What do you mean, "with a proper algorithm"?  Cryptographic algorithms 
are supposed to be secure *even when the methods used are known*.  The 
only thing that has to be secret is the key.

Proper algorithm should mean "does not leave headers or footers". The
cyphertext itself should be more or less random and unidentifiable.
