Abstract: In present days the transmission of data in a secured manner is a big issue. During the transmission different kinds of attack may happen and affect the data. Due to that reason lot of researchers are still working to provide better and secured cryptographic algorithms. The DNA Cryptography is a new and promising area to achieve higher information security, where the characteristics of human DNA molecules are followed as the DNA have complex structure and features. In this paper a couple of 128 bit publicly available DNA sequences are taken to form the secret keys. Moreover a better level of message encryption technique is proposed where two rounds encryption has been carried out among the plain text and the generated two secret keys and produce a cipher DNA sequence with appending some extra information within it.
Keywords: DNA sequence, Final Cipher, Key, Nucleotide.
