In this paper we introduce a fresh encrypting strategy. Our encryption scheme is based on the concept of contractive functions in a Banach space. The algorithm uses two different concepts of mathematics: contraction principle, unique prime factorisation theorem. The mixture of these two concepts is beautiful and it promises a high level of security with an easy to learn mechanism.
