Encryption techniques are playing vital role to alter the digital data in to another form which is tough to understand and maintain the data confidentiality. In this paper an optimized data encryption system based on interweaving technique and Genetic Algorithm(GA) is developed which provide solutions to the issues such as statistical attacks, confidentiality, illegal duplication and manipulation of digital data. GA is an important optimization technique and is employed to optimize the performance of our proposed system. The transposition or permutation of characters in the plaintext is responsible for confusion, and the influence of each bit of the secret key on each plaintext causes diffusion. The 256 bit symmetric key is generated with help of GA and integrated for encryption.
