There are many aspects to security approach in online communication environment. One essential aspect for secure communications is that of cryptography, which is the focus of this paper. This paper aims at designing and implementing cryptosystem using a simple polyalphabetic cipher algorithm. The algorithm was coded with Java programming language.
