a = a + 1;
        }
    }
 
    // Matrix to generate the
    // Encrypted String
    char arr[a][b];
    memset(arr, ' ', sizeof(arr));
    int k = 0;
     
    // Fill the matrix row-wise
    for (int j = 0; j < a; j++) {
        for (int i = 0; i < b; i++) {
            if (k < l){
                arr[j][i] = s[k];
            }
            k++;
        }
    }
 
    // Loop to generate
    // encrypted string
    for (int j = 0; j < b; j++) {
        for (int i = 0; i < a; i++) {
            encrypted = encrypted +
                         arr[i][j];
        }
    }
    return encrypted;
}
 
// Function to decrypt the string
string decryption(string s){
    int l = s.length();
    int b = ceil(sqrt(l));
    int a = floor(sqrt(l));
    string decrypted;
 
    // Matrix to generate the
    // Encrypted String
    char arr[a][b];
    memset(arr, ' ', sizeof(arr));
    int k = 0;
     
    // Fill the matrix column-wise
    for (int j = 0; j < b; j++) {
        for (int i = 0; i < a; i++) {
            if (k < l){
                arr[j][i] = s[k];
            }
            k++;
        }
    }
 
    // Loop to generate
    // decrypted string
    for (int j = 0; j < a; j++) {
        for (int i = 0; i < b; i++) {
            decrypted = decrypted +
                         arr[i][j];
        }
    }
    return decrypted;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    string s = "Geeks For Geeks";
    string encrypted;
    string decrypted;
     
    // Encryption of String
    encrypted = encryption(s);
    cout << encrypted << endl;
     
    // Decryption of String
    decrypted = decryption(encrypted);
    cout << decrypted;
    return 0;
}
