I've been wondering about recursed encryption. The idea I'm trying to convey here is an encryption scheme where a message is encypted, then somehow encrypted again, and again, etc.
The encryption method may allow other means of security, like take a message, encypt it, shuffle it, zip it, and repeat this process.
I'm guessing that this has been explored somewhere before, but I'm not sure where or how to start researching something like this.
I guess I'm wondering if this particular topic has a name to it. I'd also like to know:
Where can we find more information about this topic?
I hope this isn't too vague a notion. I'm just trying to learn more about this and relate it to some ideas I have.
