The idea of giving secret key through a process is bugging me. As most of my script are for automating daily routines so I cannot give them security key directly.

comment For someone who has a key and ciphertext, is it possible to find out what encryption algorithm was used?
@Deer Hunter Why are saying I am disagreeing with Mr Kerckhoff principle can you ellaborate. From my point of view the security of the encrypted message depends solely on the security of the encryption key. There is a difference between a encrpytion algorithm and encryption message.

I mean working of encryption algorithm should not depend on the key like classical ciphers else you should keep the algorithms secret as well.

comment What are the security implications of storing password blacklist?
I think security implication is out of context for your question more relevant question would be what benefit we can get and how to maintain such a list. Your can also review previous post on same topic security.stackexchange.com/questions/39051/…

comment What are other channels Botnets can use for command and control except IRC
There are different classes of botnet like IRC based, HTTP based, P2P based etc. But your term effective is very ambiguous like it can mean stealth, or it can mean efficient communication bots between bot and server.
