Tower Floor -- Encryption

This floor has a very new feel to it, but everywhere you look you see patches of seeming random patterns. It is almost as if very heavy and intense computational magic has been performed so as to warp and hide the stored information.

Looking at a large sign on the wall, you first see what looks to be impossible mid-bending runes that make no sense at all. However as you stare the runes warp and dissolve into legability.

   Using encryption on the Internet is the equivalent of arranging an
   armored car to deliver credit-card information from someone living in a
   cardboard box to someone living on a park bench.       -- Gene Spafford

   The equivelent of an armored car should always be used to protect any
   secret kept in a cardboard box.                    -- Anthony Thyssen
                        On the use of Encryption for Password Protection

The marble circle is in its usual location, and the stairs are clearly signed, X windows upward, and Co-Processing downward.
