Depends on the encryption. Properly applied, one-time pad encryption
cannot be cracked. The mathematics are clear (and beyond the scope of
this newsgroup), but you might consider how to create an algorithm to
crack encryption that wasn't generated by an algorithm in the firs

All examples of one-time pad encryption being cracked (e.g. Venona)
are the result of agents misusing key data.
