Anticryptography is based on the idea of making a message that decodes itself. The idea is closely linked with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence and is an attempt to answer the challenge of communicating with another, perhaps vastly different, intelligence. The goal in anticryptography is to create a message that can be easily deciphered, even by somebody (or something) who has no prior knowledge of how the message is composed or what information it contains.

    While we may never detect an information-bearing signal from another solar system, or decide to broadcast our own message, anticryptography has many real-world applications in software development and telecommunication, most of which have so far been overlooked.
